Lancaster, PAThe Demuth Museum’s annual
Invitational exhibition showcases the work of contemporary artists from
Lancaster and
the surrounding region who have been invited to exhibit new works based on a
theme inspired by the art of Charles Demuth (1883-1935).
This year’s
exhibition takes its theme from Charles Demuth’s intense interest in vaudeville
performances and circus performers. Demuth created imaginative watercolor works
inspired by the vaudeville performances he would see right here in Lancaster at the Colonial
Theater, Capitol Theater and Hippodrome Theater on North Queen Street.
On view 6 February though 28 February, 2010.
