ART AFTER FIVE

SHAKER COLLECTION

WINNETKA RESIDENCE location

6:30-8:30pm

RSVP by September 20, 2017

Please join Art After Five coordinator and celebrated artist Linda Kramer for a visit to a private art collection featuring an exceptional collection of Shaker furniture. In the late 1700’s the Shakers began creating furniture and objects that aspired to spiritual perfection. The unadorned, functional style they created influenced the Arts and Crafts movement and the Danish Modern School. Jan and Tom Pavlovic have been collecting early Shaker furniture and decorative arts for the past forty years, and it now fills their home. Portions of the Pavlovic’s well respected collection have most recently been exhibited at Hancock Shaker Village, Loyola Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago, where it can be seen until December 3, 2017. You are cordially invited to visit this lovely home - to sit in the authentic Shaker rooms - and be inspired by the peace and simplicity that will surround you. 

 

The Art After Five program offers EAC members and their guests the rare opportunity to visit artist’s studios and to view private art collections in the home of some of the most distinguished collectors in the Chicago area. Reservations are required and space is limited.
