It seems it was difficult, but not impossible, to slip anything by Albert C. Barnes. The Barnes Foundation has discovered two previously unknown sketches by Paul Cézanne that even its founder might have never been aware of, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The two works were found on the backs of two watercolors when the pieces were taken down for conservation a year ago. Totally unmentioned in any correspondence and not included in the master compendium of Cézanne’s works, are on the backs of two watercolors that are permanently hung in the foundation’s galleries on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

The Architectural League of New York has awarded ISA Architects of Philly a place in their annual Emerging Voices lecture series. Featuring  founder Brian Phillips of ISA the series spotlights highly influential and distinctive designers and firms based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico. Brian Phillips founded Philadelphia-based  in 2004; although focused primarily on housing, ISA does a broad range of work in Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago, as well as speculative projects for cities nation-wide. Congratulations to ISA!

The Guerilla Outdoor Performance Festival, headed by Beth Heinly, is almost here! Taking place in the Underground Pedestrian Concourse of Center City, Philadelphia PA on Saturday March 7 & Saturday March 14, during the maelstrom that is St. Patrick’s Day (or week?). Check out the online map for the events for a sense of what is going down.

A bit of DIY advice is never unwelcome. Fortunately, Roberta wrote an essay for the Moore College blog on the very subject, as it pertains to woman artists!

Opportunities

Attention, animators –  an upcoming project at the Brandywine Workshop needs you. The Workshop is applying for a NEA proposal, for their Digital Portal Project. This is a two-week workshop in summer 2016 with undergraduate college interns; its two-part goal is to spark interest in disadvantaged students of color in careers in visual technologies and create/develop instructional tools to be made available free on the digital portal web site. The themes of the animations are:  Visualizing Mathematics and The Science of Printmaking. Animators and their interns work with local artists or from existing art works in the Brandywine Collection. Anticipated length is 4-6 minutes each. The Workshop is submitting an application to the NEA in the next few weeks, followed by other sources, and requires bios and 2-3 samples of your past work. They have helpfully included some links to some examples of animations that are similar to what we are looking for in the candidates; Ted Edu is a good starting point, as is a campaign by the Detroit Institute of the Arts. For more info, contact Allen Edmunds at 215.546.3675 or aedmunds@brandywineworkshop.com.
