Speed, Still, Sway with Justin Bursk

Justin Bursk wind up art. Sailing mountains.
Saturday, May 16, 2015
Friday, June 26, 2015

Justin Bursk’s works are blatantly, playfully homemade.  His work is the work of a tinkerer, exploring through doing.  Where Price is rapid-fire crisp, and Manuse slow and poetic, Bursk is improvisatory, a series of “what-if” scenarios played out on his visual stage.

Also in this show  Mark Price, Joe Manuse 

Mount Airy Contemporary’s programming has focused on providing low key, high quality art experiences in an informal residential setting to northwest Philadelphia audiences.
