Reception for Jamestown exhibit is Sunday
A Jamestown exhibit will be on loan to the Yates House Community Arts Center in Deltaville from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) in October. The opening reception is Sunday, October 5, from 3 to 6 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through October 25. Times will be announced at a later date.
Archaeologists from the Jamestown Rediscovery project are uncovering James Fort’s oldest artifacts, and creating a revised picture of life in the first permanent English settlement in America. The exhibition’s 12 panels paint a vivid picture of the struggles of the early colonists, while illustrating critical processes of historical archaeology. Research, images, text, and support materials are being developed with the guidance of Tonia Deetz Rock, statewide educational coordinator for the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities.
A stained glass class will be held at Yates House on October 10-11 and October 17-18. The registration, time and fee for classes will be announced later. The class will be taught by stained glass artist Allan Langer.
On October 18, a class will be held on making Halloween pumpkin holders and ghost tealight candle holders by painting wine glasses. The class will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration is required.
