Docent-led Tour of "Grandma" Moses Exhibit
12/9/14, Huntsville Museum of Art | 1:00 pm

A festive treat in keeping with the Season is in store for OLLI members at 1:00 PM, on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. We have arranged a special docent tour of the "Grandma" Moses exhibit at the Huntsville Museum of Art. Anna Mary Robertson Moses is one of the most popular of American folk artists and this collection of 30 of her original paintings from various sources is a fitting tribute by the museum to compliment the Holidays. This untrained artist, whose career began late in her life, used her memories from childhood to imbue nostalgic landscapes and scenes of her native New England. Her works have become treasured keepsakes for our memory of by-gone days and holiday traditions.

And, as if that is not enough, we will have an opportunity to visit the galleries holding works by Ginny Ruffner -- an inspired artist whose work in stainless steel, bronze and blown glass is renown. The museum has also assembled works of other regional artists who are acclaimed as "Masters of Studio Glass". After our museum visit, we will partake of good cheer and warm drink at Pane e Vino and have a chance to stroll through the Holiday trees and watch the ice skaters.

To save your place, contact Nell Roberts nellroberts101@gmail.com.
