Speaker: GLENN GREENE, Artist and Owner of “Glenn Greene Stained Glass Studio”
From the Glenn Green Art Studio website
“Glenn Greene Stained Glass Studio originally opened its doors in Oakland, a community located in Pittsburgh, PA., and operated there for 12 years. Now located in Regent Square for more than 17 years, Glenn and his unique artwork have become a staple of the neighborhood.
During 35 years in the business, Glenn Greene has accomplished thousands of custom installations and art pieces for residential, institutional and commercial — as well as liturgical — environments. Through decades of working from a rich palette of styles, Glenn’s original works incorporate a mix oftraditional and non- traditional aesthetics in a startlingly original way.”

About the speaker: This self-described “normal Joe artist” is a native of Cleveland, where he apprenticed with glass masters beginning at age 15. He traveled to Pittsburgh in 1984 to do what he expected to be a two-week restoration job, but was amazed at the amount of stained glass in the city and the number of opportunities he could pursue.
