Philadelphia Sculptors has created another opportunity to show how creative our artists can be when presented with new challenges. For our latest exhibition, PS and the PL130 Gallery at PhotoLounge are collaborating to present Depth of Field, a unique exhibition of artworks that combine photography with sculpture. The exhibition celebrates the unexpected and the irreverent as artists display original ways of connecting the two disciplines.
In contrast to previous exhibitions at PhotoLounge, the new artworks in the PL130 Gallery are not confined to two dimensions and instead rise from the floors, extend from the walls, and peep out from the wooden cubbies. The exhibition of 23 artworks by 18 artists that were selected by jurors Lauren Mitchell and Owen Kobasz creates a new environment populated by chimerical constructions that challenge design conventions and confront sometimes fraught topics.
The exhibiting artists are: Lindsey Arturo, Kristina Bickford, Charles Emlen, Christopher Evans, John Groves, David Heshmatpour, Kim Knauer, Francesca Lally, George Lorio, Virginia Maksymowicz, Nicole Molnar, Rachel Scheinfelt, Kathran Siegel, Marcelino Stuhmer and Dave Meekins, Blaise Tobia and Dan Loewenstein, and Ruini Yu.
A free public reception will take place on Friday, September 8, 2023, from 6-9 pm.
