The Bridgette Mayer Gallery in partnership with exhibition space host, Arts + Crafts Holdings, is pleased to organize its 7th Benefit Exhibition supporting Friends of the Rail Park, a nonprofit organization that is transforming unused highline railway tracks into vibrant public spaces in Philadelphia.
From September 7th to October 5th, the exhibition will be the largest yet in presenting paintings, photographs, collages, and mixed media from over 200 curated artists encompassing various styles and techniques. Artist’s works will be featured on either 10”x10” panels or 24”x24” panels.
This benefit will help kick start Phase II of Friends of the Rail Park three-phase plan to renovate train tracks into green space spanning multiple neighborhoods of Philadelphia. Each work will be sold for $500 for 10” x 10” panels or $2,000 for 24” x 24” panels done by esteemed and renowned artists. This exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for established collectors and new collectors to purchase high quality art at amazing prices - some of the artworks in the exhibition retail for $5,000 to $20,000. 25% of the proceeds will benefit The Rail Park.
About The Rail Park:
Founded in 2010, Friends of the Rail Park will aim to convert two historic Reading Railroad lines into a three-mile park. The park will consist of three distinct sections. The first section is the recently completed Viaduct, a half mile long elevated park. The following section is known as the Cut which serves as an open air connector to the Viaduct to the last section: the Tunnel – which consists of vaulted stone and brick ceilings, natural light, and spans over 3,000 feet long. Once fully completed, The Rail Park will serve as a community connector, allowing for recreational activities, as well as arts and education, health and wellness to the Philadelphia community.
