This just in from Heike Rass-Paulmier at Woodmere Art Museum.
More than 600 people attended the opening for the Annual Juried Exhibition and Emerging Artists Series: Christopher Hartshorne and Hiro Sakaguchi at the Woodmere last week. Both shows run through March 4. Admission to the Museum is free. For more information visit or call 215-247-0476.
Hiro Sakaguchi, for his part of the exhibit, recruited 35 artists to participate in his Picture Journal Project a project in which friends and acquaintances of Sakaguchi’s were invited by him to create journals with drawings and words about their everyday happenings last summer. Sakaguchi explained his idea in an email:
Thirty-five artists are involved this project, recruited in an organic process – some are artists I think of frequently, and others I ran into over the months of the project. Every artist has a different background of experience and discipline. Every work is unique and different from the others. Some pages deal with travel experiences. Some call up memories from the artists’ pasts. Some react to events of this moment of our lives. Some simply treat journal paper as a work surface.
Here’s who participated:
Alyse C. Bernstein
Erin Rose Boyle
Nancy M. Sophy
Of course this number (35) has something to do with the above number (600) but who’s counting, really.
