"Hello Dolly" Expo

After a long summer of planning, we are proud and excited to invite you to our Doll Expo.  Over 70 dolls have been contributed from a broad base of our members.  They range from pristine, museum quality to well loved.  Some are even missing body parts. 

 

Porcelain, textiles, rubber, plastic media are seen.  European, Asian, and American dolls in related costume from the 16th century style to the present are represented. 

 

We feel that this exhibit will evoke fond memories of childhood and our first love, our dolls.  Come, enjoy, celebrate and admire them together with us.

Georgia O'Keefe: Flower Power

We will learn about this artist who has been described as the "undisputed doyenne of American painting" in a slideshow/lecture format.  The focus will be on this fearless, modest woman and her own refined, slightly removed art.  The extraordinary life of the woman behind the masterpieces will be delved into and discussed. Louise Cella Caruso is a noted art historian who has studied at CW Post, the Metropolitan, the Louvre, Prado, Vatican and Uffizi.
