LADIES' NIGHT AT K-STATE'S BEACH MUSEUM OF ART JUNE 24 TO FEATURE COLLAGE GREETING CARD ART PROJECT
MANHATTAN -- The next Ladies' Night at Kansas State University's Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art will feature an art project related to the museum's "Pieces of Time: Quilts from the K-State Historic Costume and Textile Museum" exhibition.
Ladies' Night will start at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 24, and be led by Kathrine Schlageck, senior educator at the museum.
"Pieces of Time" includes American quilts and quilted children's blankets from 1840 to 1950. Each work celebrates the art of the needle and fabric. Ladies' Night participants will tour the exhibition and draw inspiration from the designs to help them in creating the night's art project: creating collage greeting cards.
"A group of women gathering to make art together is a nice variation on the tradition of quilting guilds," Schlageck said.
Ladies' Night is $10 per person and includes all materials and a dessert. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Beach Art Museum at 785-532-7718.
More information also is available by contacting the museum's Martha Scott at 785-532-7718 or dropping 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-Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed Mondays.
