Philadelphia City Paper, October 7, 2011

"Abstraction" is the first of many Projects Gallery shows that will examine the various genres used by today's artists. Such a series is ambitious, to be sure, but it's also welcome in a time when there simultaneously seems to be too few and too many artistic genres. Not to mention mediums: This exhibit includes drawings, prints, sculptures, paintings and mixed media by 28 artists. Pay close attention to Alice Whealin's ink, beehive-like drawings, Marjorie Grigonis' word art and Robert Aiosa's wooden sculpture. Opening reception Fri., Oct. 7, 6-9 p.m., free, through Oct. 29, Projects Gallery, 629 N. Second St., 267-303-9652, projectsgallery.com.
