Megan Euell and Francis Waplinger's exhibition Pittura e Pelle, Painting and Leather opened in August at the Art Gallery at 1708 House. Happily, much of the show is still on display.
Euell and Waplinger met when they were both studying in Florence. It is wonderful to see their work displayed in the elegant confines of the 1708 House. Euell's portraits give you a feeling of what it was like to live in the day when every great house displayed portraits of honored and beloved family throughout the manor.
The fine examples of Waplinger's hand crafted and designed footwear encouraged me to go to his site and see if there was something there to tempt me. Oh yes... there is.
