April 18, 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM @ Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences
Through this first person interpretation, Keith Henely, from the American Historical Theater, will share Carver's discoveries with plantings of peanuts, sweet potatoes, and soybeans that changed the southern crop industry. George Washington Carver, better known as the Peanut Man, was the inventor responsible for this change after the Civil War. Carver's ideas influenced farmers both here and abroad for many years. He was a man of strong religious beliefs and of great tenacity. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of Carver's will, determination, and major contribution to farming. A question and answer session will follow. Refreshments will be served. This presentation is sponsored by the Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences Association. Registration is requested.

April 2, 2020, 10:00 AM - May 24, 2020, 4:00 PM @ Warden's House Gallery
Robert has been interested in the way strong light defines spaces by producing dramatic shadows and highlights can also help to create atmospheres. He has been experimenting with that idea using street musicians he sees in center city Philadelphia and people in outdoor restaurants. The strong light helps to influence the narrative behind the figures. The subjects are representational – ranging from landscapes — which are both studio and plein aire — to figurative studies of people within environments in the city of Philadelphia. The landscapes are views from where he lives, which is along the Delaware River in Southern New Jersey. Robert’s paintings are small to mid-sized oil paintings. The paintings are executed on canvas, linen, and museum board using brushes and palette knives.
