History and Art: Doylestown Showcases Both

Summer has unofficially started, and the activities around town have ramped up in response. A new exhibit is set to open next door at Doylestown Historical Society. The display will focus on “Wilma Rezer: “Doylestown’s 20th Century Historian and Author.” Photos and information about her life (she would have turned 100 this year), as well as contributions she made to the community, will be showcased.

June 4 is also the first day of the second annual Doylestown Art Days (June 4-7). More than 80 artists and local merchants are paired. This year again, Hargrave House will feature one of the paintings done by the late David Frame, another Doylestown institution. Stop by and visit!

Both events will hold kickoffs June 4 at the pocket park behind DHS: 4 p.m. for the historical exhibit followed at 5 with a wine and cheese reception for the four-day art happening.
