kiss by Danielle Bursk, artist
May 11 September 10, 2015

Danielle Bursk's art is about accumulation and connection, concentrating primarily in drawing/painting and performance/video. She is known for her large-scale abstract ink drawings. Her work is primarily abstract and incremental; the accumulation of many small lines creating abstract forms that are suggestive of objects or landscapes. She relates her drawings to many things: nests, networks, webs, traps, nets, hair, vines, space, maps and more. Danielle's work speaks to the inter-connectivity of actions and associations.

drawingaday project iPhone drawings by Stella Untalan
June 5 July 31, 2015

365+1 #drawingaday is a digital drawing-a-day project.

365 + 1, is the result of a drawing-a-day project — a daily constancy in drawing.  Experimenting with a foreign surface and unfamiliar tools, Stella drew with sketch software on her iPhone. A step outside the studio and away from the comfort of familiar, analog tools.

Justin Bursk wind up art. Sailing mountains.
May 16 June 26, 2015

Justin Bursk’s works are blatantly, playfully homemade.  His work is the work of a tinkerer, exploring through doing.  Where Price is rapid-fire crisp, and Manuse slow and poetic, Bursk is improvisatory, a series of “what-if” scenarios played out on his visual stage.

Also in this show  Mark Price, Joe Manuse 

Mount Airy Contemporary’s programming has focused on providing low key, high quality art experiences in an informal residential setting to northwest Philadelphia audiences.
