Bruce Porter at The Swedenborgian Church

by Theodore Ellison

On Saturday, I’m giving a talk on the glass work of Bruce Porter, an artist, writer and designer of stained glass windows in San Francisco at the turn of the century.

This talk will cover the artistry and timeline of Bruce Porter’s first career as a stained glass artist. Found in churches, private homes and exclusive clubs around California, this is a comprehensive look at Porter’s glasswork and will present the context and artistic influences that inspired his unique approach to the craft.

The Swedenborgian Church is at 2107 Lyon Street at Washington Street in San Francisco. Preceding the talk, a complementary dinner will be served at 6 p.m. followed by a lecture in the sactuary at 7 p.m. Childcare will be provided. RSVP for dinner required:
