CITYWIDE: a collective exhibition

Just wanted to take a moment to give a plug for this Kickstarter. CITYWIDE is a collective exhibition between a lot of great galleries and arts groups that will be taking place throughout Philadelphia in November. There’s only a week to go to, and we still need to raise over $1,000, so this could come down to the wire.

Meeting the goal is important since it will help the project match funds from the Knight Art Challenge, as well as put together an exhibition catalog that will document the participants. In addition, each group participating will receive an honorarium, which will help everyone keep doing good, creative things in the city, if the funding is secured.

For CITYWIDE, BYO Print, the print shop that I’m a member at, will be pairing up with Paradigm Gallery. Jason Chen and Sara McCorriston, the curators at Paradigm, will be doing a month long residency at BYO Print, and the members of BYO Print will be having a curated show at Paradigm in November. In addition, if we secure the honorarium, the funds will go towards helping the print shop complete our lithography studio.

So, needless to say, this is all important, and any support you can give would be greatly appreciated! Let’s keep cool things happening in Philadelphia!

A few quick, loose, almost impressionistic sketches that I made while visiting Bartram’s Garden in southwest Philadelphia. I’m amazed that something like this is even in Philly, it’s almost out of character. But then again, Philly is filled with little gems like this.

Also, I’m a very impatient sketcher. As soon as I start I want to move on to the next drawing. Especially so with trees! I don’t know what to do with all those leaves! As you can imagine, this makes my current body of work…interesting.
