Da Vinci Art Alliance invites all artists working on or with paper to submit to DVAA’s first Works on Paper competition juried by Philadelphia’s own, Moe Brooker. While thematically open, this exhibition will feature the diverse and tactile nature of work with and on paper. Works on paper can include (but is not limited to) drawing or painting on paper, hand pulled, photographic or digital prints, collage, paper constructions, and installations. Presented as part of the 2018 Fringe Festival and during Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST).
ABOUT THE JUROR:
Moe Brooker is a contemporary American abstract painter. His brilliantly colored abstract works are characterized by a varied array of mark-making and recessive space, with layered, juxtaposed patterns and a lively sense of formal invention. Born on January 1, 1940 in Philadelphia, PA, Brooker has exhibited widely, earning honors such as the Governor’s Award for Artist of the Year from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Medal of Achievement from the Philadelphia Art Alliance. In addition to being a faculty member at PAFA, Brooker was the first Bob Fox Distinguished Professor at the Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. Brooker continues to live and work in his hometown of Philadelphia, PA.
