On Monday this week Bob and I drove up to the Wilmington area of Delaware to a town called Greenville to bring some of my paintings up to the Station Gallery. Four of my paintings will be included in their summer exhibit of new artists: Summer, Verona; Laundry Day, Puglia, Weathered Red Barn; and Red Barn, Bombay Hook. The exhibit goes up July 3 and will be up in the gallery July and August. I'm very excited about the opportunity to show my work in this well-respected gallery.
The Station Gallery opened in 1979 to present works by regional artists and offer museum quality framing to the Delaware Valley. They offer a wide range of original art in oil, pastel, photography, watercolor and mixed media with a variety of subjects from abstracts and landscapes to still lifes.
They represent some of the finest artists in the area, including my friend Denise Dumont, Louise Clearfield, Michele Greene, just to name a few. Currently they are showing the work of Lynne Lockhart and Kirk McBride through June 30.
The Station Gallery also offers museum-qualty framing and is recommended by Winterthur Museum for their exclusive use of archival materials.
It's about an hour's drive to Greenville, Delaware from Milford. With so much to do in the Brandywine area, it's well worth a day trip! Make it a day filled with art - go to the Station Gallery, visit the Delaware Art Museum, and the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art. Or convene with nature at Longwood, Winterthur or Nemours.
Whatever you decide to do, Delaware may be a small state, but north or south, there's so many interesting things to do and see, we're happy to be right in the middle of it all!
