"Deemed a Canvas" channels storytelling through a range of artistic mediums. This curation of creators takes a light-hearted look at what happens when artists break away from the starkness of white ground to explore surface with unexpected materials and unconventional methods.

Traditional mediums tossed aside; their work becomes a creatively visual opportunity to converse, to find new and inventive ways of handling space, structure, and content-
transforming the material so that it becomes something else than the novelty of the article itself.

Artists Kaplan Bunce, Danielle Clough, Ellen Greene, My Dog Sighs, Bunnie Reiss, Brooks Salzwedel, Suzanna Scott, Ruby Silvious, and Jasjyot Singh Hans use their skills and love of art to develop unique narratives.

The show's collision of perspectives offers the viewer an immersive experience into creative redevelopment that pays reverence to the foundation of concept and innovation.

Established February 2010, Paradigm Gallery + Studio started as a project between co-founders and curators, Jason Chen and Sara McCorriston, to create a space to make artwork, exhibit the work of their peers, and invite the members of the local community to make their own artwork in a welcoming gallery setting. Over the years, Paradigm Gallery + Studio has become a gallery of diverse contemporary artwork from around the world, while maintaining a focus on Philadelphia artists.

HAHA MAG was founded in 2010 by Ginger Rudolph to celebrate art in all its forms. By keeping our finger on the pulse of the art world, we hope to stimulate and awaken the desire for others to use art as a vehicle to shape the varying viewpoints of their communities. We continue to pursue that passion working with organizations that share the goal to advocate for greater arts accessibility.
