Trust the Process ExhibitionOpening Reception

Featuring works by: Adam Vinson, Alexandra Tyng, Bo Bartlett, Erin Anderson, Evan Kitson, Jenn Warpole, Martin Campos, Neilson Carlin, Patrick Lee, Randall Graham, Robert Wellings & Timothy Wilson

Ideas…sketches…scratches…notes…studies…marks…happy accidents…the process

Gallery 222 is divided into three galleries in one building.  The exhibit will have 'more finished & larger pieces' in the big gallery.  And smaller studies, sketches and process pieces in the smaller two galleries.  I designed it with three different thoughts in mind.

1) To show the audience how artists go from an idea to a finished piece.

2) Have a mix of traditional realist painters and painters that take realism in new directions.

3) To have affordable smaller works available for collectors that may love these artists, but not the means to purchase a large piece.

FREE Valley Forge Plein Air Classes

Announcing a this year's art program here at Valley Forge NHP in partnership with Chester County Art Association: Creative Space For Everyone

How it's going to work is the program will be led by myself and park rangers. There will be a brief overview of the history of the site we are visiting, and then we move into the creative art portion of the program.  Painting and drawing or photography will be encouraged. I will be there to help you regardless of your skill level in any art medium you decide to explore that day.  However, you have to provide your own art equipment.

 If you don't want any problem.  Come on out and paint. 

Dates, times, and locations are listed below.  If you have any questions on how to get to any of the locations, please ask. 

Here's the long awaited summer schedule! Please note that our sessions will be taking place on Saturday and Sunday. All dates and times are subject to change. Details with where to park and addresses will be posted as the date gets closer.
