The General Warren is hosting a holiday arts evening on Thursday, Nov. 19 to give everyone a chance to enjoy holiday cheer and interact with two of the area’s creative individuals, artist Adrian Martinez and author Bruce E. Mowday.

“Since the COVID-19 restrictions have been in place, people have been looking for a safe way to socialize. The General Warren is abiding by all regulations to provide a safe venue for the holiday event,” said Proprietor Patrick Byrne. “In the past months, many of our patrons have been returning to the General Warren for a relaxing meal.”

Those attending the holiday arts event, held from 4-9 PM, will have the opportunity to interact with Martinez and Mowday and ask questions about their projects and creations. Dinners and refreshments will be available for purchase at The General Warren before or after your visit with the artist and author. The inn is located at 9 Old Lancaster Road in Malvern. Admission is free to see Martinez and Mowday.

Those wanting to stay for a full dinner or lite fare are encouraged to make reservations. The restaurant is serving indoors and in a heated outdoor tent from 4-9 PM. Reservations can be made by calling 610-296-3637 or by clicking here.

“This will be a chance for people to enjoy the holiday season in a special way,” Mowday said. “Adrian and I will be available to talk about the creative processes we utilize. Adrian will have some of his wonderful paintings to view. Also, if anyone needs a special holiday gift, Adrian’s paintings and signed copies of my books will be available for sale.”

Martinez is a professional artist and art instructor who lives in Downingtown. His work can be found in many private and public collections, including the White House and Camp David. Recently, the Chester County History Center displayed his exhibit of noted county botanist Humphry Marshall. Click here for more information on Martinez.

Mowday has authored more than 20 books on history, business, sports, and true crime. His latest books include Stealing Wyeth and Emotional Gettysburg. The Wyeth book involves the true story of the theft of 15 paintings from the estate of internationally-known artist Andrew Wyeth.  Mowday will have copies of his companion true crime book that links with the Wyeth case: Jailing the Johnston Gang: Bringing Serial Murderers to Justice.

“Most of our events for 2020 have been cancelled,” Martinez said. “Recently, I participated in a studio tour and Bruce gave a live book talk at a museum. We’ve found, same as Patrick, people are desperately seeking safe venues to socialize. Where better than a holiday event combining art, books, and fine dining!”
