Two paintings from my Library of Alexandria series are on display in the Philadelphia Sketch Club's Annual Small Oils Exhibition.
The pieces on the flyer,
Wonder" (8 x 10 inches), focuses on how the wonders of the galaxy’s
depth captivated many in the ancient world. The armillary sphere on this
astronomer's shelf alludes to the study of stars in the galaxy.
"Limitless Galaxy" (9 x 11 inches), reflects on how all the knowledge
accumulated in the past leaves inspiration for how much can still be
discovered in a limitless galaxy.
works are a part of a series about scholars from the library of
Alexandria in Egypt and how they influence aspirations for learning.
More pieces and the book being developed from the series can be viewed
The show will be on display from April 1st- April 30th, 2019. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
