Inside Agnes with Canta Arya Strings
Sunday, December 10th @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Join us on 10 December for music and art, great conversation and tasty refreshments at the final INSIDE AGNES session of 2017. This no-charge monthly gathering is organized by our fab member volunteers for the enjoyment of members and prospective members.
Meet in Etherington House for the Canta Arya Strings ensemble, comprising senior members of Kingston’s acclaimed Canta Arya School for Strings. Sharing the firm belief that music performed with others for others is a step to bringing harmony to the world, the Canta Arya team nurtures musical community through its recitals, concerts and workshops.
After tea, Chief Curator/Curator of Canadian Historical Art Alicia Boutilier presents two recent, exciting art purchases at the Agnes, not previously shown to the public. Yvonne McKague Housser’s “Datura” (1942) and Marian Dale Scott’s “Tulip” (around 1939) speak to the importance of still life in Canadian art history, as well as the influence of American artist Georgia O’Keefe.
