David Fried's North and South Exhibition at Slayton House in Columbia, Maryland, Feb. 10 to March 12, 2011

An exhibition of paintings by David Fried will take place February 10 to March 12, 2011, at Slayton House, 10400 Cross Fox Lane, Wild Lake Village Green, Columbia, Maryland. The title of the exhibition is "North and South" and the paintings are all related to the American Civil War. The exhibition includes portraits of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis as well as a new portrait of John Wilkes Booth.

Over the past few years, Mr. Fried has generously donated oil portraits of Junius B. Booth Sr, Mary Ann Holmes Booth, Edwin Booth, and John Wilkes Booth to Harford County for display at Tudor Hall. Mr. Fried also donated a pen and ink sketch and a watercolor of Tudor Hall, which are also displayed at the Booth's historic home which was purchased by Harford County in 2006.
