Rotary club views stained-glass panels
The Rotary Club of Woy Woy has paid a visit to the Holy Apostles Anglican Church in Woy Woy to see the stained-glass panels.
"It was an absolute joy and well attended by members, partners and friends," said club president Ms Joan Redmond.
"Artist and theologian Alexandra Banks, who designed and hand-crafted the faceted glass panels, took us though her journey from inspiration to installation."
Ms Banks told the club her journey began when she became immersed in the atmosphere created by Leonard French's stained glass windows at the National Library.
"Starting from scratch with no knowledge of how to do the task, she mastered techniques learned on YouTube and began the huge undertaking of creating the installation.
"As the evening light filtered through the panels, Alex explained the religious narrative and artistic imagery depicted on the collection of panels."
She described the presentation as exceptional and thanked the Rev Canon Michael Davies for arranging the visit.
Afterwards, we all headed up the road to Yi An Restaurant for a Chinese Banquet.
