Bits & Pieces for Aug. 19

• The Brandywine River Museum will feature the work of 22
contemporary trompe l'oeil artists
from across the country in Reality Check: Contemporary American Trompe l'Oeil,
on view from Sept. 11 through Nov. 18. Ranging from the personal to the
universal, the themes and subjects include pop culture, nostalgia, surrealism,
irony, nature, and homages to artists of the past. A French term meaning
"fool the eye," trompe l'oeil
describes art that tricks viewers into thinking they are looking at actual
objects rather than representations of them. Part of a long tradition of
illusionism dating to antiquity, trompe
popular appeal has endured through the centuries.
