Celebrating the Center’s 20th year hosting the Windgate ITE International Residency program, the resident fellows worked together for two months in Philadelphia to collaborate and focus on new directions in their work, which culminates in the allTURNatives: Form + Spirit 2015 exhibition in the Center’s Gerry Lenfest Gallery. This multidisciplinary exhibition will reflect each resident fellow’s experience including objects produced before and during the residency. Three dimensional work will be accompanied by photos, video, and other documentation depicting the summer experience.

Julia Harrison, Artist (WA, USA); Rex Kalehoff, Artist (NY, USA); Zina Manesa-Burloiu, Artist (Romania); Adrien Segal, Artist (CA, USA); Grant Vaughan, Artist (NSW, Australia); Seth C. Bruggeman, Scholar (PA, USA); Winifred Helton-Harmon, Photojournalist (PA, USA)

Take the Windgate Challenge!
We are thrilled to announce that The Center has been awarded a new 3 year, $600,000 challenge grant by the Windgate Charitable Foundation. This challenge grant encourages donor giving by encouraging new and continued gifts. When a donor renews a previous gift to the Center, Windgate will double the gift with a 1 to 1 match. For every new or upgraded gift, Windgate will triple the gift with a 2 to 1 match. To learn more about how you can help us meet our goals, CLICK HERE!
The Center for Art in Wood embarks on new terrain with its spring exhibition, a collaboration with young, local artists who work in diverse media – drawing, sculpture, printmaking, video, and photography – everything, in fact, except wood. The 18 Philadelphia-based artists have selected one or more pieces from the Center’s Museum Collection to serve as a point of departure for new artwork, including animation, kinetic sculpture, book art, and large scale installations. In this exhibition and in other initiatives, the Center seeks to make the collection an engine for creative activity.
Artists: Jaime Alvarez, Todd Baldwin, Timothy Belknap, Marc Blumthal, Mark Brosseau, Lewis Colburn, Patrick Coughlin, Marianne Dages, Christina P. Day, Leslie Friedman, Jason Gandy, James Johnson, Ryan McCartney, Alexis Nutini, Joanna Platt, Terri Saulin Frock, H. John Thompson, and Tamsen Wojtanowski
