One busy weekend

It was a jam-packed weekend at the museum with three different events on three consecutive days, all geared at different audiences.

On Friday, we hosted AfterHours@GMOA, which was the opening reception for the exhibitions Modern Threads: Fashion and Art by Mariska Karasz and Wild Ride: Artistic Lessons of Nature by Eric Strauss.

On Saturday, the monthly Family Day program offered by our education department was dedicated to the work of Mariska Karasz, and children packed the museum to take a look in our galleries and then came down to the classroom to work on their own Valentine's Day cards.

Finally, on Sunday afternoon, Solveig Cox and Rosamond Berg Brassett, the daughters of Mariska Karasz, joined Ashley Callahan to give a gallery talk on their mother's work. More than 40 people came to the museum to hear about Karasz's work, as well as some personal stories from the daughters' childhood.
