STIRRING, SHAKING AND OTHER MOVEMENTS
The Plastic Club will open a multimedia exhibition of works that portray movement, change, or sequence.
The opening will be from 2-5 PM, with awards and announcements at 3:30 PM. Works can be viewed during the opening, by appointment, and during the club’s open hours (1-4PM) on the third Sunday of the month.
The prize juror will be Fred C. Kaplan, who teaches at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Fleisher Art Memorial.
The show’s prospectus explains that “the approach can be representational and/or an abstract rendering of receding, morphing, fragmenting, emerging, converging, overlapping, intersecting, adding, subtracting and/or any other dynamic process.”
The subject is open, the prospectus continues: “news, war, fires, sports, music, dance, decay and growth, architecture, the ocean, storms, microscopic cells, the solar system, subatomic particles, etc.”
The exhibition is timed to coincide with the Sixth Annual Philadelphia Independent Animation Festival, on Sunday February 17th. Besides the showing of animation entries on that Sunday, there will be demonstrations and workshops at the Plastic Club throughout the month. Check the website for schedule.
The Plastic Club, located on quaint, historic Camac Street, was founded in 1897 to support art and artists. Back in 1897, “Plastic” meant in-progress or changeable. The Club offers art workshops open to the public.
