Our MAM liaison, has arranged for us to have a special lecture about the
Quilts of Pauline Parker by Margaret Andera.
Margaret is the Interim Chief Curator and Curator of Contemporary Art for the Milwaukee Art Museum. She is very knowledgeable and an excellent speaker. This will be a great program.
We are a supporting sponsor for the Pauline Parker Quilt exhibition and were set to have a curator-guided tour last March. Unfortunately, Covid-19 closed down all of our activities and so here we are, a year later, reconnecting with this program. The exhibit is on the second floor. When MAM is fully reopened, we will be able to schedule group visits. Until then, we are very fortunate to have this opportunity to see the quilts and learn about the artist and her work.
January 8, 2021 we celebrated with a Virtual Tea Party. We watched a documentary about the life and work of Beatrix Ferrand, an American landscape gardener and the first woman landscape architect. Prior to the presentation, our members received tea and 2 recipes to enjoy during the film.
