About the Event
The George Way Collection: George Way, a self-taught and skilled antiques expert was a Renaissance man. Much of his collection is adorned with ornate English and Dutch art and furniture, dating to the 1600s. We're working with the Way Estate on the acquisition of a portion of the collection. In honor of his legacy, the collection will be on display until it is divided among other local cultural institutions.
Contemporary Connections to the Past: Curated by Jessica M. Bush, the exhibit will consist of modern approaches to historic art forms. Forms of artistic compositions will include but are not limited to fiber arts, sculptures, paintings, photographs, and drawings. The exhibition seeks to showcase contemporary works that have been inspired by our collective past.
Join us for the opening reception of our latest exhibition. Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served.
