    Burning public art question, Where could Rizzo go?

Your chance to experience a concert there happens to be tonight https://www.facebook.com/events/1929881870595490/

    16 of the Coolest, Most Unexpected Concert Venues Around the World | Architectural Digest
    Think back to the last concert you saw, and ask yourself what it looked like. Do visions of black-painted walls, flashing lights, and overcrowded bars come to mind? Perhaps there were a few chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, or maybe a red velvet curtain framing the stage; but otherwise, the space was probably unremarkable and easy to forget.

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. The Sanctuary Series is free and open to the public.

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.
