Opening Reception: August 24, 5–7PM

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—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.

In addition to the works on view, the Woskob Family Gallery will host a water marbling demonstration and workshop from 5 – 8 PM on Friday, September 1, as part of downtown State College’s First Friday. In collaboration with Penn State’s Hamer Center for Community Design, the gallery will present an off-site installation by landscape architecture Ph.D. candidate Lacey Goldberg. Additionally, a public conversation between artists Stacy Levy and Eve Mosher will take place on Tuesday, September 26, at 6 PM, in the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center.
