We hope you can join us for these upcoming events!

Field Trip to the Brandywine River Museum

When: Friday, July 12, 2019, 9:30-2:00

Where: Brandywine River Museum of Art, 1 Hoffman’s Mill Road, Chadds Ford, PA 19317 (https://www.brandywine.org/museum)

On Friday, July 12, please join us in Chadds Ford, PA, for a day immersed in the art and environment of N. C. Wyeth! We’ll meet at 9:30 a.m. and enjoy light refreshments in the Millstone Café at the Brandywine River Museum of Art. The Brandywine River Museum of Art is renowned for its holdings of the Wyeth family of artists, along with the Museum’s outstanding Heritage Collection, a cross section of American art with notable works by N. C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle and his students, and other illustrators from the Golden Age of American illustration to the present.

We’ll have an opportunity to view within a guided tour, “N. C. Wyeth: New Perspectives,” the first major compilation of N. C. Wyeth’s art in almost 50 years. The exhibition will include approximately 70 paintings and drawings, including many of his bold, imaginative illustrations for classic stories such as Treasure Island and The Boy’s King Arthur.  https://www.brandywine.org/museum/exhibitions/n-c-wyeth-new-perspectives

A shuttle bus will then take us to N. C. Wyeth’s House & Studio where a second tour guide will welcome us. In 1911, with the proceeds from his illustrations for Treasure Island, N.C. Wyeth purchased 18 acres of land in the village of Chadds Ford. Here he set down roots which have nourished a family of extraordinary creativity for more than a century. The property is a National Historic Landmark.  https://www.brandywine.org/museum/studios/nc-wyeth-house-studio

Illustrators may chose to gather for lunch in the Museum’s Millstone Cafe** https://www.brandywine.org/museum/visit/dining. Attendees can revisit the museum’s exhibitions or sketch together on the beautiful grounds or inside the museum, before heading home. This promises to be an illuminating and inspiring day!

Please register by Monday, July 1. Registration includes parking, admission to the Museum and the N. C. Wyeth exhibition, guided tours, and a shuttle between the Museum and N. C. Wyeth’s house and studio.**

    Adam Lehrhaupt made us laugh with his entertaining monkey book, Do Not Open This Book.

    Bryan Collier demonstrated that hard work and determination pays off and his artwork was nothing short of inspiring. For 7 years, he hit the pavement until one day, someone said YES.

    Debbie Dadey taught us that a ‘no’ means you get back to the keyboard or the canvas and KEEP going.

    Linda Oatman High made us excited to be a writer and/or illustrator. Stories exist in even the smallest picture.

    And that was just Saturday morning!
