Melchers members are excited to host & welcome Director's Circle Members to join them for a special lecture by Dr. William L. Coleman on the personal art collecting of Hudson River School landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900), a contemporary of Mary Telfair and Carl Brandt.
What a person wears tells a story. From the choice of specific attire, colors, accessories, and fabrics to the way in which someone inhabits their clothes (comfortably, stiffly, self-consciously …), we find clues that chronicle the nature of the person in front of us, both on the superficial societal level and on the deeper psychological level. In this workshop, we’ll be working on one long pose with an elegantly dressed model (with a twist!) to find/create their story.
Enjoy some of the newest additions to Charleston’s history and decorative arts scene! Members will tour the International African American Museum and take in the Charleston Show, a new antiques, art, and design fair that follows the tradition of the Charleston Spring Antiques Show. Price includes lunch and all admissions.
