We invite you to join us for a reception to celebrate the installation of Mary Filer’s breathtaking Triptych in the SFU Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, and her contributions to Simon Fraser University and the art world.
(Note: This invitation was sent to me personally. However, anyone who knew Mary, or who is delighted by her work, is very welcome to attend. Please contact SFU. Details below.)
Mary Filer was renowned for her work in multiple media, including murals, but it was Filer’s stained glass work for which she is most recognized. Filer has been called a pioneer for her sculptural glass works that incorporate glass shards into expressive, colourful geometric structures. Filer received a number of awards and honours, including an honorary degree from SFU and a silver medal for glass design from the Royal Canadian Architectural Institute.
