Opening Reception: May 13th, 6-8pm

For over 30 years, the annual juried show has featured between 40 and 90 works of emerging and professional artists from the Philadelphia region and beyond. A wide range of artistic experience and media has meant an exuberant and unique show each year. We see this as an opportunity to spark artistic discussion, welcome fresh faces to our Art Center, and to help artists of all ages build their exhibition resumes.


This year, our juror is Leah Modigliani, Assistant Professor and Program Head of the Visual Studies Department at Tyler School of Art. Modigliani is an artist and writer who earned her BFA from Concordia University, an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a PhD in Art History and Criticism from Stony Brook University. She has taught visual studies, studio art and modern and contemporary art history at California College for the Arts, the University of Guelph, the University of Toronto and Ontario College of Art and Design University. Her visual work has been exhibited at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax, The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto and the Moore Space in Miami, among other galleries and museums.
