Mar. 28 Meeting with Lisa Hanover, Director & CEO of the Michener Museum, answers the question
"So What IS in the Michener Museum Archives?"
As leader of the Michener Art Museum program, Hanover has overseen the transformation of the physical facility with new façade landscaping, revitalization of permanent collection galleries, refreshed curatorial efforts, a celebration of the Museum’s 25th Anniversary of operation, and negotiated for the highly successful exhibition “From Philadelphia to Monaco: Grace Kelly – Beyond the Icon” presented in 2013-2014 to over 100,000 visitors. The Michener was accredited by the American Alliance of Museums in 2001 and achieved subsequent reaccreditation in 2016. A leader in the museum field, Hanover has conducted numerous Museum Assessment Program reviews and served on AAM Accreditation teams.
April 3 Lisa Hanover on WDVR 89.3
April 25 Sandra Corpora will do a landscape/plein air lecture and demo
"My paintings attempt to capture the essence of a place and time and the beauty I see around me. The way the light falls to create a pattern of values and colors is often the thing that inspires.
It can be a person’s face, objects in a still life or the landscape softened by atmosphere, inspiration is everywhere."
From an early age, Sandra Corpora demonstrated exceptional ability at drawing and painting. She has a BFA in Painting from Kutztown University, receiving the prize for top fine art graduate.
Sandra has studied in workshops with Nelson Shanks, John Osborne, T.M. Nicolas, Kenn Backhaus and Scott Jennings. She paints primarily from life in the studio and outdoors on location.
She is inspired to constantly improve her skills as a painter in all subjects, figurative, still life and landscape.
Sandra Corpora is a member of Oil Painters of America where she won an Award of Excellence. She’s also a member of the American Impressionits Society, American Women Artists,
and the Portrait Painters of America where she was a finalist in the Members Competition. She also teaches and conducts workshops. Her work is in private and public collections in Italy, Canada,
Norway, and the US. She is represented by Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia.
