Happy Belated Birthday to Ellsworth Kelly!

Ellsworth Kelly Sculpture

To celebrate for Ellsworth Kelly's 90th Birthday (May 31st, 2013) and his artistic genius, I visited two institutions in Philadelphia who are exhibiting his work. The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Barnes Foundation both have exhibitions highlighting two contrasting sectors of the artist's work. The Barnes' show, "Ellsworth Kelly: Sculpture on the Wall" (open until September 2nd, 2013), really appeals me due to the each sculpture's monumental size and brilliant color. Moreover, the PMA has a tasteful exhibition, "Homage to Ellsworth Kelly" (open until August 25th,2013), which primarily highlights four of Kelly's paintings: Red Yellow Blue White (1952), Diagonal with Curve III(1978), Black Red-Orange (1966), and Yellow Relief with White (1990).


Space 1026

Space 1026 is a wonderfully run artist gallery that has been in Philadelphia for over a decade. The people are extremely friendly and the space is comfortably casual. During my visit, I saw Geoffrey Kizmiller's exhibition, "Glory Be," a show displaying brand new work from six artists (Eric Brittain, Jessica Hans, Caley Feeney, Clark Mizono, Helen Levy and Erin Jane Nelson). I was introduced to a variety of artists working in their studios "behind-the-scenes" as well as given a tour of the building. Even without all the positive energy and great exhibitions these artists bring to the space, the building itself is a very interesting one with its unique history. I highly encourage anyone near the area to check it out. The entrance is a little tough to find and how to enter the building can be a bit confusing, but once you locate and ring the gallery's unique doorbell you will find yourself heading up a steep flight of stairs that lead you to the space. Once you're in you will be glad you made all that effort!
