Artist Chuck Connelly keeping it simple in Chestnut Hill:

Harry Anderson, a full time Philadelphia artist, incorporates found objects from industrial salvage yards and other mass-produced goods from the 30’s through 50’s, along with hand blown glass for his light installations.

Hal Hirshorn, a painter and photographer from New York, makes 21st Century photographs using 19th century materials and methods. Specifically, salt prints, a technique invented by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1841.

Ted Victoria, trained as a painter and printmaker, will be installing lighted projection pieces by using a simple lens and light system. One of these installations will result in the entire front window of the Gallery being encased in an aquarium-like projection of live sea monkeys many times their actual size. The installation will be on view daily from 6:00 pm to midnight.
