Friday, March 3, 2017 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

In January of 1943, Peggy Guggenheim shocked the art world by devoting an entire exhibition at her Art of This Century Gallery to women artists only. 31 Women was the first of its kind, devoting the gallery space exclusively to modern women artists, most of whom were operating in New York.
The James Library & Center for the Arts is reinterpreting this revolutionary exhibition as a fundraiser for 2017.

Tickets are $25. - Light Fare - On view March 3-31

Ukrainian-Style Egg Decorating

Saturday, March 4, 2017 - 10:00am to 1:00pm

Participants will learn a traditional wax resist method of decorating eggs as practiced by the Ukrainian people. Using a metal stylus which is heated in an open candle flame, thin layers of beeswax are applied to the egg shell before dipping it into brilliant liquid dyes. The wax protects the surface so that multiple colors can be applied. To finish, the wax is melted off to reveal a spectrum of color and pattern. The cultural meaning of traditional motifs will be explained and demonstrated but the focus of the class is on technique.
