Noted artist, author and filmmaker to exhibit at the Stover Mill Gallery


The Stover Mill Gallery welcomes artist, author and filmmaker, Susan W. Dryfoos of Bucks County and New York City for the month of October with her show, “The Accidental Forger and Other Stories: A Life in Art.”
The exhibit is based on her imagination and it celebrates many mediums, illustrates and relates stories from her diaries and reflects on the wonders of life.
“Since I was just a little girl I kept a journal,” said the artist. “I wrote about all the ups and downs of my life: I questioned who was I supposed to be, what mattered most. I poured out my heart every time I fell in love – and out of love. When I was lonely the magic of imagination came to the rescue. When I’d get into trouble, when people I loved died, I turned to my diary to sort it all out. And I’d use the colors of paints to find the answers.”
Dryfoos’s films have won critical acclaim and many awards. Her documentary, “The Line King: The Al Hirschfeld Story,” which was screened nationwide (including at the County Theater in Doylestown) was nominated for an Academy Award. Dryfoos’s book about her grandmother, “Iphigene: The Memoirs of Iphigene Ochs Sulzberger,” was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

In 1996 Dryfoos directed The New York Times Centennial celebration of Adolph S. Ochs, and she served as director of Times History Productions from 1983 to 2001, producing oral and film histories of historic events and of legendary New York Times personalities.
Dryfoos was awarded a Visiting Artist Residence at The American Academy in Rome in 2000. She served as trustee on many boards including The Rhode Island School of Design, PEN American Center, Barnard College, The Nightingale Bamford School. She was chairman of The New York Urban League and was awarded the Frederick Douglass Medal in 2009.
This is Dryfoos’s third exhibition at the Stover Mill Gallery which is at 852 River Road (Route 32) in Erwinna. The show is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Oct. 2-3, 9-10, 16-17, 23-24 and 30-31. For information: email or call 610-294-9420.
