"Draw the Line," the 13th annual Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition, features the 2017 Meyer Family Award for Contemporary Art recipients Kelley Donahue (Brooklyn, NY), Joanna Platt (Philadelphia, PA) and Paul Santoleri (Philadelphia, PA). Drawing with ink, clay, and conduit, these artists investigate the permeable borders between internal and external matter, perception, and experience. Accessing both intuition and intellect, drawing and memory are the basis for inquiry. Their videos, installations, and sculptures create new worlds that illuminate and activate our galleries to create seductive narratives, uncanny characters, and immersive environments. A free opening reception and artist talk will be held on Friday, March 10 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Learn more at the special artist workshops, "Wire Sculpture and Soldering Workshop" on April 6, and "A Collaborative Drawing & Painting Experience" on May 13.

When thinking of artists, one does not typically imagine organized individuals who follow the rules; yet, granting institutions expect precisely that in their applications. This informative and exciting one and a half hour presentation is focused on helping artists write grant proposals and budgets to get the money they need to be the messy rule breakers they want to be. Minimum enrollment needed to run each lecture, so please don't wait to register. $10 for both members and non-members. Sign up by calling 610.525.0272 or by visiting www.mainlineart.org.
Now that you have made digital copies of your artwork, what do you do with the file? Every competition, gallery, and exhibition has its own submission requirements. Photoshop is the answer.

Next, you'll learn about managing RAW files and understanding file formats, developing a reliable workflow, learning the menus and toolbars, image resizing, resolution, adjustment layers, selection tools, image retouching, non-destructive editing techniques, and sharpening. $35 members/$40 Non-Members. Please register by calling 610.525.0272 or by visiting www.mainlineart.org. Minimum enrollment needed to run each program, so please don't wait to register.

Back by popular demand. The class starts off in the gallery, where you can enjoy whichever beer, wine or other beverage enhances your creativity while viewing the Art Center's latest exhibition. Afterwards, head downstairs to the Ceramics Studio for a fun intro on the art of pottery. The workshop will be divided into two parts to incorporate an introduction to wheel throwing and handbuilding in clay. At the end, you'll have made your very own mug. Whether you are looking for a unique alternative to the typical date night or planning a fun night out with the girls (or guys!), this is the event for you. Space is very limited; register early. This is a BYOB event. Fired pieces will be available for pick-up 3-4 weeks after workshop. Please provide an e-mail address for notification.
