Cherry Street Pier resident artists featured in a group exhibition at Atelier Gallery

If you have become a fan of Cherry Street Pier’s resident artists — past and present — then you will be excited to know that members of our current cohort and alumni will be featured in a special group exhibition titled Unfolding curated by Philadelphia Contemporary at the Atelier Art Gallery from May 28 through July 28. We sure are!

Unfolding will feature selections from the artists that explore the concept of public and private. Each artist or organization spent a year in residence making use of a private studio at the Pier, from 2018-2019 or 2020-2021. For many of them, the architecture of their spaces, marked by floor-to-ceiling windows, led them to navigate a new relationship between creating in a private studio workspace and having their process on full public display.

The result, a body of mixed-media work from painting and photography to writing, music, and sculpture, exemplifying a range of creative responses that emerged from the residency.
