Terry Anderson – Waterlines ~ New Paintings
Mar 23 all-day

Terry Anderson’s new paintings focus on the landscapes from the Brandywine Watershed to the Canadian Near North. Terry is a ceramicist and a painter. “Although my work is representational, to me it is all about the relationships between shape, space and color rather than the actual objects.”

FROM HOMER TO HOPPER: EXPERIMENT AND INGENUITY IN AMERICAN ART
Mar 23 @ 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

FROM HOMER TO HOPPER: EXPERIMENT AND INGENUITY IN AMERICAN ART
February 25, 2017 to May 21, 2017, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Included with museum admission
This exhibition reflects the rich diversity of style and expression in American art created between 1870 and 1950. Assembled by the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, it features fifty-four superb paintings by Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Thomas Eakins, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Horace Pippin, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and many others who revolutionized picture-making in the United States. The exhibition traces the course of modern art in the works of these artists—from the bold, investigative realism of Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins at the end of the nineteenth century, to the reductive views and psychological insights of Edward Hopper and Morris Graves at mid-twentieth century.
This exhibition is made possible by William and Laura Buck. Additional support provided by FREEMAN’s.





NEW TERRAINS: AMERICAN PAINTINGS FROM THE RICHARD M. SCAIFE BEQUEST
Mar 23 @ 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

NEW TERRAINS: AMERICAN PAINTINGS FROM THE RICHARD M. SCAIFE BEQUEST
April 8, 2016 to May 30, 2017, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. **revised end date**
Included with Museum admission
New Terrains presents over twenty-five important works of American art from Richard M. Scaife, a Pittsburgh philanthropist and former trustee of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art.
The exhibition showcases paintings by artists who are new to the collection, such as Hudson River School painters Martin Johnson Heade, John Kensett, and Albert Bierstadt, whose luminous, contemplative views of nature influenced the grand tradition of mid-nineteenth-century landscape painting in America. Other exciting introductions to the collection through the Scaife bequest are works by American Impressionists William Merritt Chase, Theodore Robinson, Edward Redfield, Julian Alden Weir and others. These artists of the late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century changed the course of American landscape painting through their adaptation of trends in European art. Their interpretive approach to rendering their surroundings with vibrant color and energetic brushwork is amply demonstrated in the exhibition. These paintings and more featured in New Terrains honor Richard Scaife and his generous vision for the Brandywine and represent a milestone in the museum’s collection of American art.

THE GLIMMER TWINS (CLASSIC ROLLING STONES TRIBUTE EXPERIENCE) AND RUST: A NEIL YOUNG TRIBUTE
Mar 24 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The Rolling Stones have long been hailed as The Greatest Rock-n-Roll Band in the World. But before they became the corporate machine that they are sometimes referred to as today, they earned this title by wowing audiences worldwide with some of the most electrifying performances in the history of rock-n-roll. Beginning with the recording of the classic album ‘Beggar’s Banquet’ in the late 60’s, the Rolling Stones would enter into what is widely considered to be their most creative period that would continue right up through the release of the album ‘Exile On Main St.’ You will be amazed at the way The Glimmer Twins are able to recreate the look and feel of The Rolling Stones during this period and beyond.

The Rolling Stones single handedly changed the way rock concerts were presented to large audiences when they kicked off their ’69 U.S. Tour which is thoroughly documented in the movie ‘Gimme Shelter’. By combining the raw energy of the band with the more sophisticated amplification systems for the times, The Stones were able to connect with their mass audiences in sold-out arenas on a whole new level. The Glimmer Twins will give you a close-up view and feeling of what it was like to be in the audience at one of these historical performances.

By 1972 their live performances were creating such frenzy, that many venues needed to utilize a lottery system in order to fairly distribute tickets because of the overwhelming demand. In subsequent years, the audiences kept increasing in size to the point where The Stones were selling out stadiums across the world. Everyone wanted to experience the sensation of seeing The Rolling Stones perform. What makes The Glimmer Twins such a special attraction is their ability to capture the raw energy of the most electrifying performances throughout The Rolling Stones career, and present it in such a way that audiences are able to experience the same sensation of what it was like to be at a Stones concert in their heyday. Because of the uncanny resemblances to Mick Jagger & Keith Richards in their prime coupled with the special attention given to the minutest details both musically and visually, The Glimmer Twins are a cut above all other tribute bands on the circuit today.

Mar 25 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The Muzaholics band, with a plethora of musical tastes and styles ranging from Gospel, Jazz, Fusion, Hip Hop and Soul, show no limitation in creativity, sound and writing ability. Founded by drummer/producer Nathan Jacobs in 2006, the band extends the tri-state area including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. They consist of a group of skilled musicians and friends who decided to come together to form a unique sound in music. The ultimate mission of the band is to “Create a Lasting Sound that Touches the Mind, Body and Soul.

The band has performed at venues and events such as The World Café Live, WarmDaddy’s, the 76ers’ Pregame show, Chester Riverfront Ramble, Lincoln University and Omega Psi Phi fraternity to name a few.

They have also opened for acts such as Kierra “KeKe” Sheard, KeKe Ross, Donald McClurkin, Pastor George Bell and H. Wade Johnson.

In 2011, they released their first single, a smooth jazz/neo-soul remake of De’Angelo’s 1996 hit, “Lady.” The song, which features well known saxophonist Skip Pruitt and recording artist Jeff Murrell, showcases the band’s versatilestyle and love for various forms of music.

After taking many professional engagements and performing live shows, The Muzaholics have released a new inspirational single entitled, “You Are the Son,” featuring soloist Trina Miller. The song speaks to their love of God and highlights their roots and foundation in gospel music.

As the band continues to promote their new single and perform, they are planning to release their highly anticipated EP in the Spring of 2017.
