    Location
    Home of Christine Oaklander
    Presented by Lehigh Valley Arts Council

    The series launches with An Artist Rediscovered on Sunday, February 21, 2016. Art historian and curator Dr. Christine Oaklander will lead visitors on an excursion into the life and art of 19th century artist, Henry Grant Plumb. An international artist, Plumb was born in 1847 in the central New York town of Sherburne and maintained a studio in New York City until his death.

    In the spring of 2014, Dr. Oaklander discovered a treasure trove of Plumb’s works on paper, forty oil paintings, letters, photo albums, awards, and personal belongings—stashed under a dealer’s table at the Great Eastern Paper Show in Allentown. Her discovery has prompted a personal quest to revive Plumb’s reputation, which includes arranging scholarly exhibitions and writing a catalog.

    John Arnold, guitars

    Peter Hall – Moravian College, Hurd Campus

    Virtuoso guitarist John Arnold, takes us on a musical journey played on period guitars (on loan from Martin Guitar). The years from 1865-1920 were rife with guitar music in the United States, much of which has been in obscurity, until Mr. Arnold and his mentor, Glenn Caluda began their research. Some of this music has been recorded using period Martin Guitars and will be available soon to the public. Join us for some rarely heard, but beautiful music.
