The James Michener Art Museum continues its tradition of studio visits with a special tour “of the only remaining intact studio from the Golden Age of Bucks County Art.. Located on a 34 acre farm in Bedminster, the views from the studio are virtually the same as when Ben Solowey arrived in 1936. The artist felt he saw a landscape to paint every time he looked out his studio window. “When you visit the studio of Ben Solowey, you do more than see an exhibition, you enter an artist’s world,” wrote Edward Sozanski, Philadelphia Inquirer Art Critic. “The charm of [the Studio] is its sense of intimacy and immediacy. Nothing is under glass or roped; rather, it conveys the uncanny feeling that Solowey has just stepped away from his easel and will be back any minute….you couldn’t imagine wanting to be anywhere else.” The Solowey Studio presents two interpretive exhibitions per year of the work of Solowey and his contemporaries. The recent Charles Ward show at the Michener began as a smaller exhibition at the Studio. On view in June will be a new exhibition of the work of contemporary painter Paul DuSold, and his selection of Solowey works.”
The tour runs 10 am – 12 pm. Fee: members $15/non-members $20. Space is limited. To reserve a place, click here.
The Studio will be open to its regular public hours that day from 1 to 5 pm.
