Abington Art Center
Solo Series 2010: Cynthia Back, Bruce Campbell and Mickie Rosen
After celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2009, Abington Art Center is continuing its long history of highlighting regional talent with a series of simultaneous solo exhibitions by amazing artists. The "Solo Series" artists are carefully selected by a curatorial committee. "Solo Series 2010" featuring Cynthia Back (reduction relief prints), Bruce Campbell (text-based installation) and Mickie Rosen (photage) is part of the Independent Project component of Philagrafika 2010, an international festival that celebrates contemporary art that references printmaking in dynamic, unexpected ways, running late January to mid April, throughout the Philadelphia region.
Cynthia Back (Lansdowne, PA) is a printmaker and painter who is working with Reduction Relief Prints. Back has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe. She received her BFA at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and studied at Wimbledon School of Art and St. Martin’s School of Art in London, England.
Bruce Campbell's new text-based installation entitled "Beyond the Folds" is being created specifically for Abington Art Center's Solo Series. Campbell (Philadelphia, PA) has his MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. Rebekah Templeton Contemporary Art mounted his first solo show in Philadelphia in 2008.
Mickie Rosen calls her mixed media works, "Photages" which are created by combining manipulated digital photographs with elements from her drawings, monotypes and collagraphs. Rosen (Elkins Park, PA) spent the majority of her career as an art therapist and group psychotherapist before retiring in 2000. She graduated from Tyler School of Art at 38 years old with a BFA and attained a MS in Art Therapy from Hahnemann University.
