News post – CandyCoated on the move, Peter Morgan, Photo montages at Rowan, and more



Wonderfully timed to coincide with the celebration of all things eccentric , CandyCoated Studio has moved operations! The new warehouse space, featuring a 22+yard long print table and the presence of Wallpaper Residency artists (we will take that designation, please and thank you) and instruction from the incomparable CandyCoated, promises a new bright spot in the city.

Seven of the eight artists selected from the recent ICA Open Video Call to be shown in the ICA’s video lounge area are based in Philadelphia! Meredith Sellers, Christopher Vandegrift, Zenas Hutcheson, John Emison, Tara White, Bonnie Begusch (based partly in CA), Paul Salveson, Kris Harzinski and Will Haughery are this years’ picks.

Fleisher/Ollman Gallery is a participant in the Outsider Art Fair 2013: Paris, held October 24-27, 2013 at the Hotel Le A. Visit them, if you’re in Paris of course, in room #602. The fair is open Friday 11:00 – 8:00, Saturday 11:00 – 8:00, and Sunday 12:00 – 6:00. The artists showing are Emery Blagdon, James Castle, Felipe Jesus Consalvos, Julian Martin, Philadelphia Wireman, Martin Ramirez / Eugene Von Bruenchenhein. There’s also a program of talks at Hotel Le A on Friday and Saturday morning, hosted by the American Folk Art Museum, New York.

Stephen Perloff of the Photo Review is hosting a show at Rowan. Extended Realities, featuring  photographers who work with montage, runs until November 16, so you’ve got plenty of time to catch it.


Eco-friendly Fashion, kicking off December 16 and running through February 21, 2014, is seeking to bring ingenious, sustainable wearables to the Art Gallery at City Hall and display cases. They’re looking for works that address the issues of sustainability and eco-consciousness in the context of fashion, with a wide range of possible uses of sustainable materials for art, clothing or designs.  Juried by Joan K. Smith, submissions are due November 22 , 2013 by 4 pm. Call (215) 686-9912 or email for additional info.

SVA has launched a new MA Curatorial Practice Department, headed up by Steven Henry Madoff. Starting in 2014, applications are being accepted now. Additionally, Madoff is organizing the program’s first international curatorial summit on November 2, so they’ve got a lot on deck.
