East Market and InLiquid are both dedicated to a meaningful partnership and a shared mission to support local artists in the region and to deliver rich visual content to help foster a vibrant creative community.
East Market is a dynamic mixed-used project blending urban, artisanal shopping and dining experiences with contemporary work and living spaces. InLiquid, in partnership with East Market, will curate the lobby and 6th floor of the 1100 Ludlow office building featuring a rotating exhibition of original artwork made by local artists of Philadelphia. 1000 Ludlow has emerged as a design-hub in Philadelphia and hosts the offices of the National Real Estate Advisors, The Design Center, and the offices of renowned architectural firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson. Exhibitions in this exciting space will be transformed bi-annually.
East Market is open to the public by appointment. Please email Programming Director Clare Finin email@example.com to make an appointment.
Gorsen and Howell White
The works of Phyllis Gorsen and John Howell White explore the lingering impact a painting can have. Through a mix of abstraction and representation, these works slowly unveil their meanings to the viewer.
The vibrant and dynamic geometric compositions of Phyllis Gorsen are intended to move the eye using energetic patterns, movement, and vibrancy. They reveal elements of the familiar and commonplace; language, technology, spirituality, environment, and culture. John Howell White’s work is a reflection on how paintings inhabit the world. Paintings, like ghosts, confront viewers through their impact and haunt them through excluded information; they conjure an absence, which ferments attachments and invites future visitations.
Phyllis Gorsen, born in Philadelphia, PA, received her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 2014. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including galleries in New York, Philadelphia, and California.
John Howell White is Professor of Art Education in the Department of Art Education and Crafts at Kutztown University in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. He has an M.F.A. from Pratt Institute and a Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University. He is the author of Experience Painting, a textbook for secondary art students.
This show is viewable online only. In addition to the exhibition site, works are accessible through our digital lookbook, as well as our artsy gallery. Works will be housed at the Design Center of East Market in Center City until March 20th, 2022.
