The list of benefits is lengthy and these opportunities are available to individuals who want to make a difference. Participation as a volunteer can be in person, by phone, or via the internet.

MARIAN BRADSHAW

In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marian Hahn Bradshaw this past October 2018. A founding member of the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts in 1981, Marian was a collector, teacher and enthusiastic ambassador of all forms of decorative arts.

Marian’s love of the decorative arts had familial roots. Her father was a notable collector of Chinese lacquer, now displayed in the Royal Ontario Museum Galleries. While her range of interest was broad, she had a particular devotion to her home of Canada and its art. Her efforts brought Canadiana into main stream decorative arts.

Under Marian’s guidance Ornamentum magazine was brought to the public sphere, which the CSDA/CCAD has published for twelve years.

We are thankful for Marian’s sharing her passion for the decorative arts with us and leaving such a lasting legacy.
