The Woodmere Art Museum’s new exhibit features the works of landscape painter John Folinsbee. John Folinsbee and American Modernism, on display from through March 6, 2011, reveals the New Hope painter’s contributions to the development of modern art in America.
Visitors will experience Folinsbee’s paintings portraying the Buck’s County iconic region as it has rarely been presented. Instead of focusing on the traditional pastoral views of the Delaware River, Folinsbee choose to paint the mills, factories, barns and steel-truss bridges that lined its banks.
John Folinsbee and American Modernism offers museum patrons the opportunity to experience both the new direction of the Woodmere Art Museum and a chance to see the recent renovation of the Museum’s grand Kuch Gallery, the rotunda-like space that houses the Folinsbee exhibition. The Woodmere Art Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10am-5pm and Sunday, 1pm-5pm. Admission to special exhibitions is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, and free for students and children.
