Jeffrey Bischoff, Vice President. Jeff is the owner of Old Greenwich Consultants, a financial services recruiting firm. A graduate of Villanova University (BA, English), Jeff was head of recruiting for the UBS Private Bank after serving as the National Recruiting Officer for Citigroup’s private wealth management division, Smith Barney.
A published author himself, Jeff was moved by the works of Eric Sloane when he was given Eric Sloane’s Diary of An Early American Boy on a trip to Old Sturbridge Village in 1972. Sloane’s stories of early American settlers and their “Yankee ingenuity” inspired him to take up many hobbies that are still drivers in his pursuit of happiness: organic gardening, reading about and exploring stone walls, barns, farms, and American history. Jeff resides in Old Greenwich with his wife and two children.

In honor of the theme established for the Eric Sloane Museum by the staff of the museum and the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum for 2014, here is an example of what Eric Sloane termed a “cloudscape”.  He reasoned that paintings that depicted urban and rural scenes were called “landscapes”, why not call paintings of cloud formations “cloudscapes”?  Image used with permission from Aware: A Retrospective of the Life and Work of Eric Sloane.

Artist at Work

art42Another early photograph at the artist at work. Here Eric Sloane is examining a finished “cloudscape”, a term he claimed to coin for his paintings of just the sky with perhaps a plane flying through the cloud formations. From the photographers perspective, this cloudscape appears quite large, though not uncommon for the period.

Won’t you join with like-minded individuals from across the country who are organizing to help support, preserve, and to promote the Eric Sloane Museum of Kent, Connecticut? We are firm in our belief that Eric Sloane is a national treasure and the museum he founded is an important destination for anyone interested in early American life and culture. Support for the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum can come in many formats:

1. Membership in the Friends organization.
2. Financial support to fund specific projects. The Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum works in concert with the staff at the Eric Sloane Museum to identify projects that need attention. Some projects are very modest in scope (as little as $75.00), while others require greater financial commitment.
3. Volunteer for events and programs held on the grounds of the Eric Sloane Museum.
4. Volunteer your professional expertise.
5. Volunteer to join the board of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum. We are a friendly, inclusive group dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the legacy of Eric Sloane. We meet approximately 6 times per year at the Kent Town Hall in Kent, Connecticut.
