PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS AT THE BRONSON CHURCH, 1712 Main St.
This program, presented by Kathleen Weischauss-Voss of the Canton Museum of Art, is about the artist, his times and the history of Summit and Stark counties showing farming, homes and gardens and transportation modes. Born in Switzerland in 1833, Brader traveled through northeast Ohio and was paid for his drawings with food and accommodations.
Brader’s first pencil drawings of farms and homes were made in Pennsylvania and dated 1879. The majority of Brader’s drawings were done in Ohio, first appearing in Tuscarawas and Columbiana Counties in 1884. Brader’s Ohio works were done in 9 adjoining counties: Portage, Medina, Wayne, Stark, Summit, Caroll, Columbiana, Mahoning and Tuscarawas continuing through 1895. This program is co-sponsored by the Peninsula Library and the Peninsula Foundation. Please call the library to reserve a seat. Refreshments will be served.
