Opening Reception – Drawing on the Susquehanna: Four Centuries of Artistic Inspiration and Commerce
August 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmAdmission By Donation
This special exhibit curated by artist Rob Evans includes over 60 works and examines the influence of the Susquehanna River as an artistic muse and commercial driver for prominent American artists. These artists worked in a diverse range of media often experimenting with some of the newest technologies of the day including wood, copper and steel engravings; hand colored lithographs and chromolithographs; etchings; transfer decorated china; and paintings and drawings. Drawing on the Susquehanna presents a unique portrait of a single subject over four centuries, documenting, through the eyes of artists, the River’s many moods and manifestations, as well as the progression of human habitation and development along its shores.
