Designed specifically for the galleries at Drexel’s Leonard Pearlstein Gallery, Convergence looks amazing in the photos and I suspect it must look spectacular in person.
Featuring the work of installation artist Jeremy Holmes from Ithaca, NY, this solo exhibition consist of a continuous, site-specific wood installation designed for the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery. Using five varieties of North American hardwoods, Holmes explores the contrasts between the abstract shapes of bent wood and the geometric rooms the piece inhabits. Holmes uses space in original and unexpected ways, filling voids in interiors that would otherwise go unnoticed and allowing the viewer to experience the work from within.
The exhibit is free and open to the public, Wednesdays through Sundays, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., from August 6 – September 28, 2014. Leonard Pearlstein Gallery, 3401 Filbert Street, Philadelphia Check out the Philadelphia Inquirer for a nice article on the exhibit.
