Featuring more than two dozen works by 11 New Jersey art students aged 12-17, some of whom will be on hand for the exhibit, Art Effect will introduce Philadelphians to a new direction in art education. The free, pop-up, one-day-only exhibit answers the question,“What happens when teen artists are immersed in a unique six-month studio residency program that provides them with dedicated work space, unlimited materials, and access to world-class art educators?"
Drawing on techniques established by the futurists, lyricalwars injects the technologies and aesthetics of social media into the poetics of the written word, blurring the boundaries between the spoken and the read, the poet and the audience, and the the poem and the performance.
They work in new media, photography, poetry, sculpture and sound. They use minimalism as a form of protest. They abstract, exploring themes of death, disaster, loss and unrest. They manipulate ambiguous forms to ask existential and rhetorical questions.

Balancing a huge pool of talent with close-knit camaraderie, Greater Philadelphia is a welcoming home for any artist. As members of the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center will tell you, it’s an even better place to be a photographer. To celebrate the talent within our community, PPAC is thrilled to present our annual Members Exhibition. As always, this survey of regional photographers will welcome a diverse array of photographic themes and subject matter.
Please join us for a conversation between artist Alexandra Gorczynski, whose exhibition 'Vanity Theater' is on display through June 18, and Lindsay Howard, a New York-based curator and expert in the field of Post-Internet Art. They will discuss Gorczynski's multidisciplinary practice, which began with a degree in painting from RISD, then viral internet fame with her blog 'Hologram City', and now her current body of work which examines the female form through digital painting and video. Among topics that will be explored: feminism in the age of webcams, DIY culture, and strategies for presenting, collecting, and displaying online-only artworks.
Alexandra Gorczynski is internationally recognized as among the most influential young artists from the post-Internet art phenomenon. Using digital techniques to layer paint, photographs, moving images, and even physical screens, she redefines both the haptic boundaries of the painterly medium as well as the potential for formalism in the age of the ethereal image. Gorczynski’s practice utilizes technology to push color to new heights of animation. Her most recent works fuse this technological ultra-vision with the art historical, placing time beside itself and re-framing bodies in surreal and glamorous tableaux.
Andrea Hornick is artist and shaman, borrowing from the roles of art historian, curator, and museum guide. She is informed by the history of painting, the economics of collecting, the politics of reproduction, historiography, post-feminism, and shamanism. Hornick paints in the pristine, lush fashion of old master workshops, in a practice rooted in text and performance that expands into audio. Her work takes the form of careful reproductions of Renaissance portraiture with the addition of the sitter's spirit animal. The animals are found through a shamanic drumming practice that Hornick learned in childhood. Journeys is an exhibition both seen and experienced, an immersive installation that seeks to reclaim and restructure traditional signifiers of authority and authorship.
NICOLE DYER & DAVE EASSA
A CONVERSATION ON THE ARTIST'S WORK
IN THE 'WIDE EYED EXHIBITION
SAVERY Gallery is thrilled to present a Two-Person Exhibition opening in February 2016. WIDE EYED is an up close and personal exhibition of new paintings and sculpture by Baltimore Artists Nicole Dyer and Dave Eassa.
WIDE EYED catalogues the trials and nuances of waking up every day to do the same damn thing; at times humorous, at times heart wrenching, but always relatable. With striking, highly developed personal visual languages, Nicole Dyer and Dave Eassa lay it on thick, posing questions and pouring out their feelings like paint into nakedly autobiographical bodies of work.

The array of Jazz photos included in the collection were accrued directly from the archives of Metronome, one of the publishing world’s late great music magazines.

A special walk-through of the exhibit and Artist Talk. Jessica Hans speaks about the exhibit 'Cones Look Like Cowled Monks' : her work, her process, and the collaboration with Miranda Pfeiffer.
Talk will begin at 7 PM.
‘Cones Look Like Cowled Monks’ is an ongoing collaboration between Miranda Pfeiffer and Jessica Hans, inspired by the natural forms of Pasha Baja in Turkey, which are said to look like cowled monks. This collection of graphite drawings, textiles, hand drawn animation and ceramics describe organic forms explored through excavation and touch.
NIGHT KITCHEN Presents: SEE//STRAIGHT//THROUGH, an evening of time-based, sonic, and illuminated works and discussion with the artists around the theme of CLARITY.
NEW SIGHT carries a message that beauty exists under our feet in places we have passed by many times, and have looked at before but have never really seen. And the show also emphasizes the truth that artists have an essential role in our cities - being most often the ones to see this beauty in the worn and broken first, and to translate that message to the world through their work and the cultivation of their environments.
