Haverford Library hosts art program

Posted: March 15, 2013

Do the names Celilia Beaux or Violet Oakley ring a bell?

How about Faith Ringgold, an artist renown for her painted quilt series and who used her art to portray the civil rights movement from a female perspective?

If you want to know more, the Haverford Township Free Library will hosted a program A Room of Her Own: Women in American Art. Dressler Smith, of the Pennsylvania Academy of the fine Arts will lead a discussion on pioneering 19th century women artists. Smith will show how the political and cultural change in American history "both inspired and challenged women artisits."

The event, to be held on Sunday March 24 at 2p.m. will be at the library on 1601 Darby Road, in Havertown and is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Mary Bear Shannon at 610-446-3082 ext. 216, or visit www.haverfordlibrary.org.
