    New Acquisition: Drawings by Aaron Sopher
    February 14, 2019May 3, 2019
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Free with Museum Admission

    Born to a large Jewish family in East Baltimore, Aaron Sopher (1905–72) became one of the most prolific and inimitable illustrators of the mid-twentieth century, capturing the world as he saw it for America’s leading periodicals, including The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and The Baltimore Sun, where he worked as a freelance illustrator.

    In November 1962 Sopher was commissioned by The Baltimore Sun to illustrate a series of letters between its film and drama critic, R.H. Gardner, and a reader using the name Lorry Quakenbush. The letters revealed Quakenbush, a self-described "semi-literate pool hustler," to be a sensitive and perceptive foil for Gardner.

    The six sketches in this focus exhibition reveal Sopher's process as he sought to capture this most unusual penpal in pen and ink.  

    This exhibition celebrates the recent gift of thirty-four drawings by Aaron Sopher to Evergreen Museum & Library from Chris Bready. The exhibition is guest curated by Bella Smith, a senior at Baltimore School for the Arts and Evergreen's Summer 2018 Bloomberg Arts Intern.

With work now complete, hear what it took to reinvigorate this Beaux Arts beauty from the master craftsmen responsible: Steve Dykstra and Lee Badger of Anvil Works, a custom metalworking firm based in West Virginia, and Mark Forrest West a Baltimore-based artist who specializes in antiques, historic design, and restoration. The illustrated talk will include a trip outside to see the canopy in person. A reception with the speakers will follow the talk.
