Eye of the Elephant

The carriage house on King’s Oaks Farm in Newtown, Pa., where Alex Cohen paints was once an apartment occupied by itinerant airmen. His grandfather was the aviator who cut a runway through the fields on the farm. While the airfield has been dormant for a number of years, Mr. Cohen maintains his vivid memories of this place where flying machines frequented through theĀ  rural setting of the Bucks County landscape. The carriage house studio is as much a workspace as a muse for the painter.

Mr. Cohen’s carriage house will be a stop on the Elephant’s Eye-Bucks County Studio tour. Over two May weekends a selection of Bucks County’s finest contemporary artists open their studio doors to the public.

The tour showcases nationally and internationally acclaimed artists who make two- and three-dimensional work in various media, including oil paintings, photographs, sculpture, pottery, turned wood and more. Some studios will feature visiting artists and demonstrations take place at select locations.
