Paper Work

Paper Work is a first-time curatorial effort between Snyderman-Works Galleries and local artist and collector Alex Conner. 

On view from February 3, 2017 to March 18, 2017.

Working with Rick & Ruth Snyderman, Gallery Curator Dennis Ambrogi, and Assistant Director Leigh Werrell, Conner selected works on paper from the gallery’s collection that he felt reflected themes similar to those being tackled by contemporary Philadelphia artists.

Werrell and Conner performed a series of studio visits and eventually selected eleven Philadelphia-based artists whose work is not only insightful and well-crafted, but also speaks to critical social and cultural topics. His objective was to bridge two 'Art Worlds' that have, in recent decades, coexisted adjacent to one another in Philadelphia - that of the commercial galleries and emerging local Artists.

While the themes of the work in this exhibition vary, paper retains primacy as the structural support or medium of expression. Absurdity and hyperbole, a highly graphic use of line, shape and color, as well as a focus on figuration (even in abstraction) are just some of the more prominent affinities among the Art included in this exhibition.
