With less than a month remaining until the exhibition comes down and the watercolors return to their owners, Pamela J. Forsythe, a long time Cape May fan, photographer and writer penned a remarkably attentive review of the book and exhibition. To read it, click on this link.
Today, I had the pleasure of sharing the exhibition with my mother’s first cousin, Peg Simone, and Peg’s friend Ruth Ann Lis. The two women drove from Ohio yesterday, and this morning they went on the special Cape May County Art League walking tour of sights painted by Alice, then we visited the Carroll Gallery at the Carriage House to view the original paintings, and studio ephemera.
I will be sad to remove these paintings from public view, but I hope and intend to find public collections that will provide a home for the art and artifacts for generations to come. If you have any ideas or assistance in this mission, I would love to hear from you . . . and meanwhile, please make your way to Cape May for a visit to this exhibition before it comes down. I am so blessed and grateful to the staff and volunteers at the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities for providing the perfect venue for this partial retrospective of Alice Steer Wilson’s work.
