Shape Up, James Oliver Gallery, Philadelphia, PA
May 22 – July 10, 2021
James Oliver Gallery presents Shape Up, a group exhibition curated by JOG, featuring contemporary artists Jennifer Watson, Ben Olsen, Barry Lorne, and Debra Lynn Manville. Opening Saturday, May 22, 2021, this exhibition explores the connection between the abstract and figurative through color, form, and internal dialogue. Each artist draws on a personal narrative to illuminate a dream-like nostalgia and invites viewers to pursue their own relation to the imagery. Meaningful decisions in tone and intensity serve as interlinking threads to unite everyone’s story as one. Immerse yourself in the vibrancy and luminescence Shape Up uncovers as we spring into summer.
