Tilghman exhibiting at Gallery 50 and Philip Morton for jazz fest
Just in time for the annual Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival, Dane Tilghman will be featured again at the Philip Morton Gallery, and is also exhibiting work at Gallery 50 Contemporary Art & Framing through Thursday, Oct. 24. The work will be on exhibit for one week and features his “Sports,” “Americana” and “Jazz & Blues” series.
With more than 25 works displayed between the two galleries (and a few other surprise places in town), Tilghman brings a very exciting mix in style and subject matter to Rehoboth for this year's festival.
He has taken his artwork toward new dimensions: going from realism to a stylish combination all his own of surrealism and primitive elongation.
Since 1979, he has exhibited his works throughout the U.S. at art festivals, galleries, trade shows and conventions where he has received numerous awards, including the Medal of Honor in Graphics from the American Artists Professional League. In 1999, a baseball image was accepted at the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame Museum.
He has completed a baseball mural for Turner Stadium, in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as for Citizen’s Ballpark, in Philadelphia for the Phillies in 2004. Dane also had a display of Negro League prints at the former Veteran’s Stadium, in Philadelphia, PA, during 2000. He also completed a mural for West Chester Community Center, West Chester, Pa. in 2000, 8x80 feet in size. He created more than 21 images for the Chester County Historical Society exhibition “Up From Slavery.”
His work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, on ESPN’s website, Scholastic Books published by McGraw-Hill, as well as the Western Journal of Black Studies vol. 16. Dane’s work has appeared on TV shows such as “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne” and has been collected by such notaries as Bill Cosby, Nelson Mandela and the late Ossie Davis.
He has had his work on exhibit at the Afro-American Historical and Cultural Museum in Philadelphia and in one-man shows at Widener University, West Chester University, University of Pennsylvania and the Butler Institute of Fine Art in Youngstown, Ohio.
