Artist of the Month

Artist of the Month: Edwina BrennanBrennan Aug 01

Edwina Brennan presents Kaleidoscope, her latest paintings in the Fireside Room from September 11 to October 16. Brennan's abstract paintings and drawings are known throughout the Philadelphia area for their evocative color, strong and subtle markings, and emotional power. Highly energetic, her work has been strongly influenced by Cy Twombly and Joan Mitchell. Brennan studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and progressed from landscape painting to her abstract style. Her work is in many collections including Bryn Mawr College and the Berman Museum.

"I start with a mark, simple and straighforward, but then there is another, a spotch of color, and some scraping. The tools are uncomplicated but as in any interaction it is the relationship where the intricacy begins,” she says.

A reception to meet the artist will be held September 25, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. All are invited.

Fireside Room Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Mon-Fri;  9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Sunday
