"A Joyful Tasha Tudor Christmas" Opening Day of Holiday Exhibit

Thursday, November 17, 2011 to Friday, December 30, 2011

Take the time this holiday season to visit the Historic Odessa Foundation’s Wilson Warner House c. 1769 that will be transformed into a magical exhibit with reference to the beloved children’s book illustrator Tasha Tudor.  With nearly 100 books to her credit, Tudor is known for her folksy watercolor illustrations of American rural life, children, animals, flowers, and Christmas.  Each room in the National Register House will be interpreted based on Tudor’s Vermont Christmas celebrations and illustrations.  The exhibit will include a large Victorian Christmas tree in the center of the parlor abundantly decorated with glass kugel ornaments, amazing cornucopias, and candle lights.  Other vignettes will feature her holiday preparations including her signature oversized gingerbread animal cookies, a suspended advent wreath in the dining room, Tudor inspired borders decorating some of the fireplace breasts, and a New England snow scene in the upper hall.  Step into the Christmas world of Tasha Tudor opening in November 2011.
