A lecture on “Women in Art & Women Artists” will be presented by the Speakers Bureau of the Newark Museum at the Summit Library on May 18 at 7:30 p.m.

This slide presentation looks at the way women were portrayed in art from Egyptian times up until the Gilded Age, when art was mostly created by men. It then follows the rise of women artists, using examples of their work from the museum’s collections.

The Somerville Library has several walls they like to fill with artists’ works. They display the works of one artist at a time for a minimum of one month. Works need to be ready to hang from the library’s suspended hooks.

If you are looking for display space or know someone who is, please contact Mona-Paulina Mahaga-Ajala, program coordinator of adult services of the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey, Somerville Library branch, 35 West End Avenue, Somerville, NJ.

Email her at  mpmahaga@sclibnj.org or call 908-725-1336, ext. 16.
