New Hope PA Sidetracks Art Gallery Presents "Moby Dick on the Delaware" Starting this Weekend
By Charlie Sahner
New Hope Sidetracks Art Gallery, inspired by the lost white beluga whale that traveled up the Delaware a few years ago, is bringing “Moby Dick on the Delaware” to New Hope all summer long. Featured are the “Moby Dick Suite” of painter and print-maker Bert Yarborough of New Hampshire and Provincetown; the aluminum sculpture, paintings and ink drawings of Timothy Woodman of Provincetown; and one major color lithograph from “The Passion of Ahab” by Benton Spruance, the mid-20th-century American lithographer. Also featured are works by 18 Sidetracks Gallery artists, many local.
The show opens Saturday July 10, with a public reception from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Yarborough's work is particularly impressive and demonstrates the classic Sidetracks aesthetic.
New Hope Sidetracks Art Gallery neighbors the New Hope Arts Center at 2A Stockton Avenue, where Bridge Street meets the railroad tracks. 215-862-4586 for more info.
Sounds like a whale of a time! ;-)
