     Smokehouse – by Eric Sloane, N.A.  Original pen and ink signed “Eric Sloane, N.A.” lower right.  Charming example of Eric’s illustrative style.  Sloane’s inclusion of overhanging tree branches draws the viewer inside to this early American scene.  A charming early smokehouse is featured, with the wonderful inclusion of a stone barn in the distance, as well as the roof and chimney of an ancient farm house.  In order to be included in the gallery’s works for sale, Smokehouse  underwent extensive re-framing which included a thorough polishing of the glass and inclusion of acid-free materials in a way which allows for the retention of the original Walter Skor mat.  An added bonus – Smokehouse retains it’s original Walter Skor frame to complete a wonderful, original scene that remains as Eric Sloane intended – with the benefit of acid-free museum grade framing materials.  Smokehouse by Eric Sloane, N.A. 20.50″ wide  x 18″ tall (approximate framed size), 14″ wide x 12″ tall (approximate image size).  Please call the gallery for pricing information.

2018 Presidents letter in Winter 2018 issue of Legacy, the newsletter of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum

December 9, 2018 |  by  |  Comments Off on 2018 Presidents letter in Winter 2018 issue of Legacy, the newsletter of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum

Dear Friend in Eric Sloane:

Many of you will recognize my daughter Edith on the cover, holding an Eric Sloane painting we are donating to the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum this year.  The photograph, while cute (I am biased) is symbolic of two challenges for the future.  The painting itself is to me symbolic of support – support for the Friends, support for the museum, and support for the legacy of Eric Sloane.  We donated this painting so it could be sold in the future to help fund the next project that the Friends envisions to enhance the visitation experience at the museum and to help visitors more deeply understand and appreciate the work of Eric Sloane.  Edith is symbolic of the second challenge to engage young people, encouraging them to want to learn and experience early American life and culture. Your support continues to be a critical component of working towards meeting both of these challenges.

         Our goal for 2019 is to erect the cabin and offer an experience for volunteers to help put the finishing touches on and in the building. We’re inviting all of our sponsors, donors, members, and the wider community to take part in four sessions in 2019.  We’ll provide the tools, snacks, and instructions covering many aspects of traditional 18thand early 19thcentury building techniques.  We’ll go over safety, proper use of traditional tools, and technique – if you’ll bring your enthusiasm, sunscreen, bug repellant, proper boots and attire, and a sense of humor.  Join us and be part of a fun and informative experience helping to build the Noah Blake cabin.  

Our collective efforts will be celebrated on Saturday, September 21st, as part of the 50thanniversary celebration of the Eric Sloane Museum – an event you will not want to miss.  Thank you for standing with us– and continuing to stand with us in the future.  

With My Thanks, 

Jim
