Who am I? | 6-8 pm
This existential question has notoriously baffled and provoked philosophers and introspective minds since time immemorial, yet no answer remains satisfactory. Convinced of our individuality, how can we be placed in a box – how can our identities be placed upon us? In the search for identity, the yoga texts prompt one to take the road less traveled by – to look beyond the mind and body, for a deeper realization of the self.
Come out for our Friday Wisdom Series for a fresh perspective, like-minded souls, and a mouth-watering feast!

While the rise of social media helps students to connect, networking between these students is slim, and communication is often limited to those attending school together. AIGA Jefferson created Unity: A Poster Gala, to empower and encourage young designers to keep doing what they love to do while bridging the communication gap between us.
Through this, we also aim to encourage the creation of more AIGA student groups in the greater Philadelphia region, as well as the implementation of student run events through AIGA. More student groups and events, will help continue to inspire students to do things for themselves, while uniting together to share ideas and connect with one another.

This collection of works explores the relationship between imagery and object qualities. Field and Howard use found objects, untraditional surfaces, and a variety of materials and techniques to take societal myths and reconstruct them with a sense of curiosity and playfulness.
is a Philadelphia based artist working in painting, drawing, sculpture, and bookmaking. She is interested in the interaction between what is familiar and unfamiliar – this concept is explored through collision of myth and the natural world with science fiction and advancing technology. Her work places a strong emphasis on image, but utilizes a variety of materials and techniques to affect how the viewer interacts with or relates to the object. She’s inspired by comics, video games, getting lost in wikipedia, and her cat.
is a Philadelphia based artist primarily working on two-dimensional works with sculptural elements. She is interested in using art to play with human perception and ideas of kitsch and domesticity. These works frequently utilize craft materials as well as found objects and imagery. Her aesthetic is influenced by her academic background in biology, her childhood on the internet, as well as a love of fashion-based reality competition shows.
This show will feature a SLIME TABLE

City Arts Salon at Sharktown

an irregular rising and falling in number or amount; a variation.
Join us as we close our current exhibit “Fluctuation” It has been one of our most spectacular shows. We hope that you get a chance to see it.
Enjoy an evening of art, music, food, and stimulating conversation, the City Arts Salon proudly present “fluctuation” featuring the art of Amir Lyles, Keshida Layone, Robb Spath and Kenny White.
Amir Lyles was born and grew up in Harlem, NYC, where he attended arts-focused public schools. A talented illustrator, Lyles is extremely versatile in media and subject matter. Past and present life experience, multi-cultural history and legacy, as well as so-called classical works all influence his style. A returning CAS exhibitor, Lyles has shown in numerous galleries and art events since his first solo show at Diverse Arts Gallery, Austin, TX, in 2009. He has since been commissioned by authors, musicians, and other visual artists, and has private and institutional collectors across the country and around the world. From 2014-2016, Lyles and his family owned and operated S.O.N. A.R.T. Gallery and Gift Shop in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia.
Keshida Layone is a native New Yorker, born and raised on Long Island, where he was nurtured from an early age to find his own path as an artist by a loving tribe of women and a few good men. Layone is self-taught and inspired by all things in nature and space. Painting on old canvas found in junk yards and second hand stores, and on wood surfaces thrown out by construction sites, Layone feels that “every fiber of his emotions is bled onto the canvas, the highs and lows of being a human on Earth.” He has been accepted on the Bridgeman Library Images website, one of the world’s leading specialists in the distribution of fine art, cultural and historical media for reproduction. He has exhibited in group art shows, coffee shops, restaurants, and galleries in New York, North Carolina, and Philadelphia.
Robb Spath is a native of Oswego, NY, and has a BFA in Theatre Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He has exhibited his work at the William Way Community Center, as well as multiple times at Off The Wall Gallery at Dirty Frank’s in Philadelphia. His work has also been featured in ARTDICTION, Not Random Art, and most recently in CARPAZINE magazine.
