Fall 2020 Solo Series Artists
Chris Cox is an abstract artist, represented by Bluestone Fine Art Gallery in Old City Philadelphia. She finds inspiration in old, stone walls and has created many paintings based on what she sees in them. While traveling through Egypt, she was taken with the imagery that she saw on the walls of locks as she traveled on the Nile. The haunting figures that the river’s water had stained on to the walls were mysterious, yet had a certain spirituality and peacefulness. Her current body of paintings tell a story of peacefulness, spirituality, community, togetherness and individuality.
Adele Kubel grew up in Cheltenham and has lived in the Abington area her whole life. She did both my undergraduate and graduate work at Tyler School of Art. Presently, she teaches art in the city of Philadelphia. I have been an art teacher for almost 33 years.
“My paintings are about my love for luscious, rich surfaces and arrangements. My paintings are about the physical and the spiritual. My paintings are compulsive and obsessive”– Adele Kubel
This event is produced as part of our Fall Solo Series 2020, on view from October 6 – November 14.
Our Coffee Breaks are sponsored in part by the Jenkinstown Lyceum
