Philly artists continue to keep the airlines and buses in business showing work on both coasts and places in between. Here’s the news this week:
Kathryn Pannepacker in New York
Kathryn Pannepacker will speak in New York at the Museum of Art and Design Thursday, April 16 at 6:30 pm in an artist’s talk co-sponsored by the MAD and their magazine American Craft. The talk is free with Thursday night pay as you wish admission. The magazine features Philly’s intrepid multi-culti guerrilla weaver on its cover this month!!!
We met Kathryn, who is also a mural painter, at her new mural at Broad and Lehigh a while back. She’s a one-woman community experience getting ideas and plastic bags for her weavings from passers by. There’s lots of energy in Kathryn’s work and we love her spirit.
Lee Stoetzel in New York
Master conceptual pecky woodworker, Lee Stoetzel, whom we are now claiming as ours because he lives nearby now, is having a solo show at Mixed Greens, April 23-May 23. Opening is Thursday, April 23, 6-8 pm.
Mining suburbia, Stoetzel’s new project includes gutters and downspouts blocked by fallen leaves.
Hunter Stabler in Los Angeles
On the other coast, Hunter Stabler appears in an all-paper show at L.A. Space, organized by Scion and curated by Giant Robot.
