Gratz Gallery http://www.gratzgallery.com
Gallery website:
"We are a fine art gallery and art conservation studio located in the seat of historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania, that specializes in American artists. Our exhibitions and collections focus on the Pennsylvania Impressionists, the Philadelphia Ten, and painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. The conservation studio staff holds close to 40 years of experience in art restoration. Our clients include museums, universities, churches, historical societies, and private collectors."


For those  who have not visited The Gratz Gallery, it is located in a beautiful rural location off Rte 611 near Haring Brothers butcher outlet.  It is well worth a visit to the Silo Hill Road gallery.  Check website for hours.


Fulbright  Scholarship Awards- For those of us who lived during the Viet Nam War, William Fulbright was well known as senator actively opposed to The US involvement.  Importantly, today he is better known for other things.
