SAVE THE DATE!!! FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

Join us as we celebrate the opening of our fall exhibitions! Featured artists include Andrea Baldeck, Kay Healy, Nick Lenker, Sophia Narrett, Erin M. Riley and Ursula Von Rydingsvard. All of our shows are presented in conjunction with CraftNow, a citywide biennial celebrating Philadelphia’s rich legacy in craft and promoting the city’s continuing role as an incubator for arts based in fiber, wood, clay, metal, glass and more. 
 

Narrative Horizons

September 16 – December 9, 2017
This exhibition presents the work of three women—Kay Healy, Sophia Narrett and Erin Riley—whose contemporary studio practices are heavily influenced by traditions steeped in functional craft and the handmade. Emphasizing each artist's dedication to varying fiber-based and textile-derivative techniques, Narrative Horizons examines the ambiguous line that both unites and divides fine art and craft, and demonstrates how these artists utilize conventional processes to create meticulously constructed imagery surrounding female identity.
 

BODY WoRKS

September 16 – December 9, 2017

Body Works is a symposium of performances, workshops, and collaborative projects that will examine the body as both material and tool in contemporary performance. Including practices of dance, theatre, costume, and sound Body Works brings together a diverse group of Philadelphia artists who use their bodies to engage viewers with their craft and create new spaces for social action, dialogue, and representation. For this presentation, The Levy Gallery for the Arts in Philadelphia will be transformed into a multi-use performance space where the lines between viewer and performer will become blurred and where audience participation directly informs the artists' processes.

 

Nick Lenker: Recreation

"The First Person"

September 16, 2017 – January 6, 2018

Philadelphia artist Nick Lenker addresses the complexities of dealing with identity and intimacy within virtual/digital spaces. Through exploring voyeurism and performance of self, Lenker transforms the gallery space into a narrative environment that tells the story of a character whose world is rendered through three-dimensional, digital modeling software and whose existence is the sum of the objects he collects through his journeys.

September 9 – November 11, 2017

We are pleased to honor both Visionary Women Awardees Andrea Baldeck and Ursula Von Rydingsvard with presence in The Galleries’ fall exhibition season.
