    Paintings, Pattern, and Placement: Reimagining the Connoisseur's Gallery
    May 6, 2018  |  1:00 PM3:00 PM

    Opening Reception 

    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Free with Museum Admission

    Partnering with Evergreen's curators, Johns Hopkins senior Anne Hollmuller (BA/MA, History) spent the semester researching period inventories, Garrett family correspondence, and archival photographs to channel Ambassador John Work Garrett and his wife, Alice Warder Garrett, in a rehanging of their art collection in the museum's colorful, newly restored stairway and mainhall. Relying on documented arrangements, while also integrating fresh thematic groupings for interpretive benefit, Ms. Hollmuller has renewed the voice of the husband-wife duo in innovative ways, including the return of some of Mrs. Garrett's own drawings and paintings. Paintings, Pattern, and Placement: Reimagining the Connoisseur's Gallery will remain on view with museum admission indefinitely. 

    Come celebrate the restoration with the curators. Enjoy refreshments and an up close look at the space's newly installed artwork and red silk damask wallcovering.

    Join friends and members of Evergreen Museum & Library for a night of Jazz Age glamour inspired by Ambassador John Work Garrett and his wife, Alice Warder Garrett's, embrace of Internationalism. The elegant soiree will transport guests back to 1918, when the end of the Great War signaled a resumption of cultural exchange and the emergence of an aspirational new world order based on international cooperation. Arrive to the sweet strains of strolling musicians and enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the house. Then alight to the Carriage House for a seated dinner of French cuisine, dessert, trivia contests, a silent auction, and live performances by chanteuse Deborah Saunders, emcee Scott Sedar, and an enchanting Mata Hari-esque dancer. Black tie optional, diplomatic chic encouraged.
