Fleisher’s Wind Challenge Opening Reception
Friday March 28th – 6:00 to 8:00 p.m
719 Catharine Street · Philadelphia
Established in 1978, the Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is an annual juried
competition that is committed to enriching and expanding people’s lives through
art. Three Wind Challenge Exhibitions are held from September through May,
featuring the work of exceptional artists living in the Philadelphia region.
Katie Parry sees art as a signpost in a place that cannot be mapped. While the materials and processes she uses depends on the project, there are constants like transparency, light, ephemeral scraps, and hand-drawn images. For the past several years, Parry has been mostly making animations though she is trying to reimagine the miniature worlds she has created as large-scale environments made of light and a weave of many transparent layers.
