First Friday Opening for PLACING: The Windgate Arts Residency Program in Wood 2023 | Fri, August 4, 2023 | 5:30 – 8:00 pm | In-person Event

Walk-in’s Welcome

The Museum’s annual summer exhibition represents the culmination of the Windgate Wood Arts Residency Program (WARP-Wood), a two-month arts residency program. In this exhibition, the international group of artists presents work created during the residency, which emphasizes research, exploration, and the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment. Now in its twenty-sixth year, this renowned residency offers artists specializing in the material of wood the opportunity to test their vision and skill, while developing connections with colleagues, collectors, and the city of Philadelphia.

This year’s fellows, listed below, will bring immersive and installation sculpture, furniture and woodworking, kinetic sculpture, and research to the Museum’s exhibition space.

Emma Chorostecki | Toronto, Ontario
