"History Collectors" exhibit series debuts
By Laura Lover
The SOHO curatorial team is excited to announce the opening of History Collectors: SOHO Members Share their Collections on March 20 at the Marston House. This charming exhibit will feature a beautiful collection of American hand painted porcelain, generously loaned by Carol Davis. Opening day coincides with another special event, "The Fine Art of Tea & Chocolate: A Tasting Experience," at 1pm at the museum.
This is the inaugural exhibit in our History Collectors series, which celebrates the rich and varied collections of SOHO members. SOHO would like to thank all our members for your continued support, which includes making this fascinating series possible. We look forward to sharing some of the exquisite historical artifacts and pieces of art you have collected over the years.
Highlights of our display of Carol's collection include examples of porcelain painted at the turn of the 20th century, offering an excellent record of art created by women. Many pieces have natural themes, although styles range dramatically from Arts and Crafts to Art Nouveau. This exhibit will be on view until mid-September.
