Annual Beverley Fingerhut Memorial Lecture: Tamara de Lempicka - Art Deco Diva

Tamara de Lempicka's story is one of self-invention. From her beginnings as a Jewish aristocratic fugitive from the Russian Revolution, to taking Paris by storm as a successful artist living on her own terms, Lempicka became an icon of the Roaring Twenties. Bohemian and bisexual, her unique style reflected the shifting morals of the age, representative of the decadent European elite, boldly celebrating female sexuality. Few artists embody an epoch as completely - a true Art Deco diva. Presented in partnership with The Women’s Art Association of Canada. Generously sponsored by the Fingerhut/Metcalfe family. Guest speaker: Alexandra Epps, arts lecturer, official guide and lecturer at Tate Modern and Tate Britain

Join us for a hands-on holiday pottery workshop for youth ages 6-12. In this two-part workshop, kids will build their own unique candle holders, ritual cups and challah (bread) plates for Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath.
