summer bliss

There are so many things to be excited about for the upcoming summer season that we truly don’t know where to start.First off, let me say that we love the summer months regardless. We love hearing about what’s happening in all the summer art destinations up and down the coast, from Maine down to the Carolinas. Auctions, museum exhibitions, art fairs, gallery shows. Our summer agenda is already filling up so quickly!Of course, what we are most excited about is all the N.C. Wyeth events happening this summer beginning with the much-awaited retrospective at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in May.

beauty into art

Hardcover 2-volume set with slipcase1056 pages637 color illustrations$300.00Best known for his interiors and landscapes featuring beautiful women in artful poses and subtly related color harmonies, Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851–1938) lived and worked at the forefront of developments in modern American art.
