A dose of inspiration: Blossoming by Kathy Davis

Philadelphia’s First Friday is a wonderful cultural event that has been hosted by the Old City Arts Association since 1991. On the First Friday of each month dozens of Old City galleries open their doors to the public from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. The “open house” vibe attracts a wide variety of viewers from casual browsers to serious buyers. Each month we will be featuring an exhibition that we find particularly unique and inspiring. This month’s featured exhibition is “divergent AFFINITIES” at the Wexler Gallery.

Wexler gallery is proud to present, a group exhibition organized by Barbara Harberger, Director of Arts and Collections at the Philadelphia based firm Marguerite Rodgers ltd. The exhibition will run from January 7 through February 26, 2011.
 An opening will take place First Friday, January 7 from 5 – 8 pm.

Featured artists include Jaq Belcher, Marietta Hoferer, Gudrun Mertes-Frady, Susan Schwalb, Karen Margolis, Michael Kukla, Ilene Sunshine and Viviane Rombaldi Seppey.

Linked by a strong connection to process and concept, the show will focus on eight mid-career and established artists whose explorations can be viewed as meditative in nature. Working in a variety of methods, the show includes painting, sculpture, and “drawing” that incorporates both traditional and nontraditional materials. Each artist’s personal, introspective approach to their work begs the viewer to become contemplative while considering the final work.
