Gracie DeVito, Merlin James, Gabriel de la Mora
Jan 19–March 4

The Philadelphia Art Alliance at University of the Arts is pleased to present one-person exhibitions by Gracie DeVito, Merlin James and Gabriel de la Mora that revolve around a new sensibility of abstracted landscape. These three global artists have never exhibited in Philadelphia before. Each has arrived at these works from individualized tactics that variously confront the history of representation while acknowledging the materiality and construction of images.

Full press release at the link in our bio.

All exhibitions are free and open to the public.

The Philadelphia Art Alliance at UArts is a vaccine-required community, with few exceptions. All guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and must present proof of vaccination upon entry. CDC-issued vaccination cards are preferred, though photographic proof will also be accepted. Masks are required at all times.
