Al Gury, a Fleisher faculty member and chair of the painting department at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, has recently published Foundations of Drawing, a comprehensive guide to drawing as an art form including historical information, materials and technique, and step-by-step demonstrations. Join us for a discussion about his latest book, a drawing demonstration, and a book signing. Gury received his BA in fine arts and humanities from Saint Louis University, a certificate of art from PAFA, and an MFA from the University of Delaware. He is a recipient of the Cresson Traveling Fellowship. He is represented by F.A.N. Gallery in Philadelphia. His paintings have been exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the National Capitol in Washington, D.C., Washington and Lee University, the University of Pennsylvania, and at galleries across the country. He writes for American Artists and has published two other books: Alla Prima: A Contemporary Guide to Traditional Direct Painting and Color for Painters: A Guide to Traditions and Practice. The Sanctuary Series was developed in support of Fleisher’s mission to make art accessible to everyone. The series provides low-commitment learning experiences for our creative community to explore its interest in the arts. Supporting and supplementing Fleisher’s regular class and workshop offerings, Sanctuary Series events range from artist talks, film screenings, musical and dance performances, as well as hands-on workshops.

Much like a foraging walk, this intimate talk provides a context for Katya Gorker’s evolving art practice across converging media. As a Russian immigrant grappling with cultural identity, Katya has always been sensitive to language and the complexities of translating personal experiences. This sensitivity has informed her research and artistic practices. Her interests in film range from the immediacy of digital media’s impact on time and collective memory to personal ethnography and the shifting boundaries of cultural identity. She is currently in production on a personal ethnographic documentary and trans-media project, Chekhov’s Dogs, that traces the cultural significance of mushroom foraging in the Russian diaspora. The film draws parallels between mycology and immigration, cultural identity and adaptation in the age of globalization. The Sanctuary Series was developed in support of Fleisher’s mission to make art accessible to everyone. The series provides low-commitment learning experience for our creative community to explore its interest in the arts. Supporting and supplementing Fleisher’s regular class and workshop offerings, Sanctuary Series events range from artist talks, film screenings, musical and dance performances, as well as hands-on workshops. The Sanctuary Series is free and open to the public.

Philly mural of an eagle clipping Tom Brady wants to become permanent

Here’s the backstory: Saligman, who is behind many murals throughout the city, painted the mural on the side of her studio at 829 Bainbridge Street in South Philly, days before the Super Bowl. It became an instant hit, for obvious reasons.

    This new Eagles mural is everything right now
    Philly has, literally, thousands of amazing murals. But if we had to pick just one to see right now, it'd be this one: Meg Saligman's latest mural of an eagle clawing at a tiny Tom Brady, dubbed "Bird Feed." Even more, Saligman's now-iconic work of art is not exactly permanent.
