The Women of Summer - "Every Piece Tells a Story"
This summer, the new program at the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg illustrates how quilts tell stories about families. The program is offered at the Hennage Auditorium of the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, 326 W. Francis St., Williamsburg. “Every Piece Tells a Story” examines two women from different generations and ethnic backgrounds to connect through a quilt. A black woman from the 1960s and a white woman from the turn of the 20th century reflect on the importance of quilts in their lives and how quilt making not only kept their family warm but brought the women a sense of pride and preserving precious memories. This program is offered at 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, June 20, July 11, July 25, Aug. 1, Aug. 8 and Aug. 15. This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, “Quilts in the Baltimore Manner,” at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum.

American Furniture: From Virginia to Vermont
This exhibition in the Elizabeth Ridgely and Miodrag Blagojevich Gallery highlights pieces from three regions: Eastern Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New England. While early furniture forms and styles from these areas were similar during the late 17th through the early 19th centuries, the interpretation and the popularity of designs varied due to differences in local economies, trade settlement patterns, and the religious and cultural backgrounds of the inhabitants. A section on painted furniture further demonstrates regional styles and decorative influences.April 01, 2012 - December 31, 2013
