A is for Artistry: Celebrating Centuries of Art, Artists & Creativity
From the high art of a fine early 19th century oil portrait to the low art of handmade crafts, people have long incorporated art into their daily lives. This exhibit examines how artisans have embellished even the most functional items used in the home and celebrates centuries of art, artists and creativity.
Beginning with pieces from RHS’s Lenape Collection, this exhibit traces the development of pottery in the U.S., showcases quilts, coverlets and an array of needlework common in the 19th century and highlights the variety of ways artists made portraits using paper and scissors and early photography.
