curated by Robert Willis

SEPTEMBER 13-OCTOBER 20, 2014

Opening Reception: Saturday September 13th, 5-7pm

Jed offers up a potent and tripped out stew of cosmic and aesthetic renewal…

“His incredibly original and vibrant palette, which threatens continually to spill out of control, is lassoed in with confident brushwork…..there exists an embedded narrative / aesthetic density which reveals itself only slowly and over time. This makes them the continual presence.”

Works by

GABY HEIT (drawings), SUSAN DiPRONIO (photography) and AMANDA HAMTIL (painting)

                         

In connection with “MEDIUM,” the current exhibit at the Da Vinci Art Alliance (one of Philadelphia’s most active, exciting and time-honored art collectives, of which Jed Williams is himself a member), Jed Williams Gallery will showcase three artists, including Da Vinci Art Alliance’s Executive Director, Gaby Heit, Da Vinci Art Alliance’s Secretary, Susan DiPronio and Amanda Hamtil. The three women demonstrate three different approaches to color and form, inspired by vibrancy, movement and narrative, through their selected mediums.
