On Location: Artists at Brandywine
Continuing the rich tradition of working outdoors in the landscape, Signature member artists from the Philadelphia Water Color Society will create work at the Brandywine River Museum of Art and its three historic properties. Visitors are invited to watch 19 artists from the Philadelphia Water Color Society at work en plein air by purchasing an “On Location” ticket. Each roundtrip via museum shuttle includes stops at the Kuerner Farm, N. C. Wyeth House, and Andrew Wyeth Studio. The 1 hour and 15 minute trips begin at 10, 10:45 and 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Outdoor access only is provided; for guided tours of site interiors guests should purchase regular tour tickets at available times. In case of inclement weather, artists will set up in protected areas (such as porches) for viewing.
Work created during the event will be available for purchase at the Chadds Ford Historical Society, beginning with a reception on Friday, August 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. and continuing through September 22. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Brandywine River Museum of Art.
