Doris Staffel: Painter, Teacher
July 28 – September 30, 2012
Doris Staffel (born 1921), a former student of both Philip Guston and Hans Hofmann, is one of Philadelphia's preeminent abstract painters and colorists. In honor of her long commitment to the city's arts community, Woodmere will present an exhibition of fourteen paintings and works on paper by Staffel from Woodmere's collection, pieces that represent the various phases of her career from the 1940s to the present, along with loans from public and private collections. Read more >>
Generations: Louise Fishman, Gertrude Fisher-Fishman, and Razel Kapustin 
October 13, 2012 – January 6, 2013
The exhibition explores the relationships between the art of Louise Fishman (b. 1939) and the work of both her mother Gertrude Fisher-Fishman (b. 1916) and her aunt Razel Kapustin (1908-1968). Key pieces by the three artists, each of whom is represented in Woodmere's collection, will be exhibited together, underscoring the pictorial, philosophical, and emotive relationships between three distinct artistic voices. Learn More >>
