The Clovernook Historical Committee is excited to present: Exhibition by Effie Corwin Trader. This accessible art exhibit will feature paintings created by the talented elder sister of our founders Florence and Georgia Trader. Alongside the paintings will be tactile models, as well as Braille, text and verbal descriptions. The Exhibition will be open to the public and kick off with a reception on Friday, May 18th, from 7-9pm in the Clovernook Center's Community Room.
Effie Trader was the eldest of the four Trader sisters, born in 1874. She studied under internationally renowned painter Frank Duveneck at the Cincinnati Art Academy for several years and was one of the early presidents of the Cincinnati Women’s Art Club. Her travels can be traced through her paintings: her time in Taos, New Mexico is reflected in her street scenes, her rocky seascapes can be pinpointed to Gloucester, Massachusetts, and her bright landscapes were the result of wintering in Florida. She also produced immaculate miniatures and portraits, several of which will be on display in the exhibition.
