Works on Paper Contemporary Gallery is proud to host a post-graduate collective from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in their group exhibition titled Abstract Configurations, featuring artists Justine Ditto, Matt Higgins, Gabriel Soto, Megan Webb, Drew Rane, Emily Hirtle, and Sean Hildreth.
What is a new way to speak to a viewer? Abstraction Through Configuration seeks answers not only in regard to the making of things, but also to the relationship of art and the artist to the viewer. The featured artists are interested in having a critical discussion about the evolution of their work, concerns of dimensionality, content, and the importance of an interactive, engaged experience with the viewer of art, drawing everything together.
WP Gallery is providing a platform for this group of artists to self-curate an exhibition in order to have the invaluable skill of planning, curating, installing and budgeting a show from beginning to end. Skills only learned from experience in the real world. WP gallery hopes to add some insight and guidance into this crucial stage of this life-long process of becoming an artist. Please help WP Gallery welcome these young artists by attending the Opening Reception on October 15th.
