Small Oils at the Philadelphia Sketch Club

"Montgomery Barn"
8x10 oil on board

This painting was accepted into the 146th Annual Exhibition of Small Oil Paintings at the Philadelphia Sketch Club. The show runs April 10 through May 2, 2009 at:

The Philadelphia Sketch Club
235 S. Camac Street
Philadelphia, Pa

Opening reception is Sunday, April 19 from 2 to 4 pm.

Although this is the 146th year of this annual juried show (isn't that amazing?!), it's the first time that I've entered. Needless to say, I'm very happy to have gotten in. I only recently became acquainted with the Sketch Club when I was invited to judge a show at the neighboring Plastic Club.

The Philly Sketch Club was founded in 1860 and is the oldest continuing artists organization in America. Many of America's great artists have been members or teachers at the club including Thomas Eakins, N.C. Wyeth, Edward Redfield, Maxfield Parrish, Daniel Garber, Ranulph Bye and Alexander Calder.

Normal gallery hours: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: 1 pm to 5 pm.
