Art Highlights and Tea Series

The Art Highlights and Tea Series began roughly 16 years ago as a volunteer-led educational program. The "art highlights" talks by a great variety of volunteer presenters draw interested audiences every year. The program routinely includes four monthly lectures in January, February, March and April on the second Wednesday of each month. Lectures begin at 2pm and are always free and open to the public. Tea is served at 3pm. The cost to participate in the tea is $10/person if you’re a Museum member, or $15 if not. We offer a discounted rate if you purchase your tickets in advance for all teas in the series- $35 for members and $40 for non-members.

2018 Series:
January 10, 2018: James D. Carl, “David Parish’s European Architect, Joseph Ramée, and an Early North Country Building Effort.” Dr. Carl will speak about French architect and landscape designer Joseph Ramée and his work in the North Country in the early 1800s. Ramée was brought to America in 1812 by David Parish of Ogdensburg to participate in Parish’s land development efforts in the area. Tea hosted by Ann Groome and friends.
 
February 14, 2018: Caroline Downing, "The Adirondacks and American Art." Many artists have been inspired by the Adirondack region of New York State, including Thomas Cole, Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frederic Remington, and numerous contemporary artists. Downing will look at the work of a number of these artists, studying their individual responses to the landscape, and noting, in many cases, their strong concern for protecting the distinctive environment of what is known today as the Adirondack Park. Tea hosted by Ann Spies, Fran Naccarato, and friends
 
March 14, 2018: The life and work of early 20th century Ogdensburg sculptor Sally James Farnham, as interpreted by Carole Berard. Tea hosted by Ann Groome, Nancy Skiff, and friends.
