Washington Society of Landscape Painters Exhibition
Aug 6, 2022
The Peninsula Gallery is pleased to welcome back the prestigious Washington Society of Landscape Painters for another juried exhibition. The show comprises 33 works from 24 artists, showcasing a range of artistic talent and skills. The juried works include both oil and watercolor paintings and depict a variety of landscapes — from street scenes to ocean waves, floral arrangements, and boating trips. Some of the works are presented with traditional techniques or are painted en plein air, while others take a more modernist or impressionistic approach. The show also includes some abstract pieces for those with a more contemporary eye. With such a range of images, this exhibition has something for every taste. The Washington Society of Landscape Painters is one of the oldest landscape painting groups in the United State, tracing traces its origins to 1913. The primary focus of the society today is painting outdoors en plein air with fellow members and guest artists, enjoying their camaraderie and constructively critiquing each other’s work. In addition to these paint-outs, the society also promotes the advancement of landscape painting through meetings, exhibitions, and field trips. The organization is now 109 years old. As in 1913, painting on location continues to be the foundation on which its activities are based. The artists juried into this exhibition include: Jill Banks, Jacalyn Beam, Jean Brinton-Jaecks, Lani Browning, Marietje Chamberlain, Bernard J Dellario, David Diaz, Gray Dodson, Christine Drewyer, Lisa Egeli, Lynn Goldstein, Pattee Hipschen, Harry L Jaecks, Barry D Lindley, Lynn Mehta, Crystal Moll, JoEllen Murphy, Barbara Nuss, Bill Schmidt, Jean Schwartz, Lida Stifel, Nancy Tankersley, Robert Thoren, and Meg Nottingham Walsh. The Washington Society of Landscape Painters exhibition will be on display from August 6th to the 28th. Works from the show can be previewed at www.peninsula-gallery.com and are available for pre-sale. A reception will be held on Saturday, August 6, from 5 to 6:30 pm, with some of the artists in attendance. Call (302) 645-0551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. The gallery is located in the Village Shoppes at the Beacon Inn, 520 East Savannah Rd. Lewes, DE, and is open Tue-Sat 10-5, and Sun 11-3. Venue: Peninsula Gallery.
