Honoring Marianne Glick

Two things you notice before you meet Marianne Glick: The first is her broad, gleaming, ever-present smile. The second: her colorful clothes and jewelry. She sparkles. And she wears dazzling art. At any opening, you can spot her in the crowd. Her later-in-life passion for art prompted her to take up a brush and make her own palettes. You see her in her work – all the bright, rich colors. “I feel exuberant and joyful when I'm painting,” she said. And it shows. She explores the interplay between transparent and opaque warm and cool, brush work and pouring.

Cafe at the Prop Opens Aug. 5

Café at the Prop will be open for lunch on Monday, August 5, at 11 a.m. The café will resume normal business hours weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. After an extensive search and interview process, Chef Suzanne Catering was selected to run the Café at the Prop and serve as a second catering option for programs and events. Suzanne Rockwell, owner of Chef Suzanne Catering, is excited to open the Café, provide delicious menu options, and meet members and guests. Throughout August, Suzanne will offer a “soft” menu as she evaluates the likes and dislikes of the Café clientele. The menu will change seasonally and will offer soups, salads and sandwiches with exquisite dessert options. Chef Su

Women's History Tea Focuses on Female Artists

The annual Propylaeum Women’s History Tea, held on July 20, was a great success. Members and guests, many wearing beautiful hats, enjoyed traditional afternoon tea sandwiches and treats while listening to professional storyteller Stephanie Holman share stories about pressures faced by early female artists. The stories included three Brown County female artists as well as former Propylaeum member and townhouse resident Ruth Pratt Bobbs. Sparkling wine and raffle items added to the afternoon fun. The Women’s History Tea is quickly becoming a favorite program among Propylaeum members and guests.

Here’s what is on the schedule for August and September: On August 9, we will meet at Newfields at 11:00 for a docent-led tour of the American galleries, focusing on women artists – a follow-up to the Women’s History Tea.
