Rally the Troops is a group show at Canal Frame-Crafts Gallery to benefit Washington Crossing State Park. For a special treat, George Washington and his troops will be standing guard at the opening - how cool is that!? That would be the group which reenacts the famous Washington Crossing the Delaware every Christmas.
This town on the river here was once called Bakers Ferry. When George Washington crossed the Delaware here in 1776, it was called McKonkeys Ferry. Sometime after that, it became Taylorsville - the buildings in my painting above are from that period. The town's name was changed again in 1918 to commemorate Washington crossing the Delaware here, and it's since been known as Washington Crossing, PA.
A portion of the sales made during this show will be donated to the Friends of Washington Crossing to be used exclusively for the Park. Besides the painting shown above, I'll have 2 other pieces in this show.
Show runs Feb 6 - March 6
Reception with George Washington and his troops:
Friday, Feb 12, 5 - 8pm & Saturday, Feb 13, 5 - 8pm
