Delivered the work for my show at the Philadelphia Art Alliance last week and took a few shots after the paintings were installed. The Art Alliance's walls are very different from the more common gallery space I'm used to seeing my work hung in. The walls are covered in a tan-colored fabric that has a softer feel and look than the usual flat white walls of most galleries. The wall-covering is due to the Art Alliance being housed in a mansion on Rittenhouse Square that dates back to 1906. It's a great place to see comtemporary work just for the seemingly incongruous setting.
My exhibition, titled, Stratum, consists of 9 paintings, 8 of which were done specifically for this show. Stratum will be on view at the Art Alliance from Thursday, September 20-December 30, 2007. The opening reception is this Thursday, September 20th from 5:30-7:30pm.
