ROCHELLE LEVY: BY THE SEA

June 4 – September 2, 2022

This exhibition marks the fourth in an ongoing series that explores the prolific work of alum Rochelle F. Levy '79. Known for her depictions of equestrian tableaus, peaceful seaside moments, and beaches populated with an ever-changing ensemble cast of characters, Levy has been painting picturesque scenes from her life and travels for more than fifty years. From Margate, New Jersey to Deauville, a seaside resort in northwestern France, these works give viewers a sense of escape, allowing an imaginative departure from the responsibilities of everyday life. These selections were created between 1984-2022 and demonstrate Levy’s endless exploration of her favorite subject matter.

SKÄL /ɧɛːl/ FOR WEAVING

June 3 – September 10, 2022

SKÄL /ɧɛːl/ for Weaving uses the art of weaving as a practical method to think through relations of power in contemporary society. SKÄL /ɧɛːl/ for Weaving is the culmination of Nathalie Wuerth and Anamaya Farthing-Kohl's residency at RAIR in Northeast Philadelphia. The project features everyday objects that the artists found in the waste stream and incorporated into a large-scale weaving made specifically for the window gallery space. Wuerth and Farthing-Kohl approach this technique both as a craft and method to think through a series of inquiries around the intersection of their individual studio practices.

RINGS!

Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, humans have adorned their fingers with ornamental jewelry. From signifying one's marital status to protecting the wearer from forces of evil, rings have served practical, symbolic and decorative purposes throughout history and across cultures. On view June 5 - July 17, 2021 RINGS! offered a glimpse into the boundless creative freedom revealed within the ring form. Featuring work from Australia, Austria, England, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States, this international selection brings together over one hundred rings that demonstrate the artists’ wide-ranging expressions through a variety of aesthetic and conceptual ideas. From the traditional techniques of metalsmithing to avant-garde materials and approaches, the rings on view will offer a new examination of the cultural, political, and personal meanings of the ring itself. RINGS! was organized by Helen Drutt and researched by Elizabeth Essner with assistance from Colleen Terrell.
