Past Meeting

At our public meeting on Sunday, October 18, 2009 the featured presentation was:


Wharton Esherick Studio and Museum

by Paul Eisenhauer

Wharton Esherick (1887-1970) was among the vanguard of artists who created an American sculpture style early in the 20th century. Working primarily in wood, he extended his sculptural forms to furniture, furnishings and interiors. A fine example of this work is now in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Equally important his studio, located nearby, is now a National Historic Landmark for Architecture.

Director Paul Eisenhauer presented a slide show and talk about this remarkable artist, and invited the attendees to visit the museum after the presentation.

More information about Wharton Esherick is available at the Wharton Esherick Museum web site and here.
