As I mentioned in the previous post (http://pacificoairportvaletblog.com/philadelphia-international-airport-current-art-exhibitions-part-1/ ), Philadelphia International Airport has many small art galleries. In this post I’ll cover two that are only accessible to ticketed visitors.
The first exhibition only open to ticketed visitors is;
“Diane Marimow: Of the Sea”
And is found at Terminal A-West.
The following is an excerpt from the PHL page describing this superb exhibition.
“Philadelphia ceramist Diane Marimow is inspired by the sea – its shells and marine life. Her 3-dimensional abstractions emulate the growth and movement of sea creatures, particularly mollusks such as snails, clams, and conch. Marimow’s objects are typically circular curvilinear shapes textured with spirals and shallow indentations and patterned glazed stripes. Marimow’s forms capture the sensation of life underwater with their graceful, undulating curves giving them the appearance of floating on the ocean’s current.
Diane Marimow is an Associate artist at The Clay Studio, Philadelphia, and a museum educator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She received a Master’s degree in Art Education from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, and has exhibited her work throughout the region.”
Take the time to visit this page on the PHL site and read the entire article, Diane’s work is extraordinary and very educational, http://www.phl.org/arts/current/Pages/Dianemarimow.aspx.
A second exhibition only open to ticketed visitors is;
“Caroline Lathan-Stiefel: Ennead (9)”
And is found at Terminal A-West.
The following is an excerpt from the PHL page describing this wonderful exhibition of installations.
“As an art student, Philadelphia area artist Caroline Lathan-Stiefel studied drawing and painting. At times, her 2-dimensional student work included elements of collage – fabric and textiles. Over the years, her professional work evolved to exclusively use textile-based materials such as pipe cleaners, fabric, wire, thread, and plastic to create 3-dimensional suspended works of art. Today, Lathan-Stiefel’s work shares a similar visual language to drawing and painting. She has described the similarities of her textile work to painting as “layered monumental and textural, where color and light play an essential role.” Likewise, her use of line as the underlying structural basis for her work reflects her continued interest in drawing.
In this particular installation, Lathan-Stiefel has created a visual interpretation based on the human brain and its cellular network. This non-scientific, abstract look at the mind has been described as a “kind of mapping of the neurological landscape” with an emphasis on its interconnected and intricately beautiful complexities.”
Take the time to visit this page on the PHL site and read the entire article, Caroline’s work is simultaneously unique and beautiful, http://www.phl.org/arts/current/Pages/LathanStiefel.aspx.
In the next post I will feature two more artists with exhibitions only open to ticketed visitors.
