Civil War Lecture Series: 19th-century Naval Ordnance External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
When Brigadier General Henri Paixhans introduced his concepts of ship-mounted shell guns, he virtually ended the rule of the sea by wooden ships of the line. Paixhans and others like John A.B. Dahlgren, developed guns that could fire explosive shells which tore rugged holes in vessels, send shrapnel and sparks across the decks, causing a wooden warship to burn. The introduction of shell guns and rifled guns to naval warfare prompted the development of ironclads which changed naval warfare forevermore. Technology now rules the waves.

Last year, with the approval of town government and safety officials, we were able to add significantly more space by temporarily closing the adjacent portion of Sullivan Avenue during the event. It made for an even better event; and we’ve received permission to do that again! Featured craft brewers will include: Battle Road Brewing, Berkley Beer Company, Bog Iron Brewing, Castle Island Brewing, Clown Shoes Beer, Downeast Cider House, Exhibit A Brewing Company, Jack's Abby Craft Lagers, Lord Hobo Brewing Company, Revival Brewing, Shovel Town Brewery, Stony Creek Brewery, Switchback Brewing Company, Wachusett Brewing Company and Wormtown Brewery.

As well, there will be complimentary snacks from North Easton Savings Bank and Bank of Easton.

They both have the incredible ability to convey the feeling of a larger canvass in miniature. Produced by David J. Wagner, Ph. D. Curator/Tour Director. ////// We are expecting many groups for this exhibit, so please call in advance to schedule groups of 5 or more.

Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montez External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
The Stauth Museum will be hosting two very special exhibitions over the summer. They are vastly different in technique, content, and scope of work yet they are similar in the astonishing detail, complexity, and extraordinary skill needed to create each work of art. ////// Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montes -- Jessie, a western Kansas folk artist, creates his artwork from corrugated paperboard (cardboard). With no formal education, no schooling in art, and no previous history of art-making, Mr. Montes created complex visual statements with simple materials. Looking for a way to relax after his son and daughter were called to duty in the Persian Gulf War, he started cutting cardboard and experimented with different designs and themes on frames for their pictures. Soon he began to fill in the frames with landscapes, designs and portraits. 3-dimensional sculptures came soon after that and his artistic career in this unique medium was launched. Using only modest tools of cardboard cut in 1/4 strips, tweezers, a sharp razor blade and paste, his subject matter includes a mixture of ethnic and social influences, architectural themes, and popular culture. Jessie Montes (1935-2013) ////// We are expecting many groups for this exhibit, so please call in advance to schedule groups of 5 or more. Tours/groups welcome by appointment, contact 620-846-2527 for information or to set up a tour. Museum hours: Tue -Sat 9-12 1-4:30, Sun 1:30-4:30.
