Tea is served at 3p.m. The cost to participate in the tea is $10/person for museum members, or $12 for non-members. A discounted rate is offered for advance tickets for all teas in the series- $35 for members and $40 for non-members.
The program routinely includes four monthly lectures in January, February, March and April on the second Wednesday of each month.
Join for an entertaining and delicious afternoon at the museum.
The following lectures are part of the series lineup:
Feb. 13: Mark McMurray, library archivist at St. Lawrence University, will present on wood engraving and half tone printing as done in Remingtons time.
These processes were used when readying Remingtons illustrations for mass reproduction in publications.
March 13: Sue Longshore, collections manager at the Silas Wright House in Canton, will present on Martha Summerhayes and her memoir Vanished Arizona, which features Remington illustrations.
April 10: Paul Pedersen will present on his experiences as a visual artist, having trained as a sculptor and then becoming an accomplished painter.
He will also present on his flatwork Lobo Calls his Mate, which is Remington inspired.
