Sarah Hall Tour

In July my husband Peter and I took a tour of glass art installations designed by one of Canada’s premiere glass artists.  Sarah Hall is an artist I’ve known and admired for a couple of decades.  The Royal Ontario Museum organized a bus tour with Sarah as our host, introducing us to several of her large commissions in the Toronto area, all of which cannot be easily accessed by the public.  We visited Massey College at the U of T, a synagogue, an Anglican church, a Carmelite Catholic church, and an  innovative installation at York University incorporating solar technology.   

What a treat to spend the day with Sarah, whose great skill and talent is matched by her generous spirit.  Thanks to Peter, who so ably acted as cameraman for the day, allowing me to drink in the inspiring power of Sarah's work.
