Summer Display Case shows In June, the display cases will show pastel drawings by Margaret Hendrickson, who often features landscapes and animals in her art work. Hendrickson relocated to Pittsburgh from Chicago recently. In July the Sewickley Valley Historical Society will be showcasing the postal history collection of SVHS member Dan Telep. The collection recounts the “origin and development of the eight post offices that served the greater Sewickley area from 1803 to 1953.” We are excited to have the opportunity to display this important collection, which will show a wide variety of unique usages and cancellations. Dan Telep will provide guided tours of the collection in July, dates to be announced. In August, we will show Pittsburgh artists Naomi Chambers and Nora Gilchrist. Naomi Chambers is a painter and assemblage sculptor interested in speaking love through her work, and teaching others to do the same. Nora Gilchrist is an artist/educator. Her mixed media art engages with portraiture, history, material culture, and reuse. Naomi and Nora are part of a new artist collective called The Dorothy Height by Nora Gilchrist FlowerHouse, located in Wilkinsburg.
