Philadelphia Sketch Club Small Oils

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,

"Ancient 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.

These 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 at arthurhaywood.com

The show will be on display from April 1st- April 30th, 2019.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Viewing: Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun   1 - 5  PM

The Reception is April 28th , 2 - 4 PM 

Located at the Philadelphia Sketch Club, 235 South Camac Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
