On Saturday, April 9, please join us for a reception to celebrate the opening of Hearing the Brush: The Painting and Poetry of Warren and Jane Rohrer, on view through July 10, 2022.
Hearing the Brush explores the relationship of art and poetry in the works of Warren and Jane Rohrer. Husband and wife inspired each other with words and visual forms. Born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Warren Rohrer (1927–1995) was one of Philadelphia’s leading abstract painters. His work is rooted in a deep sense of place and texture, whether the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania or the woods of the Wissahickon. Jane Rohrer (born 1928) grew up in Virginia. Her poetry is known for its observational qualities, a sense of sound, and a deeply felt emotional core. Her work has been published in the American Poetry Review, Parallels: Artists/Poets, and elsewhere.
This event is free and open to the public.
