Event Name: Magnifica Terra
Date(s): 09/05/2017 - 10/27/2017
18 East Lancaster Avenue, Ardmore, PA 19003
Details: Artist appreciation and interpretations of our awe-inspiring surroundings, both natural and man-made. The landscape as a subject for painters has been long standing favorite. For some it is the engaging experience on being surrounded by their muse, for others it is a longing for a distant place while diligently working in a controlled space. Paintings of the space we inhabit and have yet to visit speak volumes to the relationship we have with the greater world, it’s humbling while intimate. We are part of something synergistic, a cycle, a constant change. Part of the greatness of capturing a scene is that it is eternally secured, now a moment in time encapsulated and celebrated for others to enjoy beyond that which happened just once.   This collection of works give a not only an appreciation for the skill and talents of the artists but an opportunity for the viewers to look through a unique lens at something glorious and yet often taken for granted.

Event Name: Happily Ever After
Date(s): 10/02/2017 - 10/29/2017
746 Panmure Road, Haverford, PA 19041
Details: DESIGNPHILADELPHIA Featured Event Happily Ever After investigates the female gaze, modern femininity, and contemporary challenges to women’s rights. These women artists address the human experience through a female lens in the 21st century – a post-feminist era rife with demands for a new feminism. Addressing pre-pubescent characters, trans and female identities, emotionally-charged language, and complex female forms, a single definition of woman is defied. In today’s fairytale, Cinderella is breaking the glass slipper and “happily ever after” remains elusive.   Curated by Amie Potsic, Executive Director & Chief Curator at Main Line Art Center, the exhibition features work by artists Aubrie Costello, Jenny Drumgoole, Jes Gamble, Erica Zoë Loustau, Mari Ogihara, Glynnis Reed, and Emily Smith. A FREE artist talk will be held on Friday, Oct. 13, from 5:30 – 6:30 pm, followed by an opening reception from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Existential © Emily Smith
