August 3 – September 21, 2019

Closing Reception & Talk: Thursday, September 12, 5-8 PM
A curated archive of Woolard's past works, this exhibition provides viewers an introduction to the artist's processes around creating dialogue through interaction. Focused on improving communication and group dynamics, the artist creates objects that are meant to be handled, used and shared in order to facilitate a better understanding of interpersonal skills like listening, attention, and communication—her goal is to celebrate collective capacities for care and respectful debate. Caroline Woolard is the first recipient of the Jane and David Walentas Endowed Fellowship, a prestigious award that underscores Moore’s ongoing commitment to social engagement by offering opportunities to thoughtful artists who bring their vision for the future of cultural production to the Moore community and the larger artistic community of Philadelphia.



September 28 – December 7, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, September 27, 5:30-8 PM

Or Both is an experimental two-part exhibition that includes a solo presentation of work by Ulrike Müller alongside a group show of works by Martin Beck, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Jennie C. Jones, Eric N. Mack, Medrie MacPhee, Dona Nelson, and Deborah Remington. Moving in and out of painting, Müller employs a range of materials, techniques, and image formats including drawing, enamel on steel, collage, monotype, and woven wool rugs. Taking Müller's practice as a point of departure, the group show is organized around compositional strategies and methods of decision making rather than around a shared subject matter or theme, opening up new possibilities for reading artworks together that might not seem immediately connected. Organized by Mia Locks.

Lecture and Gala: Wednesday, October 2
The Galleries at Moore are pleased to honor this year's three Visionary Women Awardees: Jill Bonovitz, artist; June Kelly, gallerist; and Paula Scher, graphic artist with presence in the fall exhibition season. Since 2003, the Visionary Woman Awards (VWA) has recognized outstanding women leaders who have made a powerful impact on the worlds of art and design—through our VWA scholarship program, Moore supports the extraordinary achievements of women who provide powerful role models for our students. A selection of Bonovitz's wire sculptures and porcelain vessels will be on view in Wilson Gallery. Graham Gallery will feature posters and design projects from Scher's portfolio, along with interviews and ephemera celebrating Kelly's more than thirty year's as a gallerist who represents over thirty artists.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 24, 5:30-8 PM

Three solo shows by emerging Philadelphia artists represent the range of materials, experiences and backgrounds that our community of creative thinkers embody. Responding to the prompt, "how do you perceive yourself as an artist-curator?" these artists create individual gallery experiences that speak to their artistic practices and together, the exhibition invites viewers to consider the diversity of processes through which contemporary works by emerging artists are realized. Exhibiting artists: Shona McAndrew, Matt Osborn, and Stacey Lee Webber.
