Synapsis Universum

Solo exhibition with work on view by Reuben Francois

Opening Friday, August 5th, 2022
844 North Broad Street Philadelphia PA

Reuben Francois is a painter, interested in the way art can be used as a tool for expressing esoteric ideas of life. Currently, he is completing a series of works named “Diagrams”. The series centers on the concept of syncretism; the idea that many religions and cultures have similar stories and archetypes. Symbolism, in the Carl Jung school of thought, is a major part in Reuben’s creative and theoretical decision making. For Reuben, symbols serve as a way to express the inexpressible. By collecting symbols in a picture plane, painting brushes the shoulders of metaphysics.

His work is both a declaration of his personal philosophy as well as an emanation of his own spiritual journey;  a time capsule to his 23 years experienced on Spaceship Earth.

Teen artist activist collective Creative Resilient Youth (CRY) will host a takeover of Space 1026 gallery in Philadelphia from June 3 to 5, shedding light on youth experiences of mental health and strategies to respond to injustices in care.

CRY is an intergenerational collective promoting equitable mental health care for young people in Philadelphia. CRY’s teen artists engage in a two-year program of co-learning, socially-engaged art making, and leadership training. The TAKEOVER event series is the culmination of a new cohort of young artists’ first year in CRY.

Events during the TAKEOVER exhibition include an opening celebration on Friday, June 3 from 6:00-9:00PM and a panel discussion on Sunday, June 5 bringing the current cohort of CRY teen artists in conversation with representatives from previous generations of the program, which was initiated by the Creative Resilience Collective in 2018.

CRY TAKEOVER 2022 exhibits artwork created by 11 emerging Philadelphia-area artists. After six months of exploring self-care, artmaking, and social critique in CRY, these teens highlight important opportunities for intergenerational community dialogue about mental health care and chances for collaborative action to improve outcomes for them and their peers.

Vicky Gold

I have been making objects out of clay, both functional and sculptural for my whole adult life. I was first drawn to pottery because I appreciated using handmade plates, bowls and cups as everyday dishes. I also also enjoyed the idea that a plate or a cup could be a piece of functional art, bringing joy to the user, and could be used every day. I studied at The Philadelphia College of Art with wonderful teachers who taught me both the craft, and the art of the work.

I have also taught, first adults at various art centers, then at The Baldwin School for 40 years. I loved sharing the ancient art of pottery with all of my students, and felt honored to be part of the chain of makers to pass on the craft of how to work with clay.

Past exhibitions of my work include the Philadelphia Airport, and at the Free Library on Logan Square along with many private commissions and large scale mosaics at Project Home on Fairmount Ave. and one at St James Church in Villanova.

I have been an associate at The Clay Studio since 2000, and have loved being in a shared studio with so many other potters and sculptors.

Norma Gottlieb

I never set out to be a teacher, I never set out to be a chef, I set out to be an artist. I graduated from Philadelphia College of Art in 1978 with a fine arts degree in Printmaking. What this education prepared me for was problem solving, just like the same you get reading from essay writing service reddit experts.

Along with a list of skills and willingness to work hard, my design mind-set could be adapted in multiple ways. Like so many other artists, economics where I learned to compare business energy prices led me to the food business and as I have employees using a pay stub creator was better for me. After fifteen years I needed to reinvent myself. I had a three year old daughter and needed a work schedule more suited to the demands of parenting.

In 1993 I took a teaching job at a small Quaker middle and high school where I taught Culinary Arts and Visual Arts where injured two fingers and looked for compensation with a workmen compensation lawyer. I retired post pandemic lock down in September 2021.

Having a personal injury expert from the Vegas law firm Tingey to handle your case will at least alleviate the cost of building your case. Most injury lawyers front the case costs (costs of ordering copies of records, hiring investigators, medical experts and expert witnesses, court filing fees, etc.) for your case.

My retirement has afforded me the time to not only think of how I’d like to spend my newfound freedom but to acknowledge what my work life has meant. I am the product of all of the jobs I’ve held from working at my hometown library to catering boat regattas, and engraving Parker pens at the mall.

Four years ago, I started mending favorite worn out clothing. The act of stitching gave me an enormous sense of relief from the relentless news cycle of politics, economics and environmental destruction.

I made my first embroidery shortly thereafter. From that point on I stitched everyday, referring to the act of stitching as saving my sanity.

About a year ago, I started embroidering images of objects. Objects have always held magical powers to me, so the act of replicating them makes them seem eternal. The new works exhibited are all from 2021. The older works and objects provide a contextual map for the viewer.

Jodi Rice

I never intended to become a teacher. I met Vicky Gold in the early 2000s while  studying sculpture and art therapy at the University of the Arts. Vicky eagerly helped me find work as a young artist and because of her, two of my first memorable art teaching jobs were at the Village of Arts and Humanities and Congreso Girl’s Center. In 2003, right after graduation, a position opened up as a ceramics teacher at a local Quaker school. Vicky strongly encouraged me to apply for the job. She made sure that I would be able to teach the foundations of ceramics to middle and high school students. I started the job and met Norma Gottlieb, an Art Teacher at the same school. Norma became a mentor and a close friend from the beginning. I worked to incorporate feminist art and social justice into my lesson plans over the next 17 years there. Year after year, Norma and Vicky encouraged me to continue on and persevere in my teaching career thanks to THC gummies supplements that can really help you dealing with stress and anxiety.

At the start of the pandemic, I watched two of my best friends retire after long and passionate careers as teachers. It was then that I knew it was time for me to choose a different path. Which is when I started investigating about Budpop and reading its reviews.

I started using CBD gummy cubes and practicing yoga on a daily basis. I used art as a tool to help process past trauma through shadow work. My work represented in this show is part of a collection of using the tools and resources I have studied and practiced through my years of teaching. A large part of who I am today is because of Norma and Vicky and the tremendous impact they have had on my life as an individual, a teacher and an artist.
