Stories

Stories to Tell

Stories Told in Pictures at The Plastic Club

April will be a time for story-telling at The Plastic Club, as the historic art club invites visual artists to show how they retell the world’s stories, whether drawn from holy books or comic books or the depths of their own imaginations.

The prospectus explains that works can be representational or abstract, based perhaps on literature or perhaps on popular genres or even current events. “It is your story to tell, using your special way of doing art.”

The prospectus quotes the poet Wallace Stevens for inspiration:
“They said, ‘You have a blue guitar, you do not play things as they are.’ The man replied, ‘Things as they are are changed upon the blue guitar.'”

Stories to Tell at The Plastic Club

Stories to Tell Opening Reception Sunday, April 7th, 2:00 and 5:00 PM, with juror’s awards and announcement at 3:30 PM. The work can also be viewed by appointment or at The Plastic Club‘s special Third Sunday Open Gallery on Sunday, April 21 from 1 to 4 PM.

The Plastic Club. 247 South Camac Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107, (215) 545-9324

Dreamscapes

Tammy Kushnir, Dreamscapes, Twenty-Two GalleryDefiant, acrylic on canvas by Tammy Kushnir

Tammy Kushnir, Dreamscapes, Twenty-Two Gallery

Dreamscapes in an accumulation of imaginary landscapes from fractured emotions and passion for color. The combination leads the viewer to embrace something within themselves and connect with the pieces. My hope is that those who see my art will walk away feeling something that perhaps they didn’t realize was a part of them & acknowledge it.
I create to find joy within myself and hopefully extend that to others through colors and impressions of paint. I want to stimulate the viewer emotionally as well as through physical interaction through the texture in the art. When a piece resonates with a viewer, I know my job is done.” – Tammy Kushnir
Opening Reception: Friday, March 8, 6:00 – 9:00pm
Exhibition runs through April 7th
