For this exhibition, Abington Art Center is taking inspiration from our Little Abington Meeting House, located by the corner of Alverthorpe Park. Silence is a key characteristic of the Quaker religion: in that silence, to reflect. Reflection is also a physical characteristic, a surface effect – a bending back that encompasses the physical or metaphysical and may include an ethical call.
We're happy to anounce that Philadelphia painter Keith Breitfeller has launched his portfolio with Heavy Bubble. His abstract paintings are meditative and atmospheric.
We're excited to launch the portfolio website for artist Kevin Broad. We hope you'll visit his site and spend some time looking at his body of work. He has recently returned for a Residency in Iceland.
Quizás Mañana (Maybe Tomorrow), is a body of new work that examines the power of familial connection, place, and story. This exhibition features a new installation, light boxes, and paintings that speak of “visual artifacts,” items that Michelle sees imbued by the characteristics of the person who used them.
Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is devoted to the study, practice and appreciation of contemporary photography. They offer classes and workshops, fine art printing services and the option to create work in their Artist Lab, exhibitions and lectures.
Two artists will win concurrent solo exhibitions December 8 2017 - February 17 2018

"Until the case was closed they could not be certain which way to jump, whether they should cry out that they were martyrs, or remain what, at heart, of course, they were, simple citizens, bitter against outrage and anxious to see justice done and the health of the state preserved."
– James Baldwin, Giovanni’s Room 1956
A national juried exhibition focusing on the ways we are responding to the changing political climate and the world around us.
