Default Re: RIP Arthur Stern
The Stern Studios family is deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved Arthur Issac Stern who passed peacefully on September 22, 2021. His impressive 45-year career as an architectural glass and stained glass artist comes out of the American glass tradition, drawing inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School.
His vast knowledge of and passion for architecture, the visual arts, music of many genres, the mandolin, classic cars, and generations of beloved Maine Coon cats that served devotedly as studio assistants was shared by many of you. His essence lives on in the play of light on glass, in the space between musical notes, in his exquisite designs, and in the memories we share.
A comprehensive obituary of his extraordinary life will be published in the coming days. Arthur Stern Studios, including the gallery, remains open. We will gather to celebrate Arthur, our extraordinary friend, in 2022.
Arthur Issac Stern (18 June 1950 – 22 September 2021)
