HistWick Announces a tour of the Stained Glass Windows of St. Paul’s
North Kingstown, RI At 2 PM on Sunday, September 15, 2013 Tim Cranston will present a talk on the historic nature of the stained glass windows at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Main Street in Wickford. The event is sponsored by Historic Wickford Inc. and all are invited to attend.
Tim Cranston will examine the extraordinary works of art that are the stained glass windows of St. Paul’s. These masterpieces made from glass, sunlight, and color are not only amazing in and of themselves, but they tell a story about Wickford and its residents in the late 19th century. These artistic triumphs were created by artisans in London and New York City, and also by a very special Wickfordite. Attendees will learn the story behind those to whom these windows were dedicated and about the “new” St. Paul’s Church they decorate.
The talk will be followed by a reception on St. Paul’s Greenway. Admission is free.
