Music @ the Mansion: Beaucoup Blue

Music @ the Mansion: Beaucoup Blue

Music at the Mansion is thrilled to kick off its fall season with Beaucoup Blue performing at the Liriodendron on Sunday, September 22 at 6 pm!  

The Philadelphia-based Americana father and son duo of David and Adrian Mowry perform their roots-based music nationally and internationally as a duo, quartet and, on occasion, quintet.

Bridging many gaps in American music, their soulful traditional and contemporary styles mesh into an innovative and authentic sound. Although blues is a staple in their repertoire, they are heavily influenced by Folk, Soul, R&B, Jazz, Country and Bluegrass. All these interests and influences come out in their original song-writing in a unique way.

Enjoy an evening with two generations coming together for the common good of great music everywhere.

Tickets $15 for adults, $7 for children 6 – 12  (kids under 6 admitted free.)

Tickets available online, by phone or at the door.

Doors open at 5:30 pm.

Multimedia Art Show

Multimedia Art Show

 Multimedia Art Show – August 25 – September 15

Featuring the works of Craig Haupt, Terri Slack Hardwicke, and Christopher Winslow 

The Liriodendron is excited to exhibit the works of three eclectic artists, along with additional pop-up artists.

Craig Haupt is largely self-taught. Combining a long career of drafting skills with selected sketchbook doodles, he has been creating a menagerie of whimsical subjects. He now works primarily with oils, but still continues to produce numerous images with watercolor and pen & ink. 

A graduate of Towson University, Craig has exhibited in various locations throughout Maryland, and in Brooklyn, NY. 

“Visual Arts has been a series of ebb & flows throughout my life. During 1995, the strongest flow washed over me and has sustained to this day,” says the artist.

Terri Slack Hardwicke is a multi-media artist who is also one of the Gallery Directors at the Liriodendron. She creates whimsical pieces out of up-cycled furniture, glassware, and other items.

Christopher Winslow is a painter who had his early education in California and Papua New Guinea (1971 to 1975) and at the
 Dun Laoghaire College of Art, Republic of Ireland (1976 to 1980.)

Thirty years ago, he settled in Maryland and began his career as a decorative painter.

“Over the years I have had the good fortune to be able to focus on privately commissioned paintings, portraits, and murals. In my commercial work I paint in many styles and replicate different periods of art, depending on what the interior designer or client wants. This has given me a great opportunity to explore and combine many genres of art and design, creating a new and fresh look.”

A special opening reception will be held from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, August 25. The exhibit will be on view through September 15 on Sundays from 1 to 4 and Wednesdays from 1 to 7.

Summer at the Gallery

Summer at the Gallery

Visit the Art Gallery at the Liriodendron from July 28 through August 18 to view the beautiful works of Ellie Tryon Elgin, Rhoda Seiden, and Barbara Love – all painters skilled in the art of Plein Air.

Ellie Tryon Elgin Ellie has a B.F.A. in painting and drawing from Maryland Institute College of Art and an M.A.T. in Museum Education from George Washington University.  Ellie teaches art at the McFaul Senior Center and at Harford Community College. 

Ellie has recieved commendations, recognitions and certificates of appreciation from Animal Rescue Inc., the City of Baltimore, the State of Maryland and in the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center exhibit on “Creative Women of Maryland” for her artistic contributions.  

Ellie is a member of Harford County Artists Association, Arts by the Bay Gallery, Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association. ​

Besides her love of animals, Ellie loves exploring the Maryland countryside painting the beauty of the MidAtlantic area. Ellie is currently working on a series of paintings that celebrate and portray the beauty of Harford County and surrounding areas. Most Wednesdays you can find Ellie along with her fellow artists at Liriodendron for an informal art critique of their latest works.

Rhoda Seiden works in both acrylics and watercolors.  Some of her watercolors reflect her interest in Japanese ink painting which she studied for several years.   In these, she attempts to combine the oriental style with the use of color more common to traditional watercolor paintings.  Other paintings treat the subject in accordance with a more conventional watercolor style. 

Both her watercolors and acrylics focus on color, light and rhythm, and she attempts to depict a variety of subjects in unique ways.  Landscapes, however, are a favorite subject.

Rhoda has traveled extensively in the Southwest and finds much inspiration in the colorful scenery, architecture, and art of that region.

Barbara Love has been actively painting for 35 years.  She formally trained at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore. 

Barbara’s work is based on the fundamentals of design and composition, thus creating a finished work that will provide pleasure to both the emotions and the eye through many generations regardless of current and passing fashion trends.

Barbara has exhibited in galleries in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia, and her works can be found in many private collections. In addition to her original works, Ms. Love is a registered copyist at the National Gallery in Washington, DC and the Musee de Louvre in Paris.

Ms. Love regularly conducts painting classes and workshops.  She is an active member of the Wednesday Artists’ Group which meets at the Liriodendron.
