Last Minute Philly Shows

There are two shows I recently saw worth getting to in that last two weeks of their run.  The first is All Different Colors at Fleisher Ollman.  Many beautiful drawings and sculptures to be seen in this exhibition.  

Here are two I snapped a picture of:

Paige Donovan, all acrylic on paper, 12 x 18 inches

Carl Bailey, Untitled, 2014, Acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18 inches
But click here to view more images and these in better quality. 

This is the second show worth the trip:

The annual juried show at Woodmere, which I saw about two weeks after the Fleisher Ollman, felt like something of an extension or compliment to it, very personal works, sometimes narrative, with an emphasis on color.  Makes sense that the juror is the wonderful Sarah McEneaney. 

Here are two pieces from that show:

Philippa Beardsley, Pizza Parlor, 2014, Wood, acrylic and mixed media on wood

Morgan Hobbs, A New Haircut, 2013, Oil on Canvas
They have a nice online catalogue here if you can't get to the show or aren't local as well.

All Different Colors closes August 30th, the Annual Juried Exhibition is up through September 1 (with a free closing that day.)
