Lecture: Pre-Antiques Show Lecture by Brock Jobe (Brandywine River Museum)
On 4/29/2015

Tea-drinking was a social ritual in 18th century Britain and its American colonies. The ceremony offered the opportunity for good gossipy conversation while enjoying a tasty beverage poured from a ceramic or silver pot into cups, all laid out on a handsome tea table. Join Brock Jobe for a fascinating look at the popularity of tea-drinking and the development of the tea table in the 18th century. Mr. Jobe teaches graduate courses in historic interiors, decorative arts, and twentieth-century design in the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture. He assumed the position of professor of American decorative arts in 2000 after a twenty-eight year career as a museum curator and administrator. His fields of interest are early American furniture and upholtery, and domestic interiors from 1700 to 1900.

The galleries and the museum shop will open at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided with a complimentary glass of wine until the lecture begins at 7 p.m. Follwing Mr. Jobe's lecture, coffee and dessert will be provided at 8 p.m. Tickets are available on the museum's website or by calling 610-388-8326. Cost is $25. This Antiques Show program benefits the Volunteers' At Purchase Fund through which works of art are purchased for the Brandywine River Museum of Art's collection.
