Alexis Granwell (MFA '07) in Exhibition with Rick Lewis at MACAS, Opening March 5th, 6pm

Mount Airy Contemporary Artists Space (MACAS) is pleased to present artwork by Philadelphia artist Alexis Granwell (MFA '07) and Brooklyn artist Rick Lewis. Utilizing a variety of techniques and media, including painting, print and wall-mounted assemblage, the artists demonstrate their connection to place. Their work is as much about the performance of making as it is about the paradoxical tension between their use of fragile materials and the strength of their designs. Granwell is inspired by the cycle of decay and renewal in the urban landscape. Using detritus from the city she assembles constructions that suggest new possibilities. Her prints incorporate the lines and patterns of topographical maps leading us to a visualization of a psychological geography. MACAS is a small artist-run exhibition space in the northwest of Philadelphia. The gallery’s program is focused on connecting artists and artist communities through exhibitions that pair artists from different regions.
