Arcadia Works

Talk about a big show…sixty artists were chosen (from 900 entries) for the biennial Works on Paper show up at Arcadia University Art Gallery. Read the list.

Always a good venue for local artists, work will be up as of Jan. 16 with the opening reception on Jan 29. From the names I recognized, I’d say it’ll be a mix old and new Philadelphia — from traditionalists (Charles Schmidt) to young hipsters (Rob Matthews, M. Ho, Clint Takeda). (image is detail from Matthews’ series “Holy Smokes” which you may remember from the “Greater Philadelphia” exhibit a couple years ago.)

It’ll be interesting to see how the show hangs together in the small space.

Prior to the reception on the 29th, this year’s WOP juror, Jordan Kantor, Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings at MOMA, will give a lecture on new trends in drawing. The lecture starts at 6:30 p.m.
