PHIL SEALY: A Retrospecitve
Celebrating A Master Watercolorist & His Work
PHIL SEALY: A Retrospective is the first major museum exhibition devoted to the full scope of Phil Sealy’s career, widely considered to be among the most important and prolific artists of the Fox Valley region. The exhibition presents an unparalleled opportunity to view the artist’s development over more than six decades, beginning with his early three-dimensional carved work and concluding with his refined paintings in watercolor. Bringing together nearly 100 works from public and private collections.
Representing virtually every type of work Sealy has created, in both technique and subject matter, this retrospective includes works in wood, paintings, drawings, and informal plein air sketches. Among these are the artist’s well known, landmark paintings—–Feeding Time (1970), Heins Creek (1998) and Birch Shadows (2010).
Since its beginning in the 1960’s as the Appleton Gallery of Arts Association, to the Appleton Art Center, to what is now known as The Trout Museum of Art, Sealy has played a significant role in the organization. He continues to serve on the board of directors of the Fox Cities Building for the Arts/The Trout Museum of Art.
We are proud to celebrate Phil and his six decades of work and service.
