Discovering the work of Catherine O’Connell.

We liked her paintings when L G Tripp showed them last year. In this works on paper show Catherine O’Connell has only a few small and intriguing works. Go and see them.

Street Chair, new photographs by Anne Saint Peter

ARTIST RECEPTION Friday, February 3, 2012 5 — 8 pm
EXHIBITION Friday, January 6, 2012 Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Street Chairs.  It doesn’t matter what city or country, or whether you’re walking or driving by.  They indulge us for a respite. We oblige and pause to contemplate their scene.  We become a part of it. And because they are different, they evoke a sense of fun in us.

Special Philadelphia Open Studio Tour Performances by Jessica Hoffman at 110 CHURCH gallery

Consider the connection/disconnection between memory and discarded artifacts of communication. If old letters, photographs, or videos are connected to past events in our lives — what happens when they are discarded or lost? Hoffman uses obsessive or meditative actions to explore how we classify, organize, and recall the contexts and memories attached to these orphaned objects.

This exhibition comprises three works of conceptual and performance art: Slideshow, Talent Show, and Dear Mad, I really like your hair today! Love, Johnny

Seen and Liked : Out of Context at Grizzly Grizzly.

Out of Context Skye Gilkerson & Sarah Steinwachs   We found a wonderfully curated show at Grizzly Grizzly. You’ve only a few more days to see it. The works of  artists Skye Gilkerson and Sarah Steinwachs compliment each other in scale and in craft. Both artists embrace the absence of mass in delightfully different ways.  Skye Gilkerson’s removes typography from it’s literary place, out of context, to create discrete marks that dance across space. Sarah Steinwachs adds mass to empty space with layer after layer of cut out nets.

Seen and Liked : One Part Plaster, Shirley Thomas

One Part Plaster New Mixed-Media Sculpture August 31 – October 2, 2011   You wouldn’t even know this work was in the gallery from the street. A big surprise in small packages can be found in the back half of 3rd Street Gallery. Seemingly scattered the hidden gems are earthy hold-in-the-palms-of-your-hand sized sculptures. We love the simple stacked forms and an occasional foreign object attached to the stone, wood, or one part plaster. The work is delightful you’ll want to take at least one home with you.

Anne Saint Peter: Wall of Women Project

The Wall of Women (WoW) is an ongoing project conceived by Philadelphia photographer / artist, Anne Saint Peter, to honor the many talented women of all disciplines in the Arts.

Begun in the fall of 2008, the project includes black and white analog portraits of over 100 artistic women, including the visual arts, poetics, music and dance.  The intent is to showcase the many talented women in the arts – an often overlooked group.

“The project will go on forever,” says Saint Peter, “a kind of Judy Chicago ‘Dinner Party’ that just keeps evolving.”
