    Five years ago, Homewood Museum was given a portrait of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the father of Charles Carroll of Homewood and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. When it arrived, the painting was in need of extensive restoration but was thought to be in the style of—or possible a long-lost portrait by—famed 19th-century American portraitist Chester Harding. Now, with work completed and the painting hanging proudly in the museum's Drawing Room, Homewood hosts this exclusive reveal party in appreciate of the JHU Museums' upper-level members.  

    Listen as fine art conservator Heather Smith, frame conservator Bill Adair, and JHU art history major Julianne Schmidt describe the restoration process and discuss what secrets the portrait has yielded—and what answers remain elusive. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres served.

    The House Beautiful Lecture: Canopy and Canap├ęs
    April 2, 2019  |  6:30 PM8:30 PM

    Ticket includes a reception with wine and light hors d'oeuvres. Limited space; advance registration is strongly recommended.

    Throughout the fall and winter of 2018/2019, a team of craftsmen worked with painstaking precision to restore Evergreen's 1905 Tiffany glass and wrought-iron canopy. With work now complete, hear what it took to reinvigorate this Beaux Arts beauty from the master craftsmen responsible: Steve Dykstra and Lee Badger of Anvil Works, a custom metalworking firm based in West Virginia, and Mark Forrest West a Baltimore-based artist who specializes in antiques, historic design, and restoration. The illustrated talk will include a trip outside to see the canopy in person. A reception with the speakers will follow the talk.

    Join Evergreen Museum & Library for a special day trip to Glenstone Museum. Located in Potomac, Maryland, this private museum—open by appointment only—houses the modern and contemporary art collection of billionaire industrialist Mitchell P. Rales and his wife, Emily Wu Rales. The museum opened as a single building on 100 acres in 2006 but just completed a major renovation that more than doubled the campus' acreage and quintupled the museum's gallery space. Throughout its campus, Glenstone features more than 1,300 works by post-WWII masters including Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Mark Rothko, Cy Twombly, Alexander Calder, and Ruth Asawa. Come explore this unique museum that the Washington Post calls "quietly spectacular."

    The price includes roundtrip transportation, admission, and lunch at Normandie Farm Restaurant.

    The bus will depart promptly from Evergreen Museum & Library at 9 a.m. and return by 4:30 p.m. (traffic may affect these times). Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes as walking will be required.
