The latest works of well-known local artist Paul Scarborough will be featured in a new exhibit at the Chadds Ford Gallery. The exhibit opens with a reception on Friday, Oct. 11 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“His work is very popular. He's one of the favorites of the gallery,” said Barbara J. Moore, the director of the Chadds Ford Gallery. She noted that Scarborough's work has been featured at the gallery for more than three decades.
Moore said that while Scarborough is a versatile artist, he is best known for his landscapes and each piece has to be personal to him.
Scarborough's artistic achievements have made him a respected name in the art community. He has exhibited widely on the East Coast in one-person and group exhibits. Scarborough's permanent original art can be seen at educational, hospital, and corporate collections of PNC Bank, Wilmington Trust, Co., Blue Cross of Delaware, and the parent company of Benjamin F. Shaw.
This exhibition is titled “Scarborough Fair-Four Seasons.” It showcases Scarborough's talents for depicting the true character of the countryside, including rustic barns, wildlife that is indigenous to the Pennsylvania counties of Chester and Delaware, Rehoboth Beach and fishing haunts he revisits on the Delaware Bay.
The exhibition continues through Sunday, Oct. 27.
