Tales from the Eraserhood

October 15 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

When David Lynch moved to Philadelphia in the late 1960s to attend PAFA, he discovered a city that was both terrifying and inspiring. Explore the neighborhood just blocks away from PAFA that so electrified Lynch’s imagination with two guides: Hidden City’s Peter Woodall and Lynch–and Eraserhood–aficionado, Bob Bruhin. During this one-and-a-half hour walking tour, we’ll delve into the area’s industrial history, as well as the sights and sounds that inspired Lynch’s movies, particularly Eraserhead.

Photographic Society of Philadelphia – Through My Eyes, a solo exhibition by David Swift

14115037_10153864285214205_1645556109044298790_o

Visionary photographer David Swift invites you to go on an aesthetic journey to witness his mindful observations of beauty and despair; the comical and quixotic as seen through his eyes in everyday life. His thought-provoking artistry is romantically portrayed through the exclusive use of image capture on film.

Join us at the opening reception on Friday, August 26, 6 – 9 pm. Refreshments will be provided along with the acoustic musical stylings of his son, the über-talented Rob Swift.

Red Hook Coffee & Tea
765 S. 4th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147

Works on display throughout September.

1315 Gallery: Call for Visual Artists From the Fringe

In a nod to Philadelphia’s long running Fringe Festival, in which experimental performing artists show their work to the public, we at Gallery 1315 are calling for visual artists who would like to show their experimental work.

Do you have a body of work that you consider experimental? Perhaps it’s an unusual medium for you, or a new subject or maybe no subject. We’re looking for work from the fringes of your own imagination.

MEDIUMS:
Work can be two or three dimensional, as long as it can hang securely on the wall. No all digital work, except for digitally printed photographs, will be accepted.
2 D work cannot be larger than 40 inches on any side, and there are only about 3 spots in the gallery that will accommodate work that big.
3 D work cannot protrude more than 10 inches from the wall.

We can accommodate up to 30 pieces of small to medium size artwork. We’d prefer to hang 2 – 3 pieces of each artist’s work, so we’re looking for about 10 artists.

HOW TO SUBMIT
Send good quality images of up to 5 pieces of work to lesley@lesleymitchell.com
Image size should be no larger than 1000 pixels per side
Include your name, phone number, website, and street address/city with submission
Include a numbered worklist with titles, mediums and sizes, including frames, with submission
Is the work a multiple?

Explain briefly how this work fits the theme, in other words in what sense it is experimental.

There is no charge for submissions, but make sure to send accurate representations of the work.
(In other words don’t waste your time or our time with illegible submissions or cockeyed photos)

DATES:
Images due Tuesday August 16 2016
Notification date August 20
Delivery date, Wednesday Sept 6, noon – 4 pm or make another appointment
Opening date: Friday, Sept 9, 6:30 – 8:30 pm and Sunday Sept 11, 2 – 5 pm
Pick up dates, Monday & Tuesday Oct 16 & 17
Show dates Sept 8 – Oct 16

DELIVERY/PICK UP, in person only, to 1315 Buttonwood St, Philadelphia PA. Pick up from same on designated dates.
Delivery, packing and pick up are the responsibility of the artist. No shipped work accepted.

THE GALLERY For those of you who do not know the space, Gallery 1315 is located on the 2nd floor at 1315 Buttonwood St in the Callowhill section of Philadelphia.
We will offer two opening parties for this show, and otherwise are open by appointment.
Because the gallery space does double duty as a tango dance space, there is constant traffic through it, and many people of the tango dance community are also art collectors.
Gallery 1315 will send email and social media invitations to an extensive local list.

COMMISSION. The gallery takes 25% of any sales.

CAVEATS: All work must be professionally presented, framed or mounted, WIRED and ready to hang.
Gallery is not responsible for any damage or loss, though every care will be taken to keep work safe.
