At the Edge

What a phenomenal show! A couple friends and I journeyed eight hours to The Allentown Art Museum for the "At the Edge" gallery. One of my professors in college said that if you didn't lick a painting you didn't see it (crazy I know), I didn't lick any paintings but just being in the same room as a Leyendecker and contemporaries like Gurney and Giancola was beyond words and taste. 

A couple studies of my favorite pieces, the Leyendecker got its own page :)

 The museum had a very nice permanent gallery as well, a Sargent was hiding in the shadows!

After driving through a rain storm for eight hours the day before, I was ready!
