Patty Owens, Nepenthe Gallery's Curator, will lead a discussion on Thomas Sully’s Athenaeum Portrait of George Washington. The masterpiece is currently on loan to the gallery from the Owens Foundation/Muscarelle Museum of Art at William & Mary. Nepenthe is proud to exhibit one of Sully's most important paintings of George Washington. Come learn more about this treasured portrait and one of America's preeminent portraitists who painted it. 

Nepenthe Gallery, in partnership with the estate of Mount Vernon and Woodlawn Mansion, presents “MOUNT VERNON” from February 1st – March 15th. We will host six Thursday night “ART + WINE + CHEESE” events related to this exhibit, and we will highlight one piece from the exhibit each week.
