Celebrate Spring with a Cascarones Workshop

Saturday, March 23 | 11:00 am | FREE

Artist Marta Sanchez brings the Mexican tradition of Cascarones to Woodmere to celebrate the arrival of spring. Like an Easter egg, cascarones are decorative eggs that are used during festive times and celebrations. Children will decorate eggshells filled with confetti with paint, markers, and glitter to create their own Cascarones. Bring them home and enjoy the fun tradition of cracking the eggs over others' heads, a tradition that believes that as the confetti spills out from the eggshells, the cascarones will bring good luck.

Church Of The Advocate Murals Tour

Saturday, April 21, 2024 I 2:00 - 3:30 pm | FREE

Meet at Church of the Advocate, 1801 W. Diamond Street

In conjunction with the display of Walter Edmonds painting, Sold Into Bondage, Woodmere is organizing a special tour of the monumental murals at Church of the Advocate, an historic and socially active church at the center of Philadelphia's black community. The murals, created by artists Walter Edmonds (1938-2011) and Richard Watson (b. 1948),  were commissioned by the Reverend Paul M. Washington and depict biblical scenes through the lens of Black history. Created between 1973-1976, the artists were inspired by specific biblical passages, their connection to the challenging social conditions of the 1970s, and the history of American slavery.

The church is located at 18th and Diamond Streets. The entrance is accessible via a concrete ramp at the church's entrance adjacent to the parish hall at 2121 N. Gratz St. 

No one should arrive earlier than 1:45 pm to allow for maintenance staff to rearrange chairs after the worship service and set up any necessary audio equipment.

Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 2:00 pm

Join Ruth Fine in a presentation on the early ceramic sculpture of William Daley on exhibit in Woodmere's exhibition, Drawn From Earth: Figurative Sculpture and Works on Paper by William Daley.  Fine will offer insight on Daley’s life and influences and his figurative works of the 1960s, a period of work that is less well-known than his later large-scale vessels. She will show how the exploration of the human figure was an essential component of his creative vision that would evolve over the next fifty years.  Fine is the author of William Daley: Ceramic Artist.
