The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is hosting a Fall Members’ Reception and Book Launch for the new edition of Gustav Stickley’s Craftsman Farms: A Pictorial History, on Saturday, October 24, 4:00 p.m.
This edition was funded by a special project grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission. The book was edited by the noted Stickley scholar, David Cathers, and contains historic photographs, plus commentary reprinted from Stickley’s own magazine, The Craftsman. Numerous experts on Gustav Stickley and the Arts and Crafts movement have contributed original essays. This edition also features an entirely new essay by Mark Alan Hewitt which sets the history of Craftsman Farms in the context of New Jersey history and a new essay by Dr. Robert Winter which sets the history of the Farms in the broader context of U.S. history.
The reception will also feature a special lecture by Pat Bartinique who will speak on The Story in a New Voice: Music and the Arts and Crafts Movement. Light refreshments will be served and tours of the Log House will be available.
Museum Members are free with RSVP. Non-members ticket price is $12. Please call 973-540-0311 for reservations or further information
