We are very pleased to announce that we have successfully tendered on the The Bishop O’Loughlin Memorial Window for St Mary’s Cathedral in Darwin. This groundbreaking new project involves a complete de-glaze of the existing main entrance windows and framing, followed by installation of a brand new cyclone rated framing system, glazed with cyclonic glass that will be printed using ImagInk.
The new windows will feature eight individual artworks, which have been created by a selection of Indigenous artists representing different areas of the Northern Territory. Remember the three mysterious images we posted back in August? They were closeups of samples from a series of extensive colour tests we have been running to ensure the best possible reproduction of the artworks on glass.
We will be working closely with the team at the Darwin Diocese and artist representative Cait Wait as the project progresses towards its scheduled installation date of late November. We will be posting regular updates on the blog as we go, and we’ll also give you a full run down on the artworks and that artists that have created them, so keep those eyes and ears peeled.
