The Hicks Art Center Gallery at Bucks County Community College announces the opening of the group art exhibition, “Skull Sessions,” on view until Jan. 6, in the Hicks Art Center building on the campus of Bucks County Community College, 275 Swamp Road, Newtown.
From realism to narrative installation, the artworks in the exhibition represent a current survey of the range of genres in which artists among their art group peers are currently practicing.
The title of the exhibition takes its name from the strategy-building sessions that are more typically associated with athletics — especially football. In “Skull Sessions,” the art will speak for the artist with ideas shared and communicated to the viewers as if they are players on a united team.
Like an art fair format, the artworks and installations in “Skull Sessions” will be arranged within the areas of Hicks Art Center designated to the following 20 different artist-run collectives and cultural organizations in the Bucks County and Philadelphia regions:
African American Museum of Bucks County; Art at Kings Oaks; Arts and Cultural Council of Bucks County; ARTWRKD; Automat; fjord; Grizzly Grizzly; Newtown Historic Association; Past Present Projects; Peep Projects; Pink Noise Projects; Rush Arts Philadelphia; Space 1026; Termite TV Collective; The Upstairs Gallery of Bucks County; Vox Populi; Zach’s Crab Shack.
The groups will be represented by artworks or displays from their board members, curators, directors, or members at large, some of whom do not often exhibit their own works collectively. “Skull Sessions” will oﬀer a unique opportunity for the public to see the 20 participating artist-run spaces and cultural organizations in one location together for the ﬁrst time ever.
There will be an opening reception on Dec. 6, from 4 to 7:30 p.m. at Hicks Art Center. All are invited and welcome to meet the artists and cultural organizations’ members. Admission is free and open to the public.
Gallery hours are weekdays 9 a.m.–4 p.m. and Saturdays noon–4 p.m. The gallery will be closed in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday Nov. 22–25. For winter break, the gallery will be closed from Dec. 22 to Jan. 2.
