New Radicals at Cerulean Arts in Philadelphia, PA
New Radicals at Cerulean Arts featuring 14 Philadelphia connected painters chosen for their subtle, slow and pleasureful commitment to their practice: Rebekah Callaghan, Mariel Capanna, Alex Cohen, Evan Fugazzi, Claire Kincade, Bonnie Levinthal, Adam Lovitz, Dustin Metz, John Mitchell, Samantha Mitchell, Kaitlin Pomerantz, Liza Samuel, Bill Scott and Leigh Werrell. While the work varies in form and subject, an intimate relationship with mark, color and surface is consistent. These 14 demonstrate a loving restraint, a respect for the mystery that unfolds in process and a deference for the maker’s hand. In the face of current trends, this careful work feels radical. I look to these painters as an antidote, as proof that the greatest painting can still be deeply felt and personal. And I take great interest in the way this groundswell is happening here, two hours south of New York.

The Arctic Circle Residency
Levinthal has been accepted to the The Arctic Circle Residency for the Autumn Art & Science Expedition for Fall 2018.
"International artists, scientists, educators and innovators will live and work aboard a Barquentine Tall Ship while sailing the waters of the international territory of Svalbard, an Arctic archipelago just 10 degrees latitude from the North Pole.
The Arctic Circle program provides opportunity for artists and innovators to pursue their personal projects on board while exploring collaboration with the expedition’s fellow participants. The vessel and home during her time in the remote Arctic, a traditionally rigged Barquentine, is equipped with workspace, common areas, and ample room for privacy and creativity."

The Woskob Family Gallery is pleased to announce SEEP, a group exhibition presenting 11 contemporary artists hailing from across the country whose work engages with water. Curated by gallery director Ann Tarantino, the exhibition explores water from diverse viewpoints: whether as a medium for art-making, a springboard for exploring social justice issues, or as a metaphor for unknowable terrain. An abridged version made its debut at the Arlington Arts Center (Arlington, VA) in March 2017. SEEP features the work of artists Micaela Amateau Amato, Caetlynn Booth, Rob Carter, Ken Fandell, Bonnie Levinthal, Bethany Johnson, Giulia Piera Livi, Patrick McDonough, John Peña, Joseph Smolinski, and Jenna Spevack.

Venue: Lumen Studios, The Crypt, St John on Bethnal Green, 200 Cambridge Heath Road, E2 9PA, London, England
Date: 1 July 2017, 6pm - 12am.
Lumen Studios present a unique installation for Art Night at the Lumen Crypt Gallery in The Crypt at St John on Bethnal Green, a church designed by Sir John Soane, who was known for his research on light and its' relationship to architecture. The presentation will include a variety of experimental projection-based installations that refer to the constellation Cassiopeia, which will be in the sky at the time of the exhibition. By doing this, Lumen aims to highlight the stars and constellations that are visible within the urban environment.

SEEP curated by Ann Tarantino at the Arlington Arts Center
SEEP explores the ways in which contemporary artists use water in their work, whether as subject matter, medium, or both. Water, in its myriad forms and interpretations—whether as a source of visual inspiration, a substance with social and political implications, or the actual stuff of art itself—is at the root of all the work in the exhibition. Taken together, the works offer a fuller understanding of how
contemporary artists respond to, visualize, interpret, conceptualize, and see water today. Participating artists: Caetlynn Booth, Rob Carter, Rachel Farbiarz, Bonnie
Levinthal, Giulia Livi, and Patrick McDonough.
Curators Spotlight will be on view Jan. 21 - Mar 26, 2017 with opening reception Saturday Feb. 11, from 6 - 9 pm. Gallery talks with selected curators are scheduled for Saturday, March 4, 1 - 4pm.

REVIEW: BETWEEN MATTER and EXPERIENCE
Visual Specialties: Three Shows, Three Parts of the Culture by Tom Csaszar
The WOODMERE ANNUAL: 73rd JURIED EXHIBITION
Woodmere Art Museum
June 14 – September 1, 2014
The exhibition will feature works in a wide variety of media from artists living within 50 miles of the Museum. Works will be selected to create a cohesive presentation that explores contemporary themes and ideas within the arts of Philadelphia. The exhibition will be juried by artist Sarah McEneaney. In conjunction with this exhibition, some of McEneaney’s own work will be on view, and the artist will select objects for display from Woodmere’s collection that relate to the show’s themes.
BETWEEN MATTER and EXPERIENCE
Between Matter and Experience is a group exhibition that represents the work of nine contemporary painters. While the visual vocabularies are diverse, there exists a shared humanist perspective that suggests the way it feels to move through the world without feigned knowing or emotional distance, expressing an openness to sensation of both paint and subject.
The work reflects attention to the overlooked, the intimate, the awkward and imperfect, appreciates mystery, and possesses a curiosity for things hidden. In all the work, there is a suggestion of the existence of something not entirely present.
This "between" state takes the form of the tension between abstraction and representation, between image and the physical form of the paint, and where a quality is present that resists naming.
At the heart of this view, is the idea that this attention to humanness inspires a range of voices.
This show grew from a small, casual dialogue between a few of the painters in this show into a larger discussion on painting. The original conversations traced the threads of continuity that weave through the work of these artists from different cities and generations.
Partly facilitated by the personal relationships that connect them, or maybe as a result of seeing each other's work, but most likely due to something much more far-reaching and complex, these painters share an attitude on painting that manifests in quite different visual expressions. The decision for this particular grouping is to draw attention to how diverse that expression can be.

Cerulean Arts is pleased to present Sampler: Small Works by 30 Artists, featuring paintings, sculpture and works on paper. Curated by artist Bill Scott, the exhibition comprises artists spanning generations, geography and artistic styles. Scott selected artists whose work he admires and enjoys viewing. From each artist, he chose signature pieces indicative of their style – abstract, representational, tonalist or colorist.
Bill Scott is a color-based abstraction painter
and printmaker. He is represented by Hollis Taggart Galleries, New York, where he has had four solo exhibitions. His work has been the
subject of additional solo presentations in London, Philadelphia and
San Francisco, and has been included in numerous group shows.
