Storied Forms

  • The Halide Project 1627 North 2nd Street, 19122 (map)

The Halide Project is pleased to present the handcrafted photographic work of Marina Berio, Jackie Neale, Carla Shapiro, and Living Image 2018 grand prize winner Caitlyn Soldan in THP's fourth annual small group invitational exhibition, Storied Forms. Please join us for the opening reception Saturday, April 6th, from 5-9pm, with with an informative gallery talk (6:30pm) and refreshments sponsored by Castellino’s Italian Market and Moore Brothers Wine Company.

The artists in Storied Forms depict the human body utilizing a variety of photographic processes and styles to express concepts in a manner that encourages viewers to emotionally connect with the work, explore their individual reactions to it, and delve into the deeper meaning behind the ideas put forth by the artists. These artists provide a conceptual or emotional starting point from which viewers can embark upon their own personal journeys, create their own narratives, and form connections between themselves, the artists, the subjects, and humanity.
