Art of Tablesettings

The Congo CafeOctober 9th through November 6, 2016
This annual exhibit has transformed into a display far beyond anything Ruth West could have imaged when she introduced
the first Tablesetting Exhibit at the Rahr-West Art Museum
more than 30 years ago.

Originally, this exhibit featured traditional tablesettings of fine china and crystal, but over the years it has taken on a life of
its own. It’s not unusual to find tin plates or coconut shells
in place of china and crystal, the bench of a canoe or a picnic blanket used as the table, and settings such as a frontier
wagon, a jail cell, or a sandy beach.

Please visit us at the Rahr-West Art Museum and enjoy this
annual event. Each year brings new and intriguing designs,
and we are sure this year will be no exception.
