Through self-portraits, Holly Trostle Brigham calls attention to the challenges women artists have faced through history, illuminating the legacies of strong women of the past by blending them with her own identity and personal experiences of what it is like to be a woman and an artist today.
Holly Trostle Brigham is a Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts-trained figurative painter who creates mythical allegories of contemporary historical subjects. Her paintings are included in prestigious public collection like the National Portrait Gallery in D.C., the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, the Corcoran Collection in D.C., Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania State University, and Allentown Art Museum.

Finally getting some art on the walls.
I had a wonderful time last night at the VIP opening of N.C. Wyeth: New Perspectives at the Brandywine River Museum of Art. In attendance was Bo Bartlett, Betsy Eby, Mary Page Evans, ‘The’ Helga, among others. The installation is stunning and is in conjunction with the N.C. Wyeth: Painter and Illustrator exhibit at the Somerville Manning Gallery. Both exhibitions are up all summer.
