Sponsored by Moderne Gallery, this special public presentation of the film An American Craftsman – Wharton Esherick (previously titled I am Known as an Artist) includes a question and answer session with director Carolyn Coal.
Disinterested in conventional society, Wharton Esherick moved to rural Chester County outside Philadelphia in 1913, where he pursued the life of a painter only to discover his passion for wood. Over time he abandoned painting altogether, opting to produce furniture in his studio one piece at a time for the next 55 years. Join us in viewing this beautiful tribute!
