Studio group wilmington delaware


Founded in 1935 in Wilmington, Delaware by three artist friends, Mildred Edinger, Marion Howard, and Eugenia Rhoads, the goal was to find a studio where they could work together and have critic guests for artistic advice. Other early members included Margery Pyle, Jeannette Edwards and Clara Finkelstein. From inception, the group has met once a week and continues into the 21st century. The first studio location was 1616 Rodney Street in the Bancroft Studios area, and today the Studio is the building that housed the studio of Howard Pyle.
