Celebration of Art in School


Last week, I was honored to be invited to show my work along with the works of Walter E. Baum (1884-1956), Melville Stark (1904-1987, a student of Baum's) and two sculptors. The exhibition was held at the Perkiomen School, an independent college preparatory boarding and day school located in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania in partnership with the James A. Michener Art Museum. The purpose of the exhibition was to celebrate art in schools, following Baum's personal mission to ensure that art had place in schools. Baum's works were exhibited in Carnegie Library on the Perkiomen School campus seventy years ago and a half dozen or so of his works remain in the school's collection. The opening reception was held on Friday evening and I thank all of you that came out in support of the continuation of Baum's mission.

Additionally, I was delighted to do a lecture / demonstration on Tuesday evening during which I discussed the techniques of drybrush as well as other aspects of life as an artist. The demonstration was well-attended and I thank all those who came out and especially those who actively participated with questions and comments.

Katy also did a lecture / demonstration last week, hers being at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. 

Looking ahead, we are both hoping to spend some quality time in the studio now that the temperatures are cooling down and outdoor work is slowing down.

Always remember that the Hendershot & Krieg Studio in Hoppenville is open to the public by appointment; feel free to check in with an e-mail or phone call and stop by to see what's happening!

Until next time...
