Faberge Eggs: From Fine Art to Fine Craft
March 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $10
Join us for a beautifully illustrated presentation on the life and remarkable work of Russian master jeweled-egg artist, Peter Carl Faberge, presented by artist and historian Marina Forbes. Take a photo-tour of the Faberge collections of the world, learn about the beautiful art form, and then try your own hand if you wish with a hands-on workshop.
There is a materials fee for anyone participating in the optional hands-on component of the program. This $10 fee covers the cost of the wooden egg and stand as well as the use of paints for painting on wood and brushes for the workshop.
Presenter Marina Forbes is a lecturer, historian and award-winning artist, Master Iconographer (2013, 2014 and 2015 awards for Artistic Excellence granted by The National Endowment for the Arts and The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts) who has lectured extensively on Russian traditional arts, history and the rich tapestry of Russian culture. She is featured on the NH Council on the Arts Rosters for Arts in Education and Traditional Arts and she is a speaker on Russian Arts, History and Culture with the NH Humanities Council. Each year, Marina leads cultural tours to Russia where she regularly updates her scholarship, gathering photos and documents, visiting craft factories, GULAG sites and monasteries, and interviewing journalists, political figures and scholars on the current state of affairs in Russia. Marina has a distinctive ability to generate energy and enthusiasm in the audience and to bring the rich fabric of traditional Russian art and folklore to life for children of all ages through memorable and thought-provoking programs. Marina’s talks are sometimes a little bit funny, sometimes a little bit sad…. but always unmistakably Russian.
