OGDENSBURG — The Frederic Remington Art Museum, 303 Washington St., continues its annual “Art Highlights & Tea” lecture series on Wednesday, Feb. 12 with a presentation by Roger Bailey entitled, “‘Let the Snobs Sneer’: Remington in the Canton Free Library Scrapbooks.”

There are more than forty scrapbooks filled with newspaper clippings in the Canton Free Library. Roger Bailey, retired art professor from St. Lawrence University, has collected some of the scrapbook materials related to Frederic Remington and the Remington Museum.

Bailey’s presentation will focus on items published in the Watertown Daily Times in the 1980s and will touch upon a range of topics that emerged from his exploration of the scrapbooks.

The talk, free and open to the public, will take place at 2 p.m. in the Museum’s Tiffany Room.

After the presentation, at 3 p.m., tea will be served in the parlors, courtesy of Glory Martel, Barbara Dunn, and friends.

The cost is $10 for museum members and $15 for non-members. Call 315-393-2425, email [email protected], or reserve seats at the tea online at fredericremington.org.
