First Friday: Alumni Exhibition opening
The public is invited to the opening of Pennsylvania College of Art & Design’s Alumni Exhibition, scheduled for First Friday, September 3, from 5-9 pm. A First Friday reception will be held from 5-7 pm. The show, featuring the work of 31 artists from the Class of 1985 through the Class of 2021, will be on display in the Main Gallery through October 31, 2021.
After a year-long break due to Covid the Gallery again is open to members of the public. Masks are required of all visitors due to campuswide health and safety regulations.
According to Director of Exhibitions Alex Schaufele, the Alumni Exhibition not only showcases the current work of the College’s alumni, but it is also an opportunity to connect current and former students through their collective artmaking experiences. “Our Main Gallery is a teaching exhibition space and it is powerful for our current students to see the growth and range of our alumni,” she says. “Additionally, I hope that guests visiting the exhibition and related programming will appreciate the variety of artwork represented and the skill of the artists who produced it.”
Participating artists include Joanna Becker, Ashley Moog Bowlsbey, Owen Bradley, Glenn Buggoon, Alicia Byler, Justin Carney, Paul Chrastina, Alyssa Cross, Sage Dougherty, Finch, Lisa Gauker, Jessie Gray, Amanda Herr, Scott Higgins, Alicia Holland, Randall Lear, Adam Leitzel, Laura Luce, Kyle Newkirk, Julya Nichols, Osmyn Josef Oree, Nathalie Pacheco, Joe Palumbo, Justin Phillips, Sean Quinn, Larissa Ramey, Samantha Sanders, Amanda Scudner, Mary Kay Witmer, Mike Witmer, and Melodie Zielinski.
