DVAA @ Atria Center City, 150 N 20th Street, 5th floor
Gallery hours: 9am–5pm

This month, DVAA artist Mark Conti will be showing!

Opening Reception: 02/28 Thursday 4:00-6:00pm
Closing Reception: 3/31 Sunday 4:00-6:00pm

Conti, an Eastern Pennsylvania photographer, has worked and exhibited over the last 45 years. His photographs are in many private collections as well as that of the Woodmere Art Museum and the Juniata College Museum of Art. He works in both film and digital media and specializes in landscape and abstraction. In this show, "IN THE MIND'S EYE," Conti examines the process of finding physical abstractions in the external world which mirror images in his mind (imagination). This series simultaneously represents the internal and external worlds as experienced by the artist with the unconscious functioning as the bridge between the two sides of the camera.

Portraits and Such III: Less Portraits, More Such
a solo exhibition hosted @ DVAA in Gallery 1

Works of art in various media by DVAA artist member Mike Pavol

March 17th - April 7th
- Public Opening Reception: Sunday, March 17th, noon-5pm

Gallery hours: Thurs - Sun, noon-5pm

Ricocheting between oil painting, shrinky dink, and ball-point pen on paper, Mike Pavol's work of the past couple of years continues to explore representation, process versus product, artifact and reproduction, and things he finds just plain old interesting. And, in his own words, he “continues his perfect record of being unable to reconcile any of it into a cohesive statement.” Join us at DVAA to experience Mike’s hard work, strong paintings, mixed media, and sense of humor.

Rochelle “Rockie” Toner was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. She attended the University of Northern Iowa as an undergraduate and received her MFA from the University of Illinois. In 1972 Toner began teaching at Tyler School of Art/Temple University where she taught drawing and printmaking for thirty years. From 1976 to 1979 she taught in Tyler’s study abroad program in Rome Italy. The last thirteen years at Tyler, Toner served as Dean of the School. Toner retired from full time teaching and administrative work in 2002. Toner’s studio work has always been related to and inspired by her interest in and fascination by the forces of nature and an exploration of the dynamics of gender and sexuality. Her work has been exhibited widely and is held in numerous public and private collections. In 2010 she was honored by the Southern Graphics Council International as Printmaker Emeritus. This past fall, 2018, Toner had a one person survey of her work at the Philadelphia Print Center, including over 50 pieces in etching, drawing and collage.
