Glimpse of 1930s

January 29, 1998|By John Dorsey

Eloise Hampton Wilson, who died in 1994, was an artist and illustrator whose prints of working people appeared in the New Yorker in the 1930s. A native of Pennsylvania, she moved to Harford County in 1933 and became prominent on the local cultural scene, serving on the board of trustees of the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Harford County Board of Library Trustees. It was only after she died that her art works of the 1930s were found at her home. Photographer Susan Tobin, a friend of Wilson's, and Helen Glazer, Goucher College's exhibitions director, have co-curated an exhibit of Wilson's work that appears at the college's Rosenberg Gallery. Also on view are other 1930s prints from the Goucher College collection.

At the Rosenberg Gallery of Goucher College, Dulaney Valley Road, Towson, through March 6. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and evenings and weekends of events in Kraushaar Auditorium. For information, call 410-337-6333.
