Renfrew Celebrates with Art Exhibit

Renfrew Museum and Park proudly kicks off our 43rd season on Saturday, April 14.  The exquisitely decorated Royer-Nicodemus Museum House will be open for free walk through tours from 1 pm to 4 pm.  Renfrew is pleased to welcome Becky Dietrich and other local artists highlighting a “Flora, Fauna, and Folkways of Earlier Times” art show as our season opening exhibit.

The art show, marking its fifth year, will showcase the talents of Dietrich and her talented group of Cumberland Valley artists.  The art show will be held in the Visitors Center Wagon Shed and the Changing Gallery in the Museum House through June 30.  Renfrew will host an artist meet and greet in the Visitors Center from 12 noon to 2 pm with light refreshments.

Dietrich is a local artist and writer that owned A Little Gallery of Mont Alto for twenty years.  Although she is retired she still enjoys showcasing artists’ works and giving them exposure to the public.  On warm Summer days Dietrich and her fellow artists can be found behind the Museum House eating lunch and working on various paintings.

The “Flora, Fauna, and Folkways of Earlier Times” art show features the following dynamic artists and their works:  Dietrich, Jennie Avila, George Brent, Charles Brown, Mike Dawson, Susan McGinley, John Neal Mullican, Betty Niemond, Kathleen Renninger, Laura Lewis Shindle, Carol Wilks, and Doretta Wisler.

Beginning April 16 Renfrew’s Museum House will open Monday through Saturday from 1 pm to 4 pm for house tours and admission charges will apply.  Opening day begins six months of fun filled programs and events that are family friendly.  The park itself is open year-round and our beautiful trails accommodate walkers of any fitness level.
