Artist Reception: H. Earl Abbott, Jr.
Meet the noted central Delaware artist H. Earl Abbott, Jr. and discover his picturesque artwork at the Historic Odessa Foundation’s Visitor Center, 6-8pm.
This event is held in conjunction with the art exhibition, From the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal to the Mispillion River: One Artist’s Portrayal, An Exhibition of Paintings by H. Earl Abbott, Jr. (Tuesday, August 6 – Sunday, October 13, 2019). Abbott will conduct a brief talk about his approach to painting, which includes creating small plein-air studies of the landscape that document the composition and colors, and then utilizing those sketches to paint larger traditional studio paintings. Mingle with other HOF members and invited guests during the reception and view many of the artworks that are on public display for the first time.
