Morris-Warren Gallery is pleased to present “THE PAFA SHOW”, featuring paintings, drawings, sculpture and mixed media work by fifteen Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art alumni based in NYC.
Artist/Curator Katherine Bradford, who recently had her own solo show at nearby CANADA Gallery, and for many years taught at PAFA, has chosen an exciting and varied selection of works.
The artists and curator share the same roots, however the fruits from this family tree are so diverse - Stainless Steel, Bronze, Charcoal, Cast Resin, Oil, Acrylic, Shower Curtains, Spray Paint, Crushed Rocks and Linseed Oil, Photo Collage, Linen, Fiberglass, Wood, Inkjet Pigment Transfer, Staples and Astroturf. These artists utilize and transform their world creating a dialogue rich with humor, political and social undertones and a celebration of the human experience.
This exhibition is the first of our Spring Season and will take place in both upstairs and downstairs galleries.
