Petrik Gallery

Joyce Anderson has been collecting fine Czech pieces for a lifetime, and the NCSML is the fortunate recipient of many stunning examples of glass and porcelain. The exhibit will feature exquisite Moser vases, enameled oak leaves and insects, and glass jewels. Amphora pottery with arts and crafts motifs will also be on display. Royal Dux porcelain, formed into intricate figures and whimsical animals, is a major element of the collection. Perfume bottles, vanity glass, animal figurines, and wine sets round out the exhibit. Visitors will also have the opportunity to see video footage of work at various Czech glass houses, and will gain an understanding of how sand and clay are almost magically manipulated to become works of art.

    Our College Township 4-H clubs had a square dance group led by Joyce Anderson. We practiced in her basement and performed a few times.
