Ruthmere presents Gallery Talks the first week of each month. The day of the week often changes to provide maximum opportunity for the public to attend, and start time is always 11am. Gallery Talks feature a twenty-minute discussion on an object/artwork within the Ruthmere collection, a person or event in local history, or a topic from the Victorian/Edwardian eras. Gallery Talks are free and open to the public.
SPONSORS NEEDED: Ruthmere Private Members and Business Members can sponsor an individual Gallery Talk for just $100! To reserve your sponsorship contact Executive Director Bill Firstenberger at firstname.lastname@example.org
