BCiS Special Event:Dot Bunn’s Painting of 19th c. Philadelphia at Strawberry Mansion
BCiS is thrilled to host studio oil painter Dot Bunn next Wednesday Oct. 22 in Doylestown, for a talk and slide show about her outstanding full-room wall mural painted in the banquet room of Philadelphia’s Historic Strawberry Mansion.
Dot painted the 500 square foot wall mural depicting 19th century Philadelphia in the banquet room of Historic Strawberry Mansion earlier this year, assisted by painter Patrick Connors. It shows scenes of the city and harbor as they would have appeared at the time the mansion was built. Dot will speak about her mural process and historical research on Wednesday, October 22 at 7:30 PM in Paxson Hall at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 84 E. Oakland Avenue, Doylestown.
Dot’s oil paintings have been exhibited in solo and juried exhibitions, receiving many awards, and is part of a number of private and corporate collections. She won the Alden Bryan Memorial Medal for Traditional Landscape at the 2011 Allied Artists of America Annual Juried Show in New York City, and Best in Show at the Artsbridge Members Show the same year. She lives and teaches in her Bucks County studio where she maintains a strong commitment to working with and teaching the traditional methods of the masters.
Admission for the talk is $10 and for students with ID $5, payable at the door, and the event is open to the public. Seating is first come first served, and light refreshments will be provided. For further info email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-348-4837.
