On view in the Berton and Sallie Korman Galleries of the Philadelphia Museum of Art are eighteen works by Edna Andrade and six drawings by Warren Rohrer. Joining them are two-dozen works on paper and a sculpture by Bill Walton. Each of the artists spent more than thirty years as artists and art educators in the city of Philadelphia. The museum acquired a diverse range of works by Andrade including preparatory sketches and significant works on paper, many of which are on view for the first time.
Edna Andrade was one of the pioneers of Op Art and devoted her career to investigating the possibilities of geometric abstraction.
This exhibition from the permanent collection of Prints and Drawing is an exciting representation of the museum’s continued investment in the legacy of significant Philadelphia artists. The works will be on view in the Korman galleries (#121-123) through April.
