Yes, an especially nice issue of Glass Art magazine with articles on several noted artists - each with a distinctive style and "voice." 

The story of Schaechter's struggle to insert the craft of stained glass into the category of "fine art" is understandable to virtually EVERYONE in stained glass.  Many of us have attempted this locally in one fashion or another, but her success in the intense and powerful spotlight of the London-New York-Philadelphia-DC high end milieu is especially impressive.  And Nancy Gong is someone whose works I have admired for many years as uniquely original and thinking quite literally "outside the box."  The other artists were all new to me and quite fun to read about - presenting new ideas of where to place art glass and what sort of new art glass in ways I would never have thought of.

Congrats to all!  After all these years the magazine just keeps getting better...
