The Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia is currently celebrating one of city’s most revered realist painters and watercolor innovators, Eileen Goodman, in a solo exhibition.
Exceptional tonal ranges, saturated hues, and vivid textures are all characteristics of the coveted watercolors by artist Eileen Goodman, who forms the focus of an outstanding exhibition at the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia. Via the exhibition website, “The show will include work spanning five decades of the artist’s career, from her early figurative drawings, prints, and oils to her recent monumental watercolors. The range of works on view will demonstrate how her mastery of watercolor was shaped by both her formal artistic training and her independent experimentation in various media.”
In conjunction with the exhibition, the museum has organized a number of related events, including a constructive feedback/workshop with the artist herself on November 21. As the museum describes it:  “Look at your watercolor paintings with artist Eileen Goodman and discover new possibilities. Begin in the studio, then visit Woodmere’s galleries to see the unique qualities of watercolor in Goodman’s art.” Assistant curator Rachel McCay will lead a gallery talk on November 14 while Goodman herself will lead a tour on January 9.
“The Weight of Watercolor: The Art of Eileen Goodman” opens on November 14 and will be on view through March 13.
