Monday, July 21, 2014
I have a watercolor painting, "USS Olympia" included in the group show at the Athenaeum of Philadelphia. The show is entitled "2014 Celebration of the Athenaeum of Philadelphia's 200th Anniversary Art Exhibition" and runs from June 29 to August 8, 2014. The Athenaeum is a spectacular historic space and the show features paintings by various artists of buildings and monuments in Philadelphia that are on the National Historical Register. More on the show can be seen at http://www.philaathenaeum.org/current.html.
The subject of my painting, the USS Olympia, is currently docked at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia and is open for tours. It is the world's oldest floating steel warship and the sole surviving naval ship of the Spanish-American War. More information on the USS Olympia can be seen at http://www.phillyseaport.org/olympia.
