Located in historic Breck's Mill adjacent to the Hagley Museum, Somerville Manning is unique among small city galleries. Since 1981 the Somerville Manning Gallery has been committed to exhibiting art from the historic tradition of the Brandywine Valley, to presenting the best of regional artists, and to bringing to Wilmington artists of national and international stature.
In these years we have introduced current art trends into an area already steeped in a rich art tradition, mounting exhibitions that center around our cultural heritage both past and present. With respect to the Illustration School begun by Howard Pyle in 1894, the gallery has arranged historic exhibitions such as "Howard Pyle and His Students" and "N.C. Wyeth." Continuing with the Wyeth family, Somerville Manning Gallery exhibits and sells paintings by other family members such as Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth, John McCoy, Anne Wyeth McCoy, and Anna Brelsford McCoy.
Somerville Manning Gallery also represents and exhibits fine 20th century paintings, sculptures and works on paper by American artists Peter Sculthorpe, J. Clayton Bright, Greg Mort, and many others.
