Please join us for a fascinating lecture and slide presentation by art historian, Felicia Zavarella Stadelman.
ARTIST: WILLIAM BOUGUEREAU (1825 - 1905)
Bouguereau was one of the most important and influential artists of his time, yet his work is largely ignored in art history books. He was a French painter and used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects with an emphasis on the female human body.

February 5: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
March 5: Orphan Train by Christine Baker Kline
Chair: Susy Kahn
Please come and watch a glassblowing demonstration and learn about the process by noted artist, Earl James. James has worked in his Cleveland studio since 1990. From furnaces producing molten glass he designs and makes both functional and nonfunctional objects. His work is born out of an affinity for line, form and color and is built up in layers. He creates functional vessels and decorative items and translates line and form sculpturally.
Born in Jamaica, West Indies, and raised in Rochester, New York, James earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cleveland Institute of Art and a Masters of Fine Arts from Alfred University. His work has been well received and can be found in numerous foundations, corporate and private collections. Items can be purchased at his studio.

Jane Eisner Lecture sponsored by the Laura and Alvin Siegal Jewish Lifelong Learning Program. At a time when Jewish Women are making enormous professional strides in America, leadership in the organized Jewish community is still dominated by men. Just one example: There are more
Jewish women on the U.S. Supreme Court than running the 18 largest Jewish Federations in the country. Why this persistent imbalance? How is it being addressed?
What are the implications for the broader charity sector?
WHY DO MEN STILL DOMINATE LEADERSHIP ROLES?
