Coffee Break: Artist Talks | Martha Gyllenhaal, AJS Juror

December 8, 2018 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Our Coffee Break series pairs coffee and bagels with an artist talk. Learn more about the exhibiting artists’ process and technique through a talk and Q&A in our gallery with the artists themselves.

This month’s Coffee Break, our juror from the 2018 Annual Juried Show will speak about her process in choosing and curating the work displayed in our galleries for this exhibition.

Speaker: Martha Gyllenhaal

Martha Gyllenhaal

Dr. Gyllenhaal, head of the Fine Arts Area, is an art historian and painter who integrates humanities and the fine arts in her teaching. She enjoys using the art collections in Glencairn Museum to enhance her classes. One of her courses, Topics in Twentieth-Century Architecture: Bryn Athyn’s National Historic Landmarks, meets on site and examines the process it took to build Bryn Athyn Cathedral, Glencairn Museum, and the Cairnwood and Cairncrest estates. She has lived and traveled extensively in Europe and encourages her students to plan their own grand tours. Her passion is 17th century Dutch art. Her research focuses on the studio practices and working methods of Rembrandt and the artists in his circle.

Martha is speaking as part of our Annual Juried Show 2018, on view from November 9 – January 4.


Our Coffee Breaks are sponsored in part by the Jenkinstown Lyceum
