At the end of the nineteenth century, the Glasgow Style emerged as the major manifestation of Art Nouveau in Britain. This exhibition at the Frist Museum showcases Charles Rennie Mackintosh—the greatest exponent of the Glasgow Style—as an architect, designer, and artist, and contextualizes his production within a larger circle of designers and craftspeople in the major Scottish city. Combining influences from the Arts and Crafts movement, Celtic Revival, and Japonism, Glasgow artists created their own modern design aesthetic, synonymous with sleek lines and emphatic geometries expressed in a wide range of materials. A docent with the Frist Museum will present some of the fine and decorative artworks in the exhibit. Hosted by Chevy Chase At Home.

Come listen to Susan Stockdale, a local children's book author and illustrator, inspire us with story. After spending years exploring various career paths in the artistic world, she says "my art career took an unexpected turn. While visiting the Zoo with my young children, they were amazed to see a flamingo standing on one leg - sound asleep. This inspired my first picture book, Some Sleep Standing Up. Since then, I have written and illustrated many more. My most recent title, Bird Show, was published in 2021 and my next one will be in 2023. My artwork has been featured on puzzles, calendars, and other products and exhibited in showcases such as the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show. I love opening young eyes to nature and expressing my passion for rhyme, color, and pattern in my picture books. And nature, the ultimate designer, is always my muse." Come listen to Susan share stories and inspire us with her art. No registration required, access on Zoom using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83833376097?pwd=T0J0TXZ0WC9wSi9sWHpOQWZnTWpOQT09.

Despite recent decades of feminist activism and increasing gender equity, women are still disproportionately responsible for domestic tasks, including managing family meals and nutrition. Yet the culinary industry—professionalized cooking—is predominantly male. In this FRESH TALK, speakers explore what happens when “women’s work” doesn’t necessarily uplift women and how women within and outside of the culinary industry can forge a new path forward. Speakers include culinary historian, professor, and author Jessica B. Harris; food critic, chef, podcast host, and author Soleil Ho; chef, author, and founder of Black Culinary History Thérèse Nelson; and culinary historian Laura Shapiro. The conversation will be livestreamed on the National Museum of Women in the Arts’s Facebook page and nmwa.org/livestream. This program is available for free to the public, but if you would like to support the museum, please consider making a $10 donation. Hosted by the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Join Barney Gorin for this discussion of one of the greatest orations ever made in the English language. On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln made "a few appropriate remarks" at the dedication of a new cemetery for Union war dead in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. His words, words that few if any expected to be significant, became a touchstone for people around the world. Many memorize those words and are transfixed by their power, but few take the time to examine their context and meaning. Hosted by the Village at Kentlands and Lakelands.

The histories of collecting and the art market are essential to advancing provenance research. Provenance research attempts to uncover the actors and mechanisms behind translocations, to understand the transformation of material culture, and to explore the production of knowledge within different worlds and systems of meaning. This presentation highlights the often overlooked—but nevertheless profound—influence of women on the circulation of Asian art objects. The historical analysis of the market has long focused on contributions of male dealers and collectors, as cultural norms provided them more access to formal education, financial resources, and exclusive social circles. While women were part of these networks, their participation and contributions were often less documented and have sustained little scholarly focus. This webinar attempts to recover the histories of these women and place them within the history of Western consumption of Asian art. Focusing on historical figures, this webinar reveals how women shaped private and public collections, thereby influencing the field of Asian art history. Bringing together historians, museum curators, archivists, and provenance specialists, “Untold Stories: Women and the Asian Art Trade” features new research that illuminates the diversity within the interconnected networks that moved Asian art around the globe in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Hosted by the Smithsonian National Museum of Asian Art.
