UDALLAS RELEASE: University of Dallas Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery Welcomes Liturgical Stained Glass Exhibition
From the Archives of Emil Frei & Associates: 'Sacred Transmitted: A Century of Design'
Irving, TX (11/07/2018) — Join the University of Dallas Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery as it welcomes an exhibition of liturgical stained glass designs, titled "Sacred Transmitted: A Century of Design," from the archives of Emil Frei & Associates, an award-winning liturgical stained-glass design and fabrication studio in St. Louis, Missouri. Established in 1898 and run by five generations of the Frei family, the studio has made over a thousand church windows across the United States.
The exhibition's opening reception will be held on Friday, Nov. 9, 6:30 - 9 p.m. All are welcome to learn more about the exhibition in a panel discussion from 5:30 - 6:20 p.m. in the Catholic Foundation Board Room on the second floor of Cardinal Farrell Hall. University alumni William Frank, BA '06, and Aaron Frei, BA '03 MT '06, president of Emil Frei & Associates, will present in the panel discussion. The exhibition will remain available for viewing in the Haggerty Gallery through Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019.
The Frei family and the Emil Frei Studio have a special place within University of Dallas history. The exhibition is curated by William Frank, BA '06, and Christina Hayes Haley. Frank began working at the Emil Frei Studio in 2014 as an artist in residence. Other notable UD alumni involved in "Sacred Transmitted" include Nicholas Frei, BA '06, vice president of Emil Frei Inc., project manager and craftsman, and John Wheadon, BA '02, designer, artist, craftsman and project manager for the show.
This exhibition marks the first time designs from the Emil Frei Studio will be available for viewing outside its studio in St. Louis. Many of the studio archive's watercolors, ink sketches and drawings produced by Emil Frei Studio artists will be made available for viewing inside the Haggerty Gallery during the exhibition, which reveals what typically remains hidden: the artist's working designs.
"Sacred Transmission" is made possible thanks to the generosity of the following institutions and individuals who have loaned artwork: Emil Frei Inc., Winfield Galleries, Judy Frei-Howe, Saint Louis University Library and Tony Deck.
