Of That Time, Of that Place at Pentimenti Gallery

Added on by Erin Murray.

I'm honored to be showing this month at a gallery I have always admired with a fantastic group of artists: Ted  Larsen, Andrea Wolfensberger and Robert Younger. The exhibition at Pentimenti Gallery in Old City (145 N. 2nd St)  is open now through February 18, with a reception on Friday February 3 from 6-8. 

(In)finite Gardens at Delicious Spectacle

Added on by Erin Murray.

Opening this Friday November 8 from 7-10. A fantastic looking group show at Delicious Spectacle, a unique house gallery in DC. From the press release:

The work of these five artists relates to and addresses ideas of habitat, environment, the natural, notions of the sublime, and home. The concept of a garden serves as a helpful frame for viewing the diverse works collected in this show. Generally speaking, a garden is a demarcated space that is tended to and cared for, which also includes elements of the natural. An odd zone that is both artificial and natural. In this way, the work in this show can be said to look at the world, through the lens of a garden. That is say, the world is no longer considered infinite, but evenly proportioned and tended to by differing populations and forces. The artists’ lenses vary, some offer more optimistic visions of the future, others less so. [In]finite Gardens serves to raise questions about our current relationship and understanding to one of our most shared experiences and resources, the land.

Fort Thunder Attaks! and CITYWIDE exhibitions

Added on by Erin Murray.

One of the most exciting things to happen to the Philly art scene is coming up this November: CITYWIDE. Over twenty artist collectives will participate in an exchange of exhibitions, ideas and practices. The multi-venue exhibit will be located in different neighborhoods throughout the city.

My own artist collective, Vox Populi, is trading spaces with Space 1026 for the month, where we've offered to recreate one of their seminal shows, Fort Thunder Attaks! The now legendary Fort Thunder was a warehouse and art collective based in Providence RI in the late 90s known for underground noise music, art and communal living, hosting countless shows, wrestling matches, halloween mazes and the like. 

Our own recreation of the 1026 exhibit will include wrestling, costumes, forts, and lots of noise (and much more!) in homage to Fort Thunder and the collective spirit. Check out our inspirational tumblr for a taste, and definitely join us on Friday November 8 from 6-11 for the main (noisy, sweaty, costumed) event. The show will be on view from Nov 1-30.

Made In Philly and Philadelphia Open Studio Tours

Added on by Erin Murray.

In conjunction with the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours, you can catch my work at the Berks El Station, on the Market-Frankford Line, during the months of September and October. The Made in Philly project aims to show work in close proximity to where it was made. In my case, just seven blocks away!  

Please check out my studio during the tour on October 5-6 from 12-6 pm. Bonus: it's the only studio on the tour behind a kickass record store

 1524 Frankford Ave, first floor rear
