Thomas Chippendale at 300: Treasures from the Collection

Wed, Aug. 29 '18 - Mon, May. 27 '19

Exhibition • DE
Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library • 5101 Kennett Pike, Wilmington DE 19735

This year marks the 300th anniversary of Thomas Chippendale’s birth. To celebrate the 18th-century cabinetmaker and his influential publication The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director, objects from the Winterthur collection will be on view in this exhibit in the center gallery on the first floor. Using two different editions of Chippendale’s publication, furniture inspired by Chippendale’s designs, and other objects in the rococo taste, the exhibit will explore the expression of rococo style in England; showcase designs by Chippendale and several of his contemporaries and collaborators; and highlight the influence of Chippendale’s designs in furniture by Philadelphia cabinetmakers. Chippendale style continued to influence furniture designs of the late 19th and 20th centuries and has even been represented in popular culture.

Inspired Design: Asian Decorative Arts and Their Adaptations

Sat, Mar. 2 '19 - Sun, Feb. 9 '20

Exhibition • MA
Historic Deerfield, 79 Main St, Deerfield MA 01342, Saturday and Sunday 9:30-4:30.

Official Opening: May 3, 2019

By the 17th century, English and European merchants purchased and traded quantities of luxury goods such as lacquerwares, porcelains, and textiles from cultures centered in Southeast Asia. Emerging New England elites also acquired these tangible examples of global sophistication and economic success to decorate their homes and adorn their bodies. These imports proved so popular that they could hardly satisfy the growing desire for new textiles, clothing forms, furniture, ceramics, and other decorative arts. To meet this increasing demand, enterprising English, European, and American manufacturers competed with these global imports by producing more affordable versions of Asian design and decorative elements.

Inspired Design: Asian Decorative Arts and Their Adaptations highlights 18th- and 19th-century Asian decorative arts and their imitations, drawn from the museum’s rich collection. The exhibition explores how Western craftsmen adapted Asian decorative arts into a design vocabulary more familiar to them and their customers, and highlights New Englanders’ own quest for these imported goods.

First Siege

Sat, May. 25 - Sun, May. 26
9:30am - 5pm

Exhibition • OH
Fort Meigs • 29100 W River Rd, Perrysburg OH 43552

As April 29, 1813 dawned, the soldiers at Fort Meigs had been surrounded for two days by British forces and their Native American allies. This was a defining moment in the history of our state and nation. The First Siege of Fort Meigs would help turn the tide of war and usher in a series of American victories that would secure the Ohio frontier. General William Henry Harrison wrote that day, "It is at length reduced to certainty that the enemy are about to carry into effect their threatened attack on this post" and urged his men "To your posts then, fellow Soldiers, and remember that the eyes of your Country are upon you!"

Join us as Fort Meigs hosts re-enactors from across the U.S. and Canada to commemorate the First Siege of Fort Meigs by recreating authentic military camps and tactical demonstrations. Experience period camps, musket and cannon demonstrations, battle re-enactments, hands-on activities, and more!
