Open Spaces: An Art in the Open Exhibition

June 16, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Nine artists extend our art gallery on to the trails this summer, with installations including string and ribbon sculptures which transform natural places and meditation shelters.  Each installation creates a new space to reflect on our relationship with the world around us and opens up insights on the artistic process.  These works, both indoors and on the trails, were created last May along the Schuylkill Banks as part of Art in the Open, a public art program inspiring new ways of seeing the Schuylkill River and the city it runs through.

During Art in the Open, artists spent three days creating works in public, their creative process visible to the thousands who pass through the Schuylkill Banks each day.  At the reception, we’ll offer artist talks and light refreshments in the gallery, along with a guided walk to the outdoor installations.  Art in the Open is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with the urban environment.  Exhibition on view: June 1 – July 25.

­Open Spaces is the last in a series of Art in the Open exhibitions held from summer 2014 through summer 2015 at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, the University City Arts League, and the Schuylkill Center.

Open Spaces features work by Nancy Agati, Harry Bower, Ellen Brooks, Josh Harris, Aaron Lish, Pazia Mannella, Sandy Sorlien, Susan Wilson, and Wendy Wolf.
