"Infinite Variety: Women of the Arts and Crafts Movement" by Pat Bartinique
The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms will present a lecture by Pat Bartinique, exploring the role of women in the Arts and Crafts Movement on Saturday, March 7 at 4:00 p.m. The event includes a reception and guided tours of the museum.
Bartinique, a Professor of English at Essex County College, states that "at the beginning of the Twentieth Century the dominant view of a woman was that of wife and homemaker," but "there was also the emerging image of the working girl struggling in ever-enlarging cities." Although men are usually associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement, we recognize that women were furniture designers, artists, potters, writers, publishers and editors, architects, and metal workers. They were also involved in the settlement houses and in handicrafts.
