A Grand Vision: Violet Oakley and the American Renaissance

Posted on 04 Oct 2017. By

This fall the Woodmere Art Museum will present a large-scale exhibition of the work of Violet Oakley (1874-1961), the first in more three decades. The exhibition will focus on the artist’s public commissions, which are rarely seen because of their fixed locations in civic buildings, churches, schools, and private residences. Studies for commissions that span Oakley’s fifty-year career will include her work at the Pennsylvania State Capitol and the Great Women of the Bible series here at First Church. Join art historians and guests from Woodmere on Wednesday, Nov. 1 from 2-4 p.m. in the Jennings Room. The exhibition runs September 30, 2017-January 21, 2018. For more information, visit or call 215-247-0476. Visit Woodmere for free on Sundays.
