Friends of Decorative Arts Lecture

Friends of Decorative Arts Lecture

Inge Hatton fell in love with folk art when she moved to Nova Scotia and discovered the Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival in 2000. She was inspired to learn more about the artists, began collecting their work, and even opened a gallery, The Spotted Frog.

At the outset, Nova Scotia folk artists chiefly whittled wood and would often give their pieces to family and friends, who would sometimes try to craft similar objects of their own. They primarily responded to nature—the fields, sea, and woods—and produced whimsical, engaging works. They have even ventured into political satire. Ms. Hatton will share some of her experiences with the artists and will specifically discuss the work of Rick Brittain, Richard Crowe, Bradford Naugler, Leo Naugler, Mark Robichaud, and Julie Smith.

Friends of Decorative Arts

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 p.m. during season. Non-FODA members can attend for $5, plus MFA admission. Carolyn Nygren is the volunteer coordinator.
