REVERBERATIONS:
MADELINE ADAMS AND EMILY CHATTON

I am in a two person exhibition at James Oliver Gallery. Although it's focusing on my paintings and drawings, I do have some prints on display (and ask for them!). There will be a closing reception on March 24.

JOG presents its first show of the new season, exhibiting works from artists Madeline Adams and Emily Chatton. The show, curated by JOG explores the organic focal points of modern chaos in both natural and urban settings. The amorphous form and the grid abound in the works of the two artists.

Former Philadelphia native Emily Chatton unites her classical PAFA training with unusual contemporary materials such as mylar and resin, in pieces that explore her passion for the natural world. Chatton's use of light, transparency, repetitive imagery, and patterns create a dream-like atmosphere for her imagery to reside in, reinforcing the feel of nostalgia and memory in pieces often inspired by her own history.

Madeline Adams' work explores connections and idiosyncrasies in the natural world, through the medium of painted abstractions that use color and layering to make contrasts of concealment and revealment. Unsuspected moments are both an inspiration and a welcome outcome of her working methods. Patterning and spontaniety organize the organic forms in her work, creating images that are both chaotic and comfortable, like nature itself.

Cyanotype workshop at The Random Tea Room, July 16, 2017

Revel in the glory of the powerful rays of the sun with printmakers from BYO Print, and make traditional-style cyanotype prints, also known as sun prints. 

We provide all the materials you'll need to make a unique print to take home. You can also BYO objects to use that are opaque and flattish. Feathers, pressed flowers, stencils are great for this. 

Spend an afternoon in the backyard of the tea room with an Iced Tea and good company. RSVP via email to byostudio.philly@gmail.com. Workshop cost is $10 per person, and you will make one print. (Because of the cost of supplies for this workshop, you can make additional prints for an additional fee.)
