FRIEDAcommunity is proud to announce the show A closer look by Gerri Spilka.  Join us and the artist on Friday, December 1, First Friday, during the opening reception from 6pm to 8pm.

Gerri Spilka considers herself to be an alchemist who takes ordinary pieces of cotton and transforms them into larger-than-life shapes of glorious, luminous colors. Her work fuses seemingly disparate elements: modern figurative abstraction, the grittiness of urban life, and decades of observing people. She uses these elements to re-imagine traditional quilts, making them into visual stories on the human experience.

Gerri’s work has been widely exhibited in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. It is held in private and public collections, including the International Quilt Museum (Lincoln, NE), as well as Park Towne Place Art Collection and Temple University’s Fox School of Business (both in Philadelphia, PA).

100% of the sale proceeds of any artwork during the exhibition go to the artist. In return, we have asked that selected artists schedule time to engage with our community through a workshop, a demonstration, or a discussion.

Date: Friday, December 1
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Mask recommended during this event.
