Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle hosts October lecture

The Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle presents “Old Friends, New Directions: European Ceramics at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston,” a lecture by Thomas Michie, the Russell B. and Andrée Beauchamp Stearns Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Sculpture in the Art of Europe Department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston on Monday, Oct. 24, at 1:15 p.m., at the First Congregational Church of Greenwich, 108 Sound Beach Road, Old Greenwich. Refreshments follow lecture.

Recent gallery renovations at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, have created opportunities for improved and expanded displays of the museum’s renowned collection of European ceramics, which are gradually being integrated into galleries with paintings, sculpture, and furniture. This talk provides an introduction to the MFA’s rich holdings of European porcelain and faience and the process of designing these improved displays in recently renovated galleries.

Thomas S. Michie is the Russell B. and Andrée Beauchamp Stearns Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Sculpture in the Art of Europe Department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He joined the staff of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2009 and has since overseen a dozen gallery renovations at the MFA and the installation of two British period rooms. He is a co-curator of “Europe in the Age of Casanova,” scheduled to open at the MFA in 2017.

Admission for non-members of the Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle is $25. Space is limited.  Reservations required for members and guests by Oct. 17. For reservations and information: [email protected]
