Drawing on History: A Day of Drawing at the Riversdale House Museum

Drawing on History: A Day of Drawing at the Riversdale House MuseumThe Riversdale House Museum and the Brentwood Arts Exchange are partnering to encourage history enthusiasts and artists of all levels to draw inside the Riversdale House Museum. Timed to coincide with the exhibition, Some of the Finest Paintings Ever in America, this rare chance to draw inside the house is also a rare opportunity to create drawings inspired by reproductions of European Old Master paintings from the collection of the Peeters and Stier families.

Drawing on History is free, open to the public, and will feature drawing activities inside the mansion as well as outside in the gardens. Limited supplies will be provided to children on a first come, first serve basis.

Artist Talk: Jackie Brown - Between the Real and the Imagined

Artist Talk: Jackie Brown - Between the Real and the ImaginedJackie Brown works to create imagined biological systems that suggest growth, movement, and expansion. It's often ambiguous as to whether her forms are benign or toxic, and she hope to suggest mutation, as if systems are melding into new and uncertain growths. While each work is imaginative, the ideas that are central to the work reference real phenomenon, and Brown is increasingly interested in experiments that involve the human manipulation of living systems.
