"Unintended Consequences" Exhibition in Philadelphia

dates-print-header.jpg

Landscapes are a physical history of events that shaped them. In this exhibition, Geoffrey Agrons, Diane Burko, Brooke Lanier, Jennifer Manzella, and Ekaterina Popova raise questions about what events transpired that shape our current environment. The poetically unpopulated vistas in this exhibition subtly imply the lingering unintentional effects that humans have had on our planet in the wake of industrialization. Rather than being overly clinical or didactic, these images function as personal experiences of global phenomena.

The show is open to the public Tuesdays through Fridays 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and by appointment. A brunch opening will be held on Saturday, May 5th from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Join us for coffee, muffins, and conversation with the artists.

Fight or Flight Exhibition at The Painting Center

Thursday, June 22, 6 - 8 pm

http://thepaintingcenter.org/exhibitions/fight-or-flight

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that the November 2016 presidential election changed the political landscape forever and touched every U.S. resident in every corner of the country. For The Painting Center’s annual juried exhibition, FIGHT OR FLIGHT, we asked artists how the turbulent political environment has affected their work. Did they become more politically active by fighting—protesting, calling representatives, writing letters or did they retreat into their studios to shut out the frenetic world? Or did they adopt some combination of both approaches?

Looking back to specific artists’ reactions to unsettled times, Picasso’s Guernica and Gerhard Richter’s cycle of paintings October 18,1977 are prime examples of artists channeling the political world into their work. While in contrast, Matisse created his joyful collaged paper cutouts for his Jazz series during World War II in France, and Jackson Pollock’s poured paintings were created in the 1950's during the McCarthy era. Creativity can feed off the inspiration of current events or a personal vision.

We received an outpouring of interesting and timely work, and it is our hope that this selection provides some insight into the psyches of artists responding to the times in which we live in 2017. This exhibition is in no way a comprehensive representation but rather a curated selection of work both political and apolitical. We hope that it provides a starting point for an important conversation.

On These Walls

On These Walls, a display of contemporary painting, highlights the role furniture plays in our lives and our homes. “Artists have included furnishings in their work for years, but viewers often look only at the figures without examining the furnishings that reveal so much,” says exhibit curator, Carol Hill. “Imagine a favorite painting without the familiar chair or desk that makes it so memorable.” This exhibit prods viewers into taking another look at the environment of the painting."
