“Introductions” at the Chadds Ford Gallery

The "Introductions" show at the Chadds Ford Gallery was re-introduced

last Friday for those who missed the original opening because of the

snowstorm during the original opening in February. Featured were

Hispanic, African American, and Asian artists. Residents and artists

mingled, mused at the artwork while enjoying the hors d’oeuvres for

which the gallery openings are known.


The artwork colors and media were diverse. The bright colors of Omenihu

Amachi were inspired by the butterflies of his childhood in Nigeria. Tzu

Wen Kwok displayed stichery paintings on paper. Ching Lin’s art is

described as stitchery and painting on silk. An arresting papier maché

sculpture appeared to be climbing out of the wall. Abstract mixed media

was shown by James Newton. The exhibit open until Sunday March 28.


The member reception at the Brandywine River Museum was also held Friday

night for the new show "N. C. Wyeth and the Philadelphia Sketch Club"

which runs through May 23. The parking lot at the Museum and at the

Brandywine Prime were filled as people enjoyed art and repast. Downtown

Chadds Ford was buzzing.
