Watercolor Sketchbooks on Display at Historic Philipse Manor Hall in Yonkers, New York, Starting July 9

Enjoy a summer stroll at Philipse Manor Hall in Yonkers, New York, with artist Emily Stedman's Watercolor Sketchbooks exhibit. The sketchbooks capture the emotional spirit of a special locale through direct watercolor painting. The expressed observations and feelings in these paintings have come about from Stedman's journeys around the world. Painting in watercolor directly on-site allows her to work quickly and in places not normally associated with making art. As a fluid, fresh medium, watercolor does justice to traveling and working in a constantly changing environment.

Emily Stedman was born in New York City. Her family moved to France when she was in first grade. She lived in a number of places while growing up, including Swarthmore PA, Tenafly, NJ, and Hartford, Conn. Stedman is represented at NOHO/M55 Gallery in New York City. Her oil paintings and watercolors have been shown in many group and solo shows including The Brooklyn Museum; The Rotunda Gallery, Brooklyn, New York; The Seattle Erotic Art Festival, Seattle, Washington; and numerous other galleries and publications. Her work is in private and public collections including corporate collections such as Schering – Plough Pharmaceuticals.

Stedman received a B.F.A from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington and an M.F.A. from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY where her painting teacher was Jacob Lawrence.

The Watercolor Sketchbooks exhibit is located in Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site, an historic house museum located in the Getty Square neighborhood of Yonkers, New York. Originally the family seat of Philipse Manor, it is Westchester County’s oldest standing building. It is currently owned and operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and located at Warburton Avenue and Dock Street.
