Let Us Satisfy Our Eyes

January 15

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until 15th January 2018


Alun Kirby, artist in residence at York Explore, has transformed one of the cafe windows with his cyanotype photographic artwork.  His work represents his time spent in the Archives, researching the stained glass of York and celebrates the artists such as the Knowles family who have been making and caring for York’s stained glass for over 800 years.







So come, as in a favourite quote of J W Knowles from Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’, and…

 ‘Let us satisfy our eyes with the memorials and the things of fame which do renown this city’

The Knowles Collection is  fully accessible by the public – just ask at the Archive information desk on the first floor.

Watch Alun’s That’s York TV News appearance here.
