During the fall of each year, The Gallery at Delaware County Community College selects an accomplished artist or curator to jury 215 | 610 CONTEMPORARY, an annual juried exhibition showcasing regional emerging artists living in and around the Philadelphia area. Philadelphia is a known breeding ground for the arts offering multiple graduate programs that shape multitudes of young professional artists each year. Many of these artists continue to live and work in the region. The purpose of this juried exhibition is to showcase local emerging contemporary artists, create a platform for critical discourse through an exchange of ideas, and to push the boundaries of an age-old practice. In addition to the exhibition, we invite the Juror to lecture about their personal work and practice. The artist lecture is open to the public and is typically presented in the large auditorium, funded by the Communication, Arts & Humanities Division at Delaware County Community College. We highly encourage members of the community and beyond to attend the artist lecture followed by the art opening in an effort to provide a space to learn, observe, and experience critical issues within contemporary art.
