Local historian and entertainer Laurie Nienhaus will present “The Victorian Fairy Painting Tea” at 1 p.m. April 11 at the last tea party of the season at the Burroughs Home and Gardens in Fort Myers.
The presentation will feature quality reprints of the great fairy paintings of the Victorian era, a release on the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce website said. Guests can enjoy the scenic gardens from the dancing porch and learn about the unique characteristics associated with this genre of art. A light tea fit for the afternoon will be served.
“The fairies in these works are not always as sweet – not as innocent – as one might imagine," Nienhaus said in the release.
The price for this interactive program is $26. Reservations are required as seating is limited. Call 239-337-9505 or email Tera@Burroughshome.com.
