Visiting the Dickinson College

Hey everyone! We’ve finally done it! We’ve finally gone to the Dickinson College to look at their art gallery. The neat thing about that art gallery is it changes every few months. This month it was Exhibition: A British Sentiment: Landscape Drawings and Watercolors

If you’re considering going, I would go now. The exhibit is only open until April 15th, then a new one comes in. Yay!

Okay. Onto the artwork.

My personal favorite was this one called Ploughing by Edward Duncan.

Kathleen’s favorite was this one called Deer in a Wood by  Henry William Burgess.

The Deer in a Wood is made up of so many squiggly lines. To me, it’s reminisce of pointillism, in which and artist paints (or draws) many little dots, the a viewers brain just puts them together into a picture.

Here’s another awesome drawing. It’s made with a combination of graphite and ink on bristol paper. It’s called Malton Priory by William Cowen.

Moving on to paintings, this next one is called Houghton by Charles Cundall. It is a very simply, composed painting, but it leaves out nothing. You can tell that the painting is a few houses nestled behind grasses.

The next one is called Coder Idris by William Colllingwood Smith.

This last one is called Bishopton Valley by Henry Martin Pope. It’s a graphite and a wash on paper.

That’s all for now. What did you think? Did you enjoy your brief visit to the college? Have any other art places you’d like Kath and I to showcase? Let us know in the comments section below. Also, I really need some painting ideas. I have a few, but if you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments section below too. Keep on the lookout for new posts!
