Art in the Open (AiO) is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with the urban environment.

Philadelphia Artists’ Books Travel to Venice
Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers Members’ Exhibition


Lesley Mitchell’s At the Milonga unfolds in myriad ways to reveal a Buenos Aires dance hall with musicians and dancers, and as the wings of the book open and the folds simultaneously tumble towards the viewer, the perspective brings the heads of joyful or serious participants right up to my face.

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Cynthia Groya’s new Acrylic Abstractions and Large Mixed Media Oil Paintings of Ancient Greek and Contemporary New York Calligraphic Currents. Groya, who exhibits widely and taught for years in Yardley, devised a method of applying pigment to canvas that does not rely on brushes. Instead, she uses small rectangles of matte board to produce painterly effects. She calls this pulling paint, hence the title of her show.

New work by Marjorie Grigonis and Katherine Kurtz at The Knapp Gallery.

Marjorie Grigonis presents her new mixed media work on found mylar, discarded by an architectural firm. The original drawings were varied and abstract, informing the finished pieces. She has allowed much of the underlying work remain.

Katherine Kurtz shows new paintings which continue an exploration of the process. Layers of paint applied, scratched, and manipulated with scratching tools.
