Party Celebrates Wirtshafter Exhibit at RHS

Ridge Historical Society (RHS) is so thrilled with its exhibit of works by the late Ethel Wirtshafter featuring her fabulous batiks, they’re putting on a party to draw neighbors in to see it!  On Fri., Feb. 8, 1 to 3 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., the doors will be thrown open and all welcomed. 
If you appreciate history, color and design, this exhibit is a must-see,” said RHS Historian Linda Lamberty.  Ethel spent more than half her near century of life here, where she was for over 45 years a prized and beloved teacher to countless children at the John H. Vanderpoel Art Association at Ridge Park Field House. 
The exhibit – a rare opportunity to see so many of Wirtshafter’s exquisite works gathered together – runs through Feb. 24 at RHS, 10621 S. Seeley. Art lovers who can’t make the Feb. 8 party can call 773-881-1675 or write ridgehistory@hotmail.com to schedule a tour.
