In honor of Women’s History Month, the Brandywine River Museum of Art will present “Her America: Three Women Artists from the Phillips Collection” on three consecutive Wednesdays in March at 11 a.m. 
Presented by Associate Curator Amanda C. Burdan, each lecture will focus on one female artist whose work is on view in "From Homer to Hopper: Experiment and Ingenuity in American Art." The exhibition will be on view at the museum from Feb. 24 through May 21. 
The featured artists are:
March 8:  Georgia O’Keeffe
March 15: Doris Lee
March 22: Grandma Moses.
The series cost for the three lectures is $35 (members, $25). The price for individual lectures is $15 (members, $10). 
"From Homer to Hopper: Experiment and Ingenuity in American Art" reflects the rich diversity of style and expression in American art created between 1870 and 1950. The exhibition features 54 paintings by Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Thomas Eakins, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Horace Pippin, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and many others who revolutionized picture-making in the United States. 
The exhibition traces the course of modern art in the works of these artists -- from the bold, investigative realism of Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins at the end of the 19th century, to the reductive views and psychological insights of Edward Hopper and Morris Graves at mid-20th century.
The Brandywine River Museum of Art is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily, and is located on Route 1 in Chadds Ford. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors ages 65 and older, $6 for students and children ages 6; free for children 5 and younger and Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art members. For more information, call 610-388-2700 or visit brandywinemuseum.org.
