Submit your winter photos by February 27!
More about Frost:
It is safe to say, this has been a winter of surprises, with temperatures plummeting well below what we usually expect for this region and snowfall far above. This cold is actually at the heart of our upcoming exhibition, Frost. We’re thrilled to welcome two Philadelphia artists to take on winter with a show that runs from February 15 – April 18. Amie Potsic and Nancy Agati delve into the meaning of winter through a mixture of photography, sculpture, and drawing. An opening reception on March 1 at 4 pm offers a chance for the public to see the artwork and meet the artists.
In winter, patterns emerge from the harsh relief of cold temperatures and heavy snow which illuminate the relationship between us and the changing environment we live in. Potsic explains, “I find winter to be particularly seductive as it simultaneously highlights the stark beauty of our environment’s dormant cycle while hinting at the potential growth of spring.” Agati’s work, exploring the ephemeral through use of natural materials, emphasizes the cyclical patterns of the natural world. Agati writes eloquently about the details that are highlighted by winter: “Working in the studio while the snow falls – again. Linear patterns are further defined as I notice the stark contrast of branches against a pallid backdrop.”
Now, it’s your turn to be a part of it: Take your camera outdoors and capture this remarkable winter!
