Ben Soloweys Show Business
While we only mount two interpretive exhibitions a year of Ben Soloweys work and the work of his contemporaries, his prodigious output is often included in other exhibitions around the country. At present, Ben s 1937 charcoal portrait from life of George Balanchine is currently on view at the San Francisco Performing Arts Library and Museum as part of their Balanchine Centennial celebration, George Balanchine: Ballet Master.
Bens oil, End of Summer Our Lane was part of the Coming Home exhibition at the Michener Museums new satellite museum in New Hope. The work was also reproduced in the Museums tome on this regions Impressionist movement. There is also a photograph of Ben in the sites new permanent Artists Among Us installation, sitting for sculptor Joe Greenberg at the New Hope Fine Arts Workshop.
Four of Bens prints were also recently featured in Lathrop to Allen: A Century of Bucks County Printmaking at the Sabine Rose Gallery in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. This exhibition is the flagship event of Buck Fever, a four month celebration of the arts in the area.
