Exhibitions

The Demuth Museum features a rotation of exhibitions for our visitorship expanding on the artwork and legacy of Charles Demuth and his contemporaries. Please note the days between scheduled exhibitions as days the museum will be closed for the installation of the new exhibit. The Demuth Museum is also closed to the public for the month of January.

Sunnyside: Off The Wall
April 23 - June 26, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, April 22, from 5-8pm

The original Sunnyside Mural will be installed at the Demuth Museum in its entirety after recent conservation. This mural was created in 1930 by a group of artist friends including Charles Demuth and tells a story of a young couple traveling through Lancaster County with clever uses of double entendre and whimsy. This exhibition explores relationships between the written word and visual art, as well as an explanatory section on the conservation of this special addition to the museum's collection.

The donation, removal, conservation and exhibition are sponsored by: Warren and Sandra Posey and other Sunnyside Farm owners, the Steinman Foundation and an anonymous local sponsor.

Jeff Geib: On the Wall and Off Again
April 23 - June 26, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, April 22, from 5-8pm

Jeff Geib has taken on the unprecedented challenge of creating charcoal drawings on the walls of the interior of the Lancaster Museum of Art. This superb draughtsman will create extra-large scale installation drawings of traditional vanitas subjects. Geib will also host charcoal drawing workshops for children and adults during this exhibition.

This exhibition is sponsored by Thomas Hills Cook.

Echo Valley Art Group

This exhibit features new print editions created by 22 of the Echo Valley Art Group members that are inspired by some aspect of Paris, its artists or artistic movements. This exhibit's theme stems from the journeys Charles Demuth made to Paris, which in the early twentieth century was a thriving center of artistic activity and provided excellent conditions for the exchange of creative ideas.
