K-STATE'S BEACH MUSEUM TO HOST LADIES' NIGHT FEATURING A STILL LIFE FLORAL PROJECT INSPIRED BY THE MUSEUM'S COVACEVICH EXHIBITION

MANHATTAN -- The next Ladies' Night at Kansas State University's Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art will be inspired by one of the museum's current exhibitions, "Following the Sun: The Art of Sue Jean Covacevich, 1905-1998."

The event will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 8, at the museum and will be led by Elizabeth Seaton, Beach Museum associate curator and an expert on Covacevich.

"Sue Jean Covacevich was one of the most dynamic artists and art educators in south-central Kansas during the last century," Seaton said.

Participants will tour the exhibition and learn about Covacevich's life as she traveled from Kansas to Mexico and back, later becoming a beloved art educator in Winfield and Derby.

Following the tour, participants will have the opportunity to create floral still lifes using their choice of media, including watercolors, color pencils, oil pastels and collage supplies.

The event is $10 per person, which includes all materials and dessert. Reservations are required and may be made by calling the museum at 785-532-7718.

For more information, contact the Beach Museum of Art at 785-532-7718 or drop by the museum on the southeast corner of the K-State campus at 14th Street and Anderson Avenue. Free visitor parking is available next to the building. Normal museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed Mondays.
