Fashion District Philadelphia

September 19 - December 15, 2019

Bridgette Mayer Gallery announces a gallery space featuring rotating exhibitions at Fashion District Philadelphia, the new Gallery Mall, at 9th and Market Street, Philadelphia.

Philadelphia, PA – September 19, 2019. Bridgette Mayer Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of a pop-up gallery space in the new Fashion District of Philadelphia, located at 901 Market St. in Philadelphia on the Second Floor. Curator Bridgette Mayer has curated $1 million worth of public art for the Fashion District Philadelphia Art Collection and now the Bridgette Mayer Gallery is offering visitors another opportunity to enjoy high quality art with a physical pop up space. Beginning September 19th, the gallery will feature rotating exhibitions, with a kick-off exhibition showcasing artwork by Philadelphia favorites Charles Burwell and Neil Anderson.

Bridgette Mayer Gallery will showcase new exhibitions quarterly featuring artists curated in the Fashion District Philadelphia Percent for Art Collection along with the Bridgette Mayer Gallery artists and extending programming into the art community. The first exhibition features Philadelphia-based artist Charles Burwell and Pennsylvania-based artist Neil Anderson, two prominent abstract painters known for their use of vibrating contrasting colors, textures and shapes and a love of process driven painting inspired by fashion, nature, design and science.

About the Artists:

Philadelphia-based artist Charles Burwell is known for using linear marks as a constant element in his work, utilizing a layering process that relies on the interaction of controlled line and organic and geometric forms. Along with 14 works of art featured in the gallery space, Burwell was also commissioned by Fashion District Philadelphia for two public murals titled: The Four Seasons: Spring & Fall, and The Four Seasons: Winter & Summer.

The murals are among the largest paintings that Burwell has ever created. “Winter” and “Summer” represent the energy, color, patterns and texture of the fashion world. “Spring” and “Autumn” represent the colors of the seasons and the movement and energy of life in Center City Philadelphia.

Neil Anderson (b. 1933, American) is a contemporary painter inspired by the natural landscape surrounding his studio in rural central Pennsylvania. He describes his work as non-representational rather than abstract and explains that after the initial drawing, the emerging colors, textures and shapes are all improvised. The meaning of the painting arises from the unexpected occurrences of formal arrangement that happen in the process of working toward a conclusion where all the parts will become interdependent.
Fashion District Philadelphia Gallery Info: The new gallery space will be accessible during mall hours and is located on the 2nd floor near H&M and GUESS.

Monday – Saturday 10:00am – 8:00pm
