      Woodmere Welcomes Pope Francis: Biblical Art From the Permanent Collection
    • Saturday, August 1, 2015
    • Throughout art history, biblical stories have directly or indirectly inspired artists of different cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and generations. Like the earliest Judaic and Christian art, which was defined not by a particular style but rather by its imagery, Woodmere's collection encompasses diverse stylistic approaches and media. This exhibition reveals how the stories of the Bible have been interpreted by diverse artists working in distinct social and historical contexts to create stunning images that express deeply felt faith and comment on contemporary issues.

      Raymond Theel: Making a Big Impressionism
    • Saturday, August 1, 2015
    • "Making a Big Impressionism" marks the first major exhibition of the work of Raymond Theel (1891-1952). A relatively obscure artist, Theel painted large-scale, impressionistic landscapes of his hometown in Jarrettown, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding area. Tragically, a fire in 1943 destroyed most of his work. Woodmere's exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the artist's surviving paintings.
