A Christmas Experience that you will never forget!

Thanksgiving evening is the beginning of the Christmas holiday season at the Shriver House Museum. The Shriver family moved into their new home just before the Christmas of 1860. In anticipation of showing off their beautiful new home to family and friends, their house is fully decorated for a mid-19th century Christmas gathering.

Come hear how very different each of the five Christmases they spent in their home were affected by the Civil War. One of the wealthiest families in Gettysburg at the time, the first holiday George and Hettie, along with their two daughters, Sadie (5) and Mollie (3), celebrated in their new home was one full of joy and delight. Just four months later the Civil War began. The country was in turmoil and George Shriver was fighting with Cole’s Cavalry which made it a challenge for Hettie Shriver to celebrate the following holidays with her girls while their father was away.

The 4’ tall candle-laden Christmas tree sits in the middle of the handsome parlor decorated with holiday greenery. After hanging their stockings on the mantle, Sadie and Mollie set out springerle cookies in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus on that magical night. The smell of pine and popcorn fills the house bringing memories of Christmases past.

Join The Trout Gallery for a Family Night of art! We’ll be celebrating the drawings submitted to The Trout Gallery as part of our “Splash of Red” contest.

Born in Pennsylvania, celebrated artist Horace Pippin is known for his paintings depicting the everyday lives of African Americans, his experiences serving in World War I, and stories from the Bible. When he was a boy, Pippin loved to draw. He saw an ad for a drawing contest and entered, winning first prize: a set of artist’s supplies. Even though Horace never took art classes, he taught himself to paint prize-winning pictures. He said that he painted the world exactly as he saw it. If you look closely at Pippin’s pictures, you’ll always find a bit of red somewhere. Pippin believed that everything needs a splash of red!

In honor of Horace Pippin, we invite you to create a drawing or painting with a splash of red. You can paint whatever you like, just be sure it represents things as you see them and has red color somewhere in the picture. The first twenty-five people to submit a work of art will win a set of artist’s supplies, just like Pippin. Prizes will be distributed during this special Family Night, November 18th, featuring food and drink, art activities, and tours of the exhibition, Horace Pippin: Racism and War.

Buzz Jones will be offering a lecture/discussion for the Adams County Arts Council 3rd Thursday Series. Stop by and learn some interesting facts about Jazz!

Note: Please bring your own lunch.
