The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe is the story of nine young women from a competitive high school soccer team as they push and train for games while also navigating the trials and tribulations of their fast-changing lives.

Call for Artists: International Women’s Day 2020

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) is holding an open call for women members to submit for our event celebrating “International Women’s Day,” happening March 8th at our new space, 7054 Germantown Ave. Philadelphia, PA.

International Women’s Day …

The theme for this exhibit is Art + Politics. Submitting artists should address: being a woman artist today, what does inclusion look like to you?, human rights, how politics affects art. This is not a juried show, all pieces will be displayed.

The Mt. Airy Art Garage invites submissions for a member exhibit to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD). IWD holds space to welcome the voices of those who have been marginalized and oppressed by the gender binary’s rigidly defined category of “woman”. We see this category as more fluid and open than in the past. We invite submissions of artwork that explores the artist’s personal experience of identifying with the many aspects of femaleness or femininity in their lives.

Open Call for Artists: Speaking Our Truth

Mt. Airy Art Garage, in partnership with The Philadelphia Theatre Company at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, is having an Open Call for Artists

February 14 – March 8, 2020

Application Deadline: Sunday, January 26, 2020.

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) is holding an open call for artists to submit for “Speaking Our Truth,” happening from February 14 – March 8, 2020 at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre at 480 S. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA., 19146.

Speaking Our Truth is the second of three exhibits MAAG will mount at The Philadelphia Theatre Company this season in conjunction with their production of Everything is Wonderful. We encourage artists to submit up to two (2) pieces of work to be on display and for sale in this upcoming exhibit. The themes for this exhibit include overcoming tragedy, finding the strength to move on with our lives, the power of reconciliation, and surrendering to forgiveness. Themes for submitting artists to ask: How do we live with disillusionment and anger? Do we truly forgive? Can we resolve past pain, hurt, and issues of abandonment?

Everything is Wonderful by Chelsea Marcantel is the story of an Amish couple that exhibits an act of unfathomable forgiveness after their two sons are killed in a car accident. It speaks of the traditions of Amish life and the very defined roles of women and men within the family and the community. As the family struggles to cling to their way of life, they are forced to find a way forward inside their insular community, practicing mercy and forgiveness to heal the wounds of the past.
