One way to orient oneself is by quiet, sustained looking.
At first glance one sees color and lots of it. The color fields in Gigi Naftzger's paintings create a restfulness that encourages one to linger, to look longer.

Chanthaphone Rajavong, Four Approaches to Paper - An Installation, paper sculpture installation.
The City of Philadelphia’s Art In City Hall exhibition program celebrates its 59th group exhibition for local emerging and professional artists. Paper Works! features the work of 20 Philadelphia area artists working in the medium of paper.
The scale of the installation The Titan and the Fireflies is gigantic, especially when you consider the medium used to create the sculptures – balloons. After seeing this exhibition you'll never think of balloons in the same way. If you have always been amazed by clowns making dogs and hats out of balloons this will be enough to send you into anaphylactic shock.
