Colleen Rudolf is an artist working in Philadelphia. She is heavily influenced by the natural world as well as Native American wisdom and philosophy. She employs a variety of mediums in an effort to study subjects and pay them tribute. Of particular interest to Rudolf is how humans occupy a middle ground between animal and machine. From You I Will Learn is a collection of sculpture, drawings, paintings and photographs that describe the artist’s perception of this predicament.

LMNL Gallery at Bluecadet
Opening May 1st: Tod Seelie’s Outland Empire
With Outland Empire, opening May 1st at Philadelphia’s LMNL Gallery, photographer Tod Seelie explores the eccentricities and underground of Southern California. Seelie’s photographs oscillate from depicting the forgotten vestiges of humanity to wild moments full of energy, always with his unique eye and penchant for exploration. Outland Empire is a reminder that the world is more than just carefully manicured people and places. There’s still a bit of dirt and magic out there, for now.
“Tod Seelie is like Jack Kerouac with a camera, capturing the guts of humanity while he lives it, but never forgetting that photography is an art. It’s something that many attempt and many more fake, but few actually achieve,” says LMNL Gallery curator RJ Rushmore.
Originally shot earlier this year as part of a residency with Superchief Gallery in Los Angeles, Seelie’s Outland Empire series is now making its way to the East Coast, along with a number of photos in the series that were not included in the original exhibition.
Seelie has photographed in over 25 countries on five different continents. His editorial and commercial photograph clients include TIME Magazine, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, Juxtapoz, Vans, and Vice, and his work has been exhibited at Mass MoCA and the Philadelphia Art Alliance. In 2013, Seelie published his first book of photography, BRIGHT NIGHTS: Photographs of Another New York, with Prestel Publishing. The book chronicles 15 years of living and shooting in NYC.
LMNL Gallery is a contemporary art gallery on Frankford Avenue in Fishtown, in the entrance to the offices of Bluecadet, an Emmy Award-winning digital agency that creates world-class websites, mobile apps, interactive installations, and immersive environments. Led by Bluecadet founder Josh Goldblum, gallery director Thomas Buildmore and curator RJ Rushmore, LMNL Gallery exhibits artists who are expanding the horizons of contemporary art in sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, and new media.
Outland Empire opens at LMNL Gallery on May 1st, First Friday, from 6-9pm. RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook. The exhibition will remain on view through May 29th by appointment. LMNL Gallery is located at 1526 Frankford Ave in Philadelphia, PA.
Outland Empire zines and Seelie’s recent book BRIGHT NIGHTS: Photographs of Another New York will be available for purchase at the opening reception.
In addition to the exhibition at LMNL Gallery, Superchief Gallery NYC will be presenting Outland Empire at Tender Trap in Brooklyn. The exhibition at Tender Trap opens April 30th.

Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery presents Process: CASTING III
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – April 22, 2015 – Coming this May, the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery will be exhibiting our third installment of Process: CASTING. Mold making and casting are one of our core focuses at the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym and this exhibition will showcase cast sculpture from a variety of different media. Ten artists chosen for their skills will present varying techniques, yet all pieces have the common thread of requiring a mold to produce.
Alicia Courtney McCloskey
The opening reception will be First Friday, May 1st from 6 – 9pm. The exhibition runs from May 1st through 29th.
The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery is part of the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, a community based workshop space that operates like a gym membership. A monthly membership grants members access to a wood shop, metal shop, jewelry shop, forging area, ceramics area and a mold making and casting area. The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym also offers group classes in various processes from welding and woodworking, as well as “personal training” (one-on-one training sessions). Darla Jackson started the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym in 2011 with the help of a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Three stages of an artist; common themes among ink drawings, watercolors, and etchings.
The three bodies of work being presented show variation in process and materials. Spanning the consecutive stages of her career though, is the use of illustration to represent both nature and the female form. jodicachia.com

Illustrations portray a whimsical fantasy land. With graphite and colored pencils, she loves to draw ballerinas in colorful and interesting atmospheres, and illustrates images that remind her of children’s books. etsy.com/shop/jrsillustration
