No experience required. Paint Night will begin promptly at 7:00 PM, so we recommend getting there a bit early to grab your snacks and a drink! Rally some friends, make a date, and RSVP ASAP. You’ll bring home a unique artistic creation that can never be replicated. 

Through August 27: Lynne Clibanoff/Amze Emmons exhibition in the Gershman Gallery

AmzeLynne Clibanoff’s cigar-box sized, beautifully finished three-dimensional rooms, often suffused with mysterious light, are paired with Amze Emmons’ magically/minimally realist images inspired by architectural illustration, cartoon language, and instruction manuals. Both are Philadelphia-based artists represented by the Dolan/Maxwell Gallery who share an interest in the depiction of space and in presenting their subjects in exquisite detail. Read more about the show HERE and read the Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Edith Newhall’s take on her visit to the exhibition HERE.

Through August 27: “Urban Light” exhibition in collaboration with the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center

The Gershman Y is delighted to welcome the newest installment in a partnership with the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC). Stanley Muravchick’s collection of Philadelphia-centric photographs, entitled Urban Light, explores compelling visual dynamics found in our daily urban experiences. These colorful photos “capture the visual complexity of human activity naturally illuminated in the dense environment of a major urban setting,” writes Muravchick.  Read more about the exhibition HERE.
