Bucks Artist in Residence Alan Fetterman’s solo show celebrates home


All are invited and welcome to attend “Bucks County: Its Towns & Around,” a show by Alan Fetterman, Bucks County’s Artist in Residence, opening Friday in Doylestown.

With national acclaim as a neo-impressionist artist, Fetterman is a major force as one of Bucks County’s premier artists. With a degree in philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania and more than 50 solo shows, he presents an insightful stance that has helped to support and guide the arts throughout the region.

Painted mostly on Belgian linen, and occasionally on board or glass, his paintings all present a powerful sense of well-being and goodness. Completely self-taught, his work and style are his own.

Creating an archival high-quality painting in a beautiful frame has been his approach for 30-plus years.

Fetterman is recognized as an American artist with a direct allegiance to Bucks County. His work can be found in major collections and prominent public locations all throughout the region. He has created just over a thousand pieces and his work is synonymous with Bucks County’s long-lasting tradition of being a Mecca for Fine Art and creative living.

“Bucks County has been my home for more than 60 years. Painting its energy and place with an intuitive bright-minded reverence for living and life is my creative compass,” said Fetterman.

His vibrant and powerful painterly qualities and ability to create art that gives the viewer a sense of brightness and joy reveals the reason he is one of the region’s most recognized and collected.

The two-weekend opening will be held from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10; 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12; as well as 6-9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17; 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19.

The show will take place at his studio gallery in Freeman Hall, 181 E. Court St., Doylestown. There is a free parking lot and on-street parking nearby. For information visit or call 215-345-7769.
