Bertrand Productions is excited to announce their collaboration with Helen Drutt, Matthew Drutt and Globe Dye Works to produce Philadelphia: Then and Now 1950-2019, an exhibition presenting works from over 50 Philadelphia-based craft artists from the last seven decades.
Bertrand Productions will host 14 emerging and mid-career artists currently active in their artistic endeavors (listed below). Curated by Helen Drutt and Mathew Drutt, Globe Dye Works will host over 40 historic works in various craft media in their newly opened gallery. These works were executed by artists celebrated in their field as well those who became mentors to following generations of skilled artisans.
The American Craft Council descends upon Philadelphia for their 2019 annual conference between October 10th-12th. The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show is open to the public November 8th-10th. Additionally, CraftNOW will host a variety of events including a symposium on Friday November 8th surrounding the theme Craft Capital. The excitement of all of the events occurring in Philadelphia this fall has been the catalyst for our forthcoming exhibition, Philadelphia: Then and Now 1950-2019.
You are invited to celebrate craft in Philadelphia over refreshments and light fare at the opening reception for Philadelphia: Then and Now 1950-2019 on Saturday October 12th from 7-9pm!
