Bill Valerio has been the director of Woodmere since 2010. Thanks to his leadership, the museum is revitalized and Woodmere's contribution to the cultural life of Philadelphia has grown. Woodmere's focus is the arts of our city, and Bill has made sure that queer voices, stories, and exhibitions have been part of Woodmere's programs.
A Queer Take on American Realism: Gilbert Lewis
A leading realist painter of Philadlephia, since the 1960s, Gilbert Lewis has been ahead of his time in celebrating queer identity in art.
The current exhibition at Woodmere Art Museum, Gilbert Lewis: Many Faces, Many Figures, is on view and open to the public through October 25, with advance tickets and social-distance guidelines.
Bill's talk will be a virtual gallery tour, with special emphasis on Lewis's portraits of young men and old men, and his interpretation of pictorial sensuality from a gay male point of view.
For more information about the exhibition, go to woodmereartmuseum.org.
