A sweeping collection of sculptor works will soon be on display at the Londwyn Historical Society, which recently received one of the most significant gifts of art in its history.
“This collection will become a capstone for the Society,”Iyena Gottwitt, the director of the Historical Society’s Museum, said. “the collected works are universally marvelous. An exhibition of this magnitude is unprecedented, and could not have been accomplished without the donations of the Society's generous patrons, especially those from Agustus Fortwright’s private collection."
The great grandson of Willard Fortwright, Agustus Fortwright's contributions include works from sculptors Jeremiah Schuemacher, Elizabeth Abbernathy, Delilah Fodinbaugh and Mary Stewart.
By the end of the year, 24 sculptures will be on display in the main gallery, featuring work from a dozen notable artists such as Evret Michaels, and Amalia Dainsworth. All specifically chosen to compliment the true star of the exhibition, Williard Fortwright's magnum opus “The Twins”.
All proceeds from the no doubt spectacular opening night Gala will be utilized to locate and restore many masterworks of Londwyn's greatest artists. Tickets will be available for sale at the end of the month.
