A Day of Art in Bucks County
We start our day with an artist-led tour at the spectacular home and studio of photographer, Paul Grand. Following a professional career in private industry, this master of abstraction began an odyssey in photography, creating images that focus on rich color, jarring contrasts and architectural renderings. His heroes include Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, and Milton Avery. His work has been recognized in museums and galleries as well as on radio, tv and print. A leisurely buffet lunch will follow at Chambers19 in the heart of Doylestown. In the afternoon, we will visit the James A. Michener Art Museum where we will have a docent-led tour highlighting Magic and Real, the first major retrospective of the works of Henrietta Wyeth and Peter Hurd. Henrietta was the oldest child of N. C. Wyeth and Peter was one of his students. This married couple has close ties to Pennsylvania and New Mexico. The exhibition broadens our awareness of the entire scope of their work in the regions with which they are most closely associated.
