News   A special shout out from us to Blaise Tobia for reminding us about what’s coming to this Second Friday (Sept 12).

News post – Polly Apfelbaum in Hudson NY, Ultra Violet archive unveiled, Gallery Joe’s good reads, opportunities and more!

News Today is a banner day for Warholians everywhere: candid conversations with Andy Warhol and original songs by Ultra Violet are being released as a 2-disc collection, bringing the crazed sentiment of the 60’s to life in a sprawling archive. Ultra Violet’s constant recordings of Warhol’s contemporaries were lost to time until November 2013, when Refinersfire began the process of digitizing the 67 reel to reel tapes. Forget beaches and bonfires, Penn senior Kimberly Schreiber’s summer is all about academe: reconciling identity formation, individualism, and virtual and ephemeral art in China. This is no easy task, given the frequent difficulty ... More » »

Interview with the artist — Mia Rosenthal’s plans for her Leonore Annenberg Fellowship

[Rachel sits down with artist Mia Rosenthal, who recently wrapped her second solo show and has big plans for her just-awarded career development grant. — the artblog editors] What would I do if I could do anything? What is it that I really want to do? That is what Mia Rosenthal has been asking herself since applying for a 2014 Leonore Annenberg Fellowship. As fellowship winners were announced this week, Rosenthal became one of seven recipients of a $50,000 career development grant awarded by the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Funds. The award comes at the end of her second solo show, ... More » »

News post – Florcy Morriset wins Haitian honor, Serena Perrone visits San Francisco, words with Ryan Trecartin, opportunities and more!

News Florcy Morriset received a pivotal award last week when she was honored by Haitian Roundtable. Haitian American to Watch in the United States., indeed –  it’s phenomenal to see Florcy’s work with Haitian Professionals of Philadelphia and Vivant Art Collection get some extremely visible love. Nathaniel Popkin’s resistance to the rather unimaginative design for the Museum of the American Revolution has a couple of fronts going: he recently wrote about it in the Inquirer, and in the spirit of fun this week, he wrote “A Declaration of Architectural Independence” to drum up support from Philadelphians, and to show the Art Commission that there could and ...

Mia Rosenthal, "MacBook Pro (Scott)."

Mia Rosenthal takes it one day at a time at Gallery Joe

[Chip explains the subject of a series by artist Mia Rosenthal: the subtle connections between our lives on Earth and the bigger, cosmic picture. — the artblog editors] What on earth do space, pizza, MacBooks, and evolution have in common? Well, frankly, not an awful lot. Despite their apparently arbitrary assortment, Mia Rosenthal draws together all of these elements and populates Gallery Joe with them for her solo show A Little Bit Every Day, which is as conceptually unexpected as it is painstakingly crafted. By illustrating what we know directly from our daily lives (laptops, phones, and Google searches) and pairing that ... More » »

February – Cold outside but hot inside, a belated First Friday photo post

First Friday started early for Libby and me with a trip to the Perelman Building at the PMA with Collab board president Vesna Todorovicz Sacks, who showed us the Collab 2013 Design Excellence Award show of Australian designer Marc Newson.  Not only is the work a delight — playful, colorful, sleek and clean, the design of the show itself is very cool.  Like an exploded 3D version of a model home, the show features a garage with a Ford Concept Car, a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and bath–a highly engaging little pad to dream yourself into. The Australian designer, ... More » »

Small-scale fantasy drawings at Gallery Joe

(Maegan appreciates the intricacies of several ink-on-paper works, and considers how an artist might choose to let go of her work. — the artblog editors) Showing this month at Gallery Joe is Astrid Bowlby’s Sample (d)(r).  The artist has chosen to display 15 sets of two drawings each.  The drawings are barely discernibly different from one another and are composed of ink and mixed media.  Only one of the drawings from each set is for sale: the buyer’s choice. Bowlby will keep the drawing that remains from each set. Letting go after creating Bowlby says, “The title of the exhibition, ... More » »

Abstract and corporeal – Allyson Strafella’s studyline at Gallery Joe

(Maegan’s review talks about Allyson Strafella’s two bodies of work at Gallery Joe and finds them both evocative of visual note-taking and the private language of journaling.–the artblog editors) Allyson Strafella’s studyline at Gallery Joe features a collection of drawings of the traditional sort and those of a less traditional method.  Strafella’s trademark is her typed drawings, typically composed of numerous punctuation marks typed together in such a way as to create an image.  Aesthetically, I responded to the works’ abstraction and texture.  As a writer, I felt connected to her work on a deeper level; it is familiar, like a well-filled ...

Odili D. Odita, next to his work.

News post – Adieu to Coalition Ingenu & 3rd Ward, Odili Odita at Jack Shainman Gallery, opportunities and more!

News Coalition Ingenu is closing, with their (possibly) last show in Philly opening tonight. In less than two months, Bullock and company are moving to Florida, with hopes of the Coalition Ingenu Self-taught Artists’ Collective eventually picking up again. Featuring nine artists, the final show is called Autodidactic Ingenuism, and, rather appropriately, takes place at the Magic Gardens, where self-taught visionary Isaiah Zagar created his best known work. The opening reception is today, October 11 from 6 – 9 pm, at the Philadelphia Magic Gardens, and it runs until Friday, November 15. We were startled earlier this week to learn ... More » »
