In the Spirit of Tradition: The Studio Group
December 3, 2011 - January 15, 2012
|This exhibition will present a variety of works by members of The Studio Group, Inc., an association of artists founded in Wilmington in 1935. After first renting a part of the former Howard Pyle Studios from then owner Stanley Arthurs, an illustrator and student of Pyle’s, the Group was able to purchase the property in 1968. Howard Pyle had received international acclaim for his work as an illustrator, writer, teacher, and founder of the Brandywine tradition of art. The Studios were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. The Studio Group has remained faithful to its original goal of preserving an association of artists dedicated to perfecting their skills in a congenial and supportive atmosphere. This exhibition will include about 40 works of art, showcasing a selection of members’ styles, media, and subject matter. In the Spirit of Tradition: The Studio Group is part of the Delaware Art Museum’s Outlooks Exhibition Series, which encourages community involvement in the creation of exhibitions.|
