Holiday House Tour: Celebrating Timeless Classics
The theme for this year’s tour – Celebrating Timeless Classics – started as just an idea; we didn’t have any houses. We wanted to enlist local builders and architects to help choose beautiful homes, but we didn’t know what we’d discover. Now, after visits to these homes ourselves, we realize that we are lucky to be invited into the new grand homes of the Brandywine Valley. The residences have been built for today’s style of living – gracious, relaxed, family oriented – and will surely stand the test of time. Thank you to our presenting sponsors, Dewson Construction, Period Architecture and Porter Construction who identified...

Meet the Artist: Intimate Visions
Get inspired! Learn about the creative process from the artists of our latest Outlooks show, Intimate Visions: Paintings on Paper featuring David Hornung, Constance Moore Simon, Žaneta Zubkova. About the Exhibition The intimate vision of each artist—a mingling of reality and invention—blends the natural world with abstract shapes. Whether in luminous or subdued colors, these forms conjure up a cityscape or countryside. Patterns may suggest solid objects or floating fragments. The small scale of the works draw us into the vision for a closer look. Learn more.
