      Frank Bramblett: No Intention
    • Sunday, April 19, 2015
    • This career retrospective explores four decades of work by Frank Bramblett (born 1947), one of Philadelphia's most admired artists and teachers. His work is rooted in the minimalist practices of the late 1960's and 1970's, and has evolved through a consistent interrogation of the process through which art is created. A professor of art in the Painting, Drawing, Sculpture department at Temple University's Tyler School of Art for almost forty years, Bramblett's work has been featured in national and international exhibitions, including the Galleries at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, Bykert Gallery and Mary Boone Gallery in New York, and Arsenal Gallery in Bialystok, Poland.
