The Plastic Club’s building is closed due to the Coronavirus quarantine, but the Club’s exhibition schedule resumes in June, with an online look at the work produced over a lifetime by member Sam Dion.
Over a career spanning eight decades, Dion made illustrations for magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies, fashion labels, pharmaceuticals and album covers, before returning to his beloved landscape and portrait paintings.
The exhibition of more than 60 images can be viewed on the Plastic Club’s website (www.plasticclub.org) after June 6.
There will be a live artist’s talk and remote reception on Sunday, June 7 at 2 PM. Attendance details are on the club’s website, www.plasticclub.org. The opening celebration will be recorded.
Dion’s retrospective has been planned for months, but had to be re-envisioned after the quarantine.
The Plastic Club, located on historic Camac Street, was founded in 1897 to promote the arts to the public and support artists both in the Philadelphia community and beyond.
