There is no place like the Guelph Youth Music Centre's upstairs foyer windows for showing glass artwork. Last year GYMC agreed to install rods over the foyer windows for hanging the first Glass In The Music Centre exhibition.
The event will showcase artists from Guelph and area who are each known for their unique approaches to glass. Traditional and contemporary stained glass, mosaics, kiln-formed and etched glass will all be found in this exhibition.
Please join us to celebrate the work of Jean Loney, Heather Robinson, Heather Wood, Cristina Ciloci, Barbara Bryce, Gabriella Vegvari, Karen Bellamy, Breslau Art Glass and the Glass Guild of Guelph.
The Art Glass will be on display from November 9 to January 5.

The organization's efforts have been recognized as an outstanding community project through major grants and donations from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Carolyn Sifton Foundation, the Rotary Club of Guelph Foundation, the Homewood Corporation, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Dupont Canada, and the Suzuki String School of Guelph, as well as generous support of local corporations and individuals.
The Guelph Youth Music Centre also received special tribute by the judges of the 1999 National Communities in Bloom competition at which the City of Guelph took First Place. Specifically, the extraordinary amount of volunteer effort involved in the construction of the facility was noted. In fact, it is estimated that over 20,000 hours were contributed by more than 100 volunteers towards the completion of this project. Currently volunteers contribute countless hours annually, assisting with the operations and programming of the facility.
The GYMC is used by over 1,000 children and their families on a weekly basis, and directly benefits 4,000 additional area residents annually through comunity concerts and outreach programs.
