May 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Gross McCleaf Gallery

127 S 16th St
Philadelphia, PA 19102 United States

Late Sun scaled

On Saturday, May 4, 1-4 pm, join the three exhibiting artists for May at Gross McCleaf Gallery, Martha Armstrong, Rebekah Callaghan, and Bethann Parker.

Gross McCleaf Gallery is pleased to present Martha Armstrong’s recent works in ‘New Paintings: Vermont, Mt. Gretna, Tucson’. A lifelong devotee of the natural world and the art of painting, Armstrong has honed her distinct perspective, and style of formal expression, through her decades-long practice. This compelling collection of landscape paintings features Armstrong’s favorite muses such as trees, sunsets, clouds, and water from her oft visited and most cherished locales.

The gallery is also thrilled to present ‘Quiet Season’, the latest exhibition by Rebekah Callaghan, featuring sensitive and color-rich abstractions that reflect her botanical inspirations. With ‘Quiet Season’, Callaghan debuts a muted, neutralized palette, a departure from the vibrant pink and green hues of her past shows, and invites viewers to explore the quiet magic and mystery within each hushed detail of her works.

Our upstairs gallery hosts ‘Interwoven’, Bethann Parker’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. This collection features over 40 paintings that showcase Parker’s signature use of experimental textures and layered narratives. The works speak to Parker’s rich knowledge of American folk and modernist forms, connecting the paintings to spiritually influenced artists such as Hilma af Klint and Charles Burchfield, and strongly resonate with traditional ephemera and handcrafted heirlooms.

We hope to see you there, or visit us during business hours between May 2 – 23rd to view the incredible new collections.
