LANCASTER, PA.- The Demuth Museum announced its newest exhibition, Take Another Look! celebrating the 100th anniversary of Lancaster’s landmark exhibition, Loan Exhibition of Historical and Contemporary Portraits Illustrating the Evolution of Portraiture in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, held at the Woolworth Building in 1912. That exhibition was brought together by a large committee, and the Lancaster Historical Society along with the Iris Club helped to coordinate the efforts. The Demuth Museum is pleased to partner with, in the creation of two exhibitions that will expand upon that landmark exhibition held here in Lancaster in 1912, which included over three hundred portraits of Lancastrians, many painted by the most accomplished artists of the day.

The Demuth Museum’s exhibition features a selection of portraits that were included in the original 1912 exhibition as well as expand upon the theme with contemporary portraits and an entire section devoted to photographic portraits. The contemporary section includes portraits in a variety of media created over the past century and a section of contemporary photographic portraits by current Lancaster photographers helped convey the themes, practices and evolution of portraiture in Lancaster over the last century. This insightful and expansive exhibition includes over forty works by notable artists such as Jacob Eichholtz, John Augustus Beck, Constantine Kermes, Michael Abel, Jeff Geib, Gary Boas, Christine Welch and many more.

At the site in downtown Lancaster, the theme is to look at portraits that were in the original exhibition as well as a few examples of pre-1912 portraits that escaped the curator’s eye the first time around.

The Directors of both the Demuth Museum and are pleased to work together on this project. “It was a great pleasure to work directly with Tom Ryan as we curated together. He has great insightfulness towards portraiture in the 18th and 19th centuries,” remarked Anne M. Lampe, Executive Director of the Demuth Museum.
