Relief Prints by Leslie Peebles
July 21, 2019-January 12, 2020
Leslie Peebles is an ardent environmentalist and naturalist who connects her audience to the flora and fauna of Florida. Our state’s vanishing wilderness, from the Everglades to Okefenokee Swamp, has become a big source of inspiration for Leslie’s work. Her primary medium is printmaking; wood-cut and lino-cut relief print, letterpress and collagraph.

American Impressionism Through the French Lens
November 2, 2019-January 5, 2020
Drawn mostly from the collection of the Reading Public Museum, this exhibition explores the path to Impressionism through the 19th century in France. The show examines the sometimes complex relationship between French Impressionism of the 1870s and 80s and the American interpretation of the style in the decades that followed.
More than 65 paintings and works on paper help tell the story of the “new style” of painting which developed at the end of the 19th century—one that emphasized light and atmospheric conditions, rapid or loose brushstrokes, and a focus on brightly colored scenes from everyday life, including both urban and rural settings.
