Francis and Sarah: The Early Years

Francis and Sarah: The Early Years

Jan 5th – Feb 12th, 2014

“Francis and Sarah: The Early Years” has been made possible through the custodial perspicacity of the two children of Francis Speight and Sarah Blakeslee – Elisabeth and Tom, who have devotedly preserved their family treasures. Through their generosity we have an intimate glimpse into the early lives of their gifted and sensitive artist parents. This exhibition is a rewarding event in my own maturation as an art curator. In my first art job as an eager-eyed intern at the North Carolina Museum of Art’s Collectors Gallery, I had the memorable honor of installing a Sarah Blakeslee show. Sarah and her husband Francis are today recognized not only as influential North Carolina / Pennsylvania painters, but also as artists who made important contributions to American impressionism.
