SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS IN 2020
A PARTICULAR BEAUTY: ROMANIAN FOLK CLOTHING
through November 15, 2020
When she was Romania’s crown princess (1893–1914), Marie of Edinburgh (later Queen Marie of Romania) began wearing peasant-inspired clothing from the country’s eastern provinces — a fashion trend long promoted by Elisabeth of Wied, Queen of Romania, and her court. A Particular Beauty draws from Maryhill’s collection of more than 450 items of Romanian clothing and textiles. The display will include about 20 fully dressed mannequins, and numerous individual garments such as coats, vests, shirts and blouses.The exhibition will showcase a remarkable variety of Romanian embroidery techniques, mediums, and styles that have evolved through the influences of adjacent ethnic populations, resident invaders, other outsiders, and—in recent decades–urbanization. Contextual labels and photographs will tie the objects to specific villages, counties, geographical regions, and artisan workshops.

THANK YOU to our major exhibition sponsors Bill and Cathy Dickson, with support from the Romanian American Society (Portland) and the American Romanian Cultural Society (Seattle). Partners include Atlianta, Washington D.C., the American Romanian Cultural Society (ARCS) Seattle; the Romanian American Society (RAS) Portland; and, the Romanian Cultural Institute (CRCI) New York.
QUEEN MARIE OF ROMANIA: THE IRRESTIBLE AMBASSADOR OF ROMANIA

The exhibition has been presented at the National Museum of Cotroceni and National Museum of Bran, in an outside exhibition at the Sfatului Square from Brasov, Unirii Square from Oradea and Unirii Square from Rasnov. It was displayed at the second Annual Gala of Romanian Professionals Society in Philadelphia in March 2019, in Chicago for the Romanian Traditional Blouse Day festivities and most recently at the new Romanian Cultural Centre in St. Paul.
