Picture the collision of people, landscapes, and architecture that give Philadelphia its unique essence—the hustle and bustle, the tranquility, community, isolation. Capture the heartbeat of Philadelphia through the photographer’s eye.
Now through February 20, the Mt. Airy Art Garage – a nonprofit Arts Hub founded and driven by a dynamic group of professional artists – is hosting various local photographers who share their vision of Philadelphia including realistic imagery, abstraction, black & white, color, 35mm, digital and all options that the artists’ eye can imagine. The exhibit is called “Philadelphia Through the Lens”
For the exhibit the organization solicited work from its members, as well as opening a city-wide call. Some of the artists featured, include: Denise Allen, Poppy Rae Bass, Kevin Bennett, Nathalie Borozny, Bill Brookover, Frank Burd, William B. Hanson, Elfie Harris, James Hay, Judy Levy, Dan Ravasio, Robert Silverman, Patricia Cousins Smith, Nicki Toizer, Joe Vescovich, Andrew Walker, and Sheppard Williams.
The exhibit’s opening also marked the launch of organization’s new Photo Club, which meets on the third Saturday of each month from noon to 2:00 p.m. ($5 per person). It will feature discussions, group critiques and photo walks for adults of all skill levels.
“Philadelphia Through the Lens” is running at the Mt. Airy Art Garage Wednesday and Friday, noon to 7:00 p.m., Thursday and Saturday, noon to 6:00 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5:00 p.m. For more information, call (215) 242-5074 or visit the Mt. Airy Art Garage website.
