Mennonite Ledger Page Exhibit

It’s good to be back to work again. I hope that all of you had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to a happy and healthy new 2011.

There has been a lot of interest in the early ledger papers I have sold in my store, hospital many wondering if I would be able to get more of them. I wasn’t sure, tadalafil but this past weekend I did. I am not sure if any more will be available to me. The man I have been purchasing these from told me about an article he had. I asked if he would send a copy to me. He did and this is what it said.

This is what it said.
Brick Walk Fine Art, unhealthy 322 Park Road, West Hartford, will offer a Holiday exhibition called “A Peaceable Kingdom” featuring anonymous Depression-Era Mennonite watercolors on antique ledger paper. These singular images of animals and birds were found amongst the property of a Mennonite estate in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and are exceptional examples of the purity of American folk art. Sophisticated in their design and joyful in their color, these works present the animal kingdom in an imaginative way, and as is the case with much folk art, the works are honest and simply stated. The exhibit will be open from Dec. 4 through Jan. 8.

After reading it, I decided to do a little more research on the internet, and found these  small articles.

For those of you that have purchased these ledger pages from me, and for those that have not, I thought you would find this interesting. I did.

Happy day

    Happy New Year, Carole…

    I was pleased to see more “ledger animals” in your store yesterday. I purchased the brownish cat drawing several weeks ago, and was delighted when she arrived. Yesterday, I purchased the brown horse and I am sure he will be wonderful as well.
    These naive paintings are truly pieces of American folkart. Thanks for finding them.
