Dan Neil Barnes Art Glass

Dan Barnes

Anew way to think about stained glass – that’s what you get when Dan Neil Barnes goes beyond traditional ideas about lamps and windows by adding treated metals, crafted wood and unique lighting to stained glass. His work moves the craft of stained glass into a new creative art form, one that pushes the idea of glass in art to a whole new level.

Commissioned in 2013, this work hangs in the front entrance to the new Owensboro Convention Center and portrays the movement of the Ohio River that runs behind the center.
