Every year, the Taber Museum presents to the community a holiday exhibit, that features a display of winter, Christmas or other seasonal memorabilia. The 2020 display features an extensive collection of quilts, silver and jade.
A ‘Holiday Jewel Box At a County Gem: Quilts, Silver and Jade at the Taber’ is the theme of this year’s holiday display at the Museum. The exhibit opened on Friday, December 4, with a member preview from 6:00-7:00 pm and for the public from 7-8:30pm. As in past years, the preview also featured local artisans, who displayed and sold Christmas ornaments and other holiday themed creations.
The Community Room of the museum shone and sparkled with the shimmering beauty of silver, the exotic splendor of jade, and the remarkably intricate blending of fabric and lace in Wendy Etzel’s award-winning quilts. The quilts feature depictions of some of the homes on Millionaires’ Row as well as quilts that embrace the Christmas and winter celebrations, many of them incorporating the traditional colors of red and green.
The opening served as a fundraiser for the Museum as a portion of every sale was donated to support the Museum's programing.
The exhibit runs through January 16, 2021, although the Museum is closed to the public until January 4, as a result of the Governor's order.
