Events

Musconetcong Watercolor Group Exhibit & Opening Reception

watercolor painting For the month of November, many beautiful and unique watercolor works created by the members of the Musconetcong Watercolor Group will be on display.

Dorothea Day
Saturday, November 16, from 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Celebrate the legacy of our Museum’s first Curator, Dorothea Connolly. Come hear personal stories of how she inspired others, watch an episode or two of her cooking show, peruse her cookbook (and sample some recipes!) Sharing colonial crafts with children was very important to Dorothea and we will have some available for the children to try (including making a birthday candle for Dorothea, weather permitting).

We are still accepting personal stories at museum@lebtwp.net.

"Picturing the Words" with artist Doris Ettlinger
Thursday, November 21, at 7:00 pm

Doris Ettlinger will present an overview of her thirty-year career as a children’s illustrator. From thumbnail sketches to final art, Doris will show her process of translating a manuscript into visual images. On display and for sale will be some of her 40 titles, including The Legend of the Sea Glass and The Orange Shoes. Visit her website at www.dorisettlinger.com. Light refreshments will be served.
