She was responsible for the exhibitions in the museum's Treasure Room gallery, annual display of the museum's Eighteenth Century Neapolitan Presepio, one the best examples of its kind outside of Italy.

Press & Reviews

The juried "CraftForms 2011" at Wayne Art Center dazzles with ceramics, wood, fiber, metal . . .

In some ways, it's inescapable. For, amid the routines of daily life, we furnish our homes with craft items of some sort - also our business surroundings, and even our vacation spots - with these handmade or mass-produced craft objects.
