Super local

Ed Bronstein
San Miguel Church, by Ed Bronstein, was painted ‘en plein air” in San Miguel (Mexico) in 2004.

My friend Ed Bronstein got some recognition for this as Best Landscape at the Philadelphia Sketch Club’s 144th Annual Exhibition of Small Oils.

Frank Hyder on a roll

Another Philadelphia and Projects Gallery artist, Frank Hyder, has a solo show up right now in New York. “If the Oceans Don’t Make It, How Will We?” is at Walter Wickiser Gallery in Chelsea until April 25. Hyder has another solo show, Lost World, here in Philadelphia at La Salle University, a multi-media installation, April 13-June 15.

And finally, Projects will be traveling to Chicago to participate in the Bridge Art Fair as part of the Artropolis being staged by Art Chicago. The fairs run April 26 to 30. I am mentioning this because Projects is a repeat customer at the Chicago art fairs, and I figure some other Philly gallery might like to take note.
