Lace: Works of Adornment – July 13 to December 3, 2017

A selection from the WMQFA Collection of Lois Markus Lace will make its public debut at the Museum this summer. The exhibition will feature exquisite examples of garment lace. From cuff to collar, lace was frequently used to embellish clothing in a variety of fashions. Lace: Works of Adornment is a window into a time when owning and wearing a piece of well-crafted lace spoke volumes about the wearer without ever saying a word.
