Optical Fiber Opens Friday


Opening Friday, March 2nd, 2012, 7-10 pm
March 2nd through March  31st

In conjunction with Fiber Philadelphia, Space 1026 is proud to present Optical Fiber, a group exhibition exploring the diversity of fiber arts.  Though varied in technique and discipline all of the artists challenge the characteristics and attitudes usually associated with fiber arts resulting in unconventional textiles pushing the limits of functionality and aesthetics.  Please join us for an opening reception Friday, March 2nd from 7-10 pm at 1026 Arch St.

Optical Fiber features work by New Friends, Takashi Iwasaki, Annie Larson, Erin M Riley, Allison Watkins and Megan Whitmarsh.

Matt Leines Greatest Hits will feature the perfect art gifts for Men, Children, Man Children, Grandchildren, Boyfriends, Girlfriends, Friends, and all sorts of Ladies. You won’t want to miss it!

Matt Leines has shown his work all over the place. From well known party spots/art galleries in New York and Los Angeles to Spanish Museums and Japanese music festivals. He had a book come out called You Are Forgiven in 2008. This will be among his first proper showings in Philadelphia, the town he calls home, since his arrival three years ago. Sorry for the one week delay in the show opening, the artist had a little bike accident which almost left him a cyclops. For more info surf on over to

This is the event of the season!

Alternate Universe Opening This Friday!


Alternate Universe

Chelsea Coon and Emily Bowser
July 1st – July 29th, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, July 1st, 7 – 10 pm

The imaginary world created will speak of the endless possibilities of what can exist in space. The playful nature is intentional to help to ease the idea of worlds existing other than our own. Through the tangled mass of parallel universe tunnels opening up into an alternate worlds landscape, we are depicting a world exclusive from what we know that is beautiful, bizarre, and asks the question of where the real ends and the unreal begins. When is imagination more of a necessity for understanding than scientific fact? Through a tangible interactive setting the mind will explore ideas of the intangible such as the origins of life or the elements fundamental for the creation. The installation will cause the viewers to consider what lies beyond the realms of what we know.

Come by this Friday to see this incredible installation and eat some cotton candy!
