The Philadelphia area has a staggering array of world-class places to see fine art, and one of the finest is the Somerville Manning Gallery. Since 1981, this gallery – located in the small town of Breck’s Mill, outside of Greenvile, Delaware – has specialized in sharing works inspired by the Brandywine Valley, and brought internationally famous artworks to be viewed in an intimate environment. This summer, the gallery is mounting one of its most ambitious programs yet with "The Longest Light Of Summer," a collection of works by 20th century painters including John Singer Sargent, Charles Burchfield, Francis Coates Jones, Andrew Wyeth, and N.C. Wyeth, as well as contemporary painters inspired by them. The works are all centered around how artists interpret light, both natural and otherwise, in landscapes, still lifes and water paintings. It’s a real treat, and admission to the gallery is free. Get a little culture in your summer. Click here to learn more about The Longest Light of Summer.
