March 9 – April 21, 2015
Tweak of Nature, the 11th annual Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition, features the 2015 winners of the Meyer Family Award for Contemporary Art: Seunghwui Koo (New York), Tasha Lewis (New York), and Kate Stewart (Philadelphia). The exhibition hosts photo-based constructions, whimsical sculpture, large scale paintings, and site-specific installation. Manipulating and tweaking our perception of nature and its creatures, these artists create new beings and realities that surprise, challenge, and delight.
For the past decade, Main Line Art Center has presented an exhibition each spring in memory of Teaching Artist Betsy Meyer featuring the work of forward-thinking artists who are pushing boundaries within their artistic practice. As an artist, Betsy exemplified what is most exciting about engaging with the artwork of living artists: watching them experiment with their media and tackling complicated and tough subjects. As a teacher, she encouraged her students to follow her example and expand their practice into new frontiers. And finally, as a member of the board and exhibition committee, she assured that the Art Center was there for the artistic community of Philadelphia.
