Seneca Falls, N.Y. – Artist Blake Chamberlain will be working on murals in the Visitor Center at Women's Rights National Historical Park during the month of May. One of the murals will be a modern and colorful life size representation of the organizers and notable attendees of the Seneca Falls Convention of July 1848, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Martha Coffin Wright, Jane Hunt, Mary Ann M'Clintock, and Frederick Douglass.
Seattle resident Blake Chamberlain is known for a striking style of portraiture, utilizing areas of flat color and combining elements of intricate line, pattern, and geometric abstraction to compose the facial features of a subject. Originally from Auburn, NY, Chamberlain has dedicated much of his work over the past five years to representing inspirational figures from Central and Western New York history. You can watch Chamberlain as he paints on the following dates: 5/13, 5/14, 5/19, 5/20, 5/21, 5/26 during Visitor Center open hours 9:00 am – 5:00pm. Chamberlain will be having a reception on Saturday 5/27 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.
