Friends of Decorative Arts: Threads: One Artist’s Journey
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 $50 in addition to a minimum of a Dual Level 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.
Laura Militzer Bryant has worked primarily in textiles for over 35 years. Bryant will discuss Fiber Art, its development, and explore how it has informed her practice. Illustrated with examples of her own work and those who have influenced her, Bryant will lead you on a developmental journey spanning decades. Bryant has received an Individual Artist Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Florida State Individual Artist Grant, and is featured in major corporate collections across the United States.
