We are bringing back “The Art of Elinor Thien” that was one of our displays in 2014. Port Washington artist Elinor Thien, whose father founded the village of Thiensville, was a prolific artist as well as iconoclast. Her life story is inspirational, and we are lucky to be able to share her lovely work. She also taught generations of Port Washingtonians, and we will display the work of some of her students as well.
2019 EXHIBIT: May 25 – August 31. Trends are certainly cyclical. Today’s younger generations, hipsters, and innovators reach back into the past for inspiration on the present. We are going to feature popular current movements, like: • Farm to table/Locavore • Facial hair fashions and • Home schooling to list a few, that were part of the daily round during the Victorian era. Come visit and take inspiration from history compared to current day.
Visitors have always been curious about the provenance of items in the house. Whether the objects are furniture, clothing, books, china, or pictures, original Eghart family items were identified in each room.
