Diane Marimow

 

The  Parkway has long been the  home of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Rodin Museum.  The relocation of the Barnes from Merion to the Parkway  sparked a flurry of development and the designation of the neighborhood as the Philadelphia Museum District. The Park Towne Place apartment complex, which has rebranded itself as Museum District Residences,  hired a curator and acquired art to  fill the common areas of the complex and  an  art gallery that contains a permanent collection of about 100  works, many of them by Philadelphia artists.

The gallery has space for rotational exhibits.  Park Towne Place plans to have several public art openings each year.  “Constructing Organics” is the first show and is open until December 2016.

Diane Marimow  is  one of the Philadelphia artists whose work is showcased in the “Constructing Organics”  show.   I loved her massive  hand-built pieces that evoked memories of the seashore and marine life.
