Exhibition Announcements
Up & Upcoming to the South

Granary Art Center UPCOMING:
Fourth Grade Project began in 2008 when Judy Gelles volunteered in a fourth grade classroom at an elementary school in South Philadelphia. Over the course of eight years Gelles interviewed and photographed over 300 students from China, India, South Korea, England, Italy, St Lucia, South Africa, Nicaragua, and multiple regions of the United States. She asked all of the students the same three questions: Who do you live with? What do you wish for? and What do you worry about? Told in the students’ own words, these stories speak to the shared human experience across cultural and geographic boundaries. AND: In Difficult Truths, Kate Kretz presents a selection of work from a number of different series, all of which are reactions to personal experiences, whether navigating family relationships, romantic partnerships, or the world at large. AND: Shattered, an exhibit by Wendy Wischer, that uses  a single object covered with mirrors to fill an entire space through the use of light.  The moment of shatter is frozen in time while we are allowed to wander among the fragments and contemplate our relationship with them.  Our reflections are visible in the mirrored surfaces, allowing us to see ourselves within the context of the work.
