92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains on view through August 4, 2018. Please note, we are closed Saturday, May 26th. We wish you an enjoyable and safe holiday weekend! All of the projects that I work on start by walking with a camera, at first as a means of journaling….When sorting through the images later, these landscapes change shape and take on new meaning, as I forget what existed outside the frame. These instances of daydreaming and the fog of memory are mirrored by my use of mixed media and the flaws intrinsic to the photographic medium - light leaks, lens flares and multiple exposures. Screenprinting over a photograph distorts the realities of the landscape, but it also meshes with the initial observation to create something new. These combined mediums and disparate pairings point to the fallacy of photographic documentation and hint at the subjective ways that we perceive and record the actual world. - Jacob Koestler Image: Jacob Koestler, Russian Satellite, from the series “The Natural Bridge”, 2013, Archival pigment print http://printcenter.org/100/92nd-solo-shows/

Read Dracula in real time.* May 24. Everybody wants Lucy. On this date in Dracula, Lucy Westenra writes to her friend Mina Murray about the three men who have proposed marriage to her . . . all on the same day! Dr John Seward, “the lunatic-asylum man, with the strong jaw and the good forehead,” was first. Lucy turned him down. Next was Mr. Quincey P. Morris, “the American from Texas,” whose proposal included comparing Lucy to a horse in harness with him. She turned that one down. Lastly, Arthur Holmwood, the polished, soon-to-be Lord, came in and swept Lucy off her feet. Obviously, she said yes to Arthur, but Lucy did wonder to her friend, “Why can’t they let a girl marry three men?” *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula. Follow along with your own reading and feel free to leave comments below (no spoilers for those who may be reading for the first time).

92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions: Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter are on view through August 4, 2018. I am inspired by ideas of the infinite in relation to sublime subjects like hurricanes and other weather patterns. The patterns allow me to closely examine a subject that is so much larger and powerful than myself. Essentially, the act of printing the same patterns over and over again ties in to my exploration of natural phenomena. As humans, we can try to predict and understand these storms, however we will always fall short due to our own limitations….As I print, cut, and stare, I find myself sitting in the middle of each disturbance, rearranging pieces that no longer fit together. - Julie Anne Greenberg Image: Julie Anne Greenberg, System XV Nicole: “Defied Forecasts by Steadily Organizing”, 2018, Screenprint with paint and pigment on cut and reassembled paper on built panel http://printcenter.org/100/92nd-solo-shows/

What is Photo Pop Philly? Let Me Explain!

Photo Pop Philly (1315 Walnut Street) is Philly’s first pop-up photo/art exhibit. The closest concepts I can think of are Refinery 29’s 29Rooms or Dream Machine in Brooklyn – a fun, colorful, interactive walk-through exhibit with endless opportunities for photo ops.

92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions: Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy are on view through August 4, 2018. This project is an extension of my examination of the family photo album. In “Becoming a Specter” I make images in an effort to describe the anxiety and psychological estrangement one experiences during times of political and social unrest. I think of this project as a form of aesthetic defiance. It is my goal to expand the perimeter of visual ephemera that might be considered for new iterations of the family album. - Daniel W. Coburn Image: Daniel W. Coburn, Untitled, work from “Becoming a Specter”, 2018, Archival pigment prints, 16” x 20”, Edition of 12 http://printcenter.org/100/92nd-solo-shows/
