Opening Friday March 7th
First Friday Reception from 5 - 9 p.m.
FOLKLORE is a special exhibit featuring original, historical Pennsylvania Dutch Fraktur folk art drawings brought into the context of similarly themed artworks created in our time. Showing these drawings, paintings, and prints together creates the opportunity for rich conversations about works of art created at different points in history. Themes evident in this selection of art include the way a particular occasion or event is commemorated; the manner in which personal histories or mythologies are created; and the tensions among strong visual components such as color, shape, and pattern when compressed in a flat space. Perhaps a convincing starting point for this dialogue is the humble yet enduring power of visual forms hand-drawn on paper.
Curated by Heidi Leitzke, PCA&D Gallery Director.
Exhibit features artwork by: Amy Cutler, Benjamin Edmiston, Clare Grill, Baker Overstreet, and Clare Rojas as well as original Fraktur drawings from the collections of The Phillips Museum at Franklin & Marshall College and LancasterHistory.org.
