October in Philadelphia

First up, it's time for POST. For the next 2 weekends artists will open their studios to the public all around the area. POST provide the maps and organization, the artists supply the art and snacks. Here's the lowdown.

Note that this coming Sunday, October 4th, that the studios East of Broad will be open. This includes South Street where Sage Projects is located and is presenting a new photography show with Heather Raquel Philips and Deborah Raven.

I see that Philadelphia's Magic Garden up the street from Sage is open for POST and showing the work of Isaiah Zagar. See the Queens Village map for other shows in this neighborhood.

In the Kensington/Fishtown area go visit the new space of curator Eileen Tognini in the amazing 2424 Studios building at 2424 York, her space is Studio 214. Get used to hearing about what is happening at 2424, they have a lot of very exciting events and shows planned for the month and the entire year.

Millville artists Carl B. Johnson and Liz Nicklus new mixed media work will be featured at S.M.I.L.E. Gallery in Philadelphia in their show Driven to Abstraction. A reception will be held on Friday, October 9th, from 6 to 9 PM. S.M.I.L.E. is located at 105 S.22nd Street.

Also on October 9th during DesignPhiladelphia there is the opening reception for Steve Madsen: A World In Wood a Gallery Talk with the Artist that will take place at 6:30pm at the Wood Turing Center. Check the WTC website for details on this and other shows.

Visit the usual places for maps and listing of other shows around town. I recommend phillyartgalleries.com and philebrity.
