Friends of Decorative Arts: Cat Shoes
The decorative arts – fine furniture, jewelry, ceramics, and glass – are all around us and in the Museum. FODA expands understanding of their variety and beauty. Plus, you will make new friends at the meetings. Annual dues are $20 in addition to Museum membership.
FODA programs are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 2 pm during season. Non-FODA members can attend for $5, plus MFA admission. Carolyn Nygren is the volunteer coordinator.
Lorraine Jeffus serves as International President of THE QUESTERS, an international study organization, and has served on the Executive Board for five years. Founded in 1944, today THE QUESTERS membership is approximately 10,000 strong, in 645 chapters throughout the USA and 2 Canadian Provinces. The organization’s purpose is to educate by research and study of antiques and to donate funds for our chapters’ projects that preserve and restore artifacts, memorials, historical buildings, and landmarks.
Florida Quester Susan Maxon will inform and entertain with her program, “Cat Shoes.” Cat Shoes are considered a “cross collectible” and are small works of glass that you have probably seen, but may not have recognized. After this presentation, you will be able to spot the good, the bad and the copy. Susan Maxon is a Past Florida State President of THE QUESTERS and the former Chairman of the Art and Art Education Department of Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
