Works on Paper 2009 at The Philadelphia Sketch Club features 105 artworks ranging from photorealistic paintings to abstract expressionist collage to drawings and more – the range of works selected by jurors William David Brown and Keith Moutford is a composite view of the excellent art created by Philadelphia’s best artists. Works on Paper is a difficult show to get into since it’s one of the most popular shows the club exhibits, in fact this year there were so many strong pieces that a Salon des Refuse was installed in the downstairs pool room. Exhibition Chairman Rich Harrington, a professor at Moore College of Art, worked closely with the jurors to present a show that is popular, controversial and exciting. James Toogood, a most excellent watercolorist, won the top two prizes for his astonishingly realistic paintings.
