Opening Reception: February 20, 2020,4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Artist Talk, 4:30 p.m.

Art sometimes runs in families. Is it nature or nurture? A bit of both? Examples from art history include Jan Brueghel, Elder and Younger, Orazio and Artemisia Gentileschi, Suzanne Valadon and her son Maurice Utrillo, José Ruiz Blasco and his son Pablo Picasso.

This show brings two art making families from the Philadelphia region together. Sarah Bloom is a photographer who also works in transfer print and mixed media like her mother, Rosalind. Rosalind uses bits of old paintings as characters in her mixed media pieces. Found and repurposed materials are a source of meaning and inspiration for Dan Schimmel, while mother Eleanor is devoted to working in encaustic. As individuals, and as families, these artists all share, in addition to artistic talent, a commitment to social and environmental justice.
