“Delaware River Views by the Pennsylvania Impressionists”
“Delaware River Views by the Pennsylvania Impressionists” is the title of an illustrated talk on Monday April 10 at 7 PM in the Pittore Justice Center in Lambertville, NJ. The speaker is art historian Tom Folk, author of Pennsylvania Impressionists and the leading authority on the subject. This distinctively American school of Impressionist landscape painting focused on preserving views of the Delaware River. Starting in1898, painters settled along the river and the canal from New Hope to Point Pleasant. The river towns and landscapes — some views have changed while others have not — are featured in many of the best known works of this school. The paintings of Edward Redfield, Daniel Garber, Charles Rosen and many others will be discussed.
Dr. Tom Folk is regarded as the leading authority on the Pennsylvania Impressionists. He published the first book on this subject in 1997 and has organized more than a dozen museum exhibitions of paintings by the New Hope Impressionists. He is currently working on the definitive catalogue of the works of Edward Redfield, the leading painter of this group. Folk was formerly curator at the James Michener Museum in Doylestown. He has also published many articles on American ceramics. He is on the Education Committee of the Appraisers Association of America, and teaches at New York University.
Metered parking is available at the Pittore Center, located at 25 South Union Street, Lambertville, NJ and along adjacent streets.
The talk is one in a series presented by the Delaware River Greenway Partnership on different aspects of the cultural and natural history of the Delaware River. The series is open to the public free of charge. “Trenton—A Forgotten Port Community” will be the subject of a lecture by noted archaeologist Richard Hunter on May 22. Two more talks are planned for fall 2017.
The Delaware River Greenway Partnership, (DRGP), is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 that works to bring individuals, communities, businesses, recreational users, and all levels of government together to promote and protect a continuous corridor of natural and cultural resources along the Delaware River and its tributaries.
