The 35th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
WGS alumn Jeff Zimmer will be one of the artists featured by Scotland in the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show Nov 10 – 13, 2011. Jeff will be exhibiting his exquisite series "Whitewash". This past summer, Jeff's work was a favorite of Washington Post arts critic Michael O'Sullivan in his review of the LongView Gallery show of Washington Glass School artists.
Said Jeff of his new works: "Whitewash depicts a series of landscapes, both urban and rural, American and Scottish, under a blanket of snow -- a metaphor for the way we, as individuals and nations, ‘whitewash’ our pasts. The luminous, internally illuminated landscapes, placed in thick frames, contrast the untrammelled snow with the barely-concealed debris which remains, only partially hidden from view."
