Exhibit: Historic Fans by Lynn McMasters
Saturday, January 6, 2018
Known for her historic millinery, Lynn McMasters also designs historic fans, creates fan kits, and teaches fan-making classes. She uses both low-tech and high-tech materials and methods, from watercolors to large format-printers, from a glue brush to a drill press, or from crystals to stand-offs. The fans reflect styles that would have been used in the 17th thru the early 20th century. Many were inspired by period fans in the digital collections of major museums in the US and beyond.
