If there were words to describe this coming art opening at the Chapterhouse, I’d use them to articulate how cool everything is. But since there aren’t, I can only advise you to stop by this Friday October 11th to check out some new and amazing works by Miguel Co, Susan Crawford & Eleanor Grosch. Your mind will be blown and you can warm up with a chocolate salted carmel latte with almond milk to get your bearings straight after that happens. Hope to see y’all there, y’all!

This Friday @ Chapterhouse Cafe & Gallery
620 S. 9th St. in Philadelphia
starts at 7pm

Art Opening • Summer 2013


Samantha Mera-Candedo & Aaron Kent Warder

With each new art show comes new possibilities.  Time goes on and things change, but new art at the Chapterhouse will not. But once the show was two months long, and then three; to satiate the eager viewer, lingering on in that quiet moment when they are taken somewhere else: allowing them to gaze upon the newly garnished plaster and look inside to the artist within and ask: What the f*ck is that?  To which they might reply: I have no idea, but it’s pretty cool.
