Calendar of Events

Wednesday February 21st, 2018, 3:00pm
Members-only Visit to the British Galleries Conservation Workshop
at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Meet at the information desk in the Great Hall

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has embarked on an ambitious renovation project, in which 10 galleries, including three historic interiors, devoted to British decorative arts and sculpture of the early 16th through 19th century will be reimagined and reinstalled. The galleries closed in fall 2016 for approximately two years. When they reopen, they will present British art and design from a fresh perspective, exploring creativity in Britain’s extraordinarily entrepreneurial society. Brilliant at creating new markets where none existed, endlessly resourceful in the development of new materials and technologies, and inventive in their adaptation of stylistic models from across Europe and Asia, British artists, traders and patrons continually broke new ground.

This is an AFGG members-only event. Attendance will be limited to 15.

Cold Spring Harbor
House Tour

AFGG will begin this year’s tour of classic Long Island neo-Georgian Country Houses in Cold Spring Harbor with two wonderful examples by Mott B. Schmidt. These have spectacular views of the Long Island Sound and the classic restraint of Schmidt’s architecture. We will also visit Groton Place in nearby Old Westbury, by Henry Renwick Sedgwick and with grounds by Innocenti and Webel, the embodiment of what the Long Island Country House should be—sweeping vistas, impressive barn complex, relaxed elegance at its best.
Luncheon will be included on this special day trip.

Cost: $195
