Demuth Museum to Mount Two-Part David Brumbach Exhibition
David Brumbach. “The Star Barn”, 1978, acrylic on paper, 3 ¾ x 4 7/8 inches, Private Collection.


LANCASTER, PA.- The Demuth Museum will present David Brumbach Unbound: Pages from his Book from November 8, 2008 – January 4, 2009. This two-part exhibition will explore the work of Lancaster artist David Brumbach (1948-1992). Like Charles Demuth, David Brumbach had diabetes and suffered from the ravaging effects of the disease. In 1985, Brumbach was a patient at Lancaster General to receive treatment for his illness. During his hospital stay, the artist created a notebook of spontaneous, personal drawings that, viewed in retrospect, chronicle this trying time in Brumbach’s life. The Demuth Museum has gathered this group of little-known drawings and will exhibit them for the first time publicly in David Brumbach Unbound.

In addition to reuniting this unique body of work, the exhibition will feature a retrospective overview of Brumbach's career, highlighting his varied stylistic range. This portion of the exhibition will survey his photo-realist works of urban scenes, well-known rural Lancaster County subjects such as the Star Barn, later abstract works and his lesser-known comic drawings. This gathering of works, many of which have not been seen in Lancaster for over thirty years, will offer a new insight into the beloved Lancaster artist.

David Brumbach Unbound is presented in celebration of what would have been the artist’s sixtieth birthday and also coincides with National Diabetes Month in November. An illustrated booklet will be available for purchase with an essay by Demuth Museum Executive Director, Anne M. Lampe.

Lancaster General is the proud sponsor of David Brumbach Unbound: Pages from his Book. An opening reception will be held on November 7, from 5-7 p.m. at the Demuth Museum in conjunction with First Friday activities.

The Demuth Museum, established in 1981, is dedicated to developing awareness, understanding and appreciation of the artwork and legacy of Charles Demuth (1883-1935). As a leader of the American Modernist movement, Demuth is best known as a pioneer of the precisionist style and a master watercolorist. Located in the artist’s former home and studio in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the Demuth Museum has a permanent collection of over 30 Demuth works, along with an extensive archive and library. The Demuth Tobacco Shop, the oldest operating shop of its kind in America, and other historic buildings surround the museum; all are open to the public. All exhibits are supported in part by a grant from the Pennsylvania Council for the Arts. The Demuth Museum is also supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
