Two Art Lectures.
The Greenfield Arts and Crafts Society has arranged for a lecture by Henry
T. Bailey, the clever art authority who was formerly an agent of the State Board
of Education and who now is the editor of a school art magazine. Mr. Bailey
will take for his subject "Intelligent craftsmanship." He will discuss the principles
that go to make up good designing. This lecture will interest not merely the
people who are working at those crafts, but the much larger class who would
like to know what constitutes good designing so that they may form intelligent
opinions as to the merits of articles of home adornment. This lecture is to
be delivered Monday, April 3, probably at High school hall.
Will Hutchins, the Deerfield artist, is also to talk about "Life and art,"
Wednesday, March 27. The Arts and Crafts Society has shown no little public
spirit in its effort to extend the knowledge of handicraft, and it deserves
the most liberal patronage.
Both these lectures are put at 4.15 p.m. to accommodate the teachers. Mr. Hutchins's
subject is one upon which he is later to speak in Boston before the Metaphysical
Club. Tickets can be had of members and at Forbes' store.
