Local printmaker Terri Fridkin’s first solo show entitled “In Reverse” at MUSE Gallery, 52 N. 2nd Street in Old City Philadelphia extending through November 2nd, 2014 is included in POST, Philadelphia Open Studio Tours on Saturday and Sunday, October 25th and 26th, from 12 noon until 6 PM.
Fridkin’s current hand-pulled prints, are simple and complex, bold and subtle, yet resist a fixed meaning. The underpinnings of her work are structure, pattern, line and color. They provide a comforting sense of order to counteract the uncertainty and chaos that exists in our world today. This vision is derived from Fridkin’s design background and years of meticulous and precise renderings.
The artist’s creative process is guided by inks, matrices, and paper to produce a strong graphic imagery. This is achieved by using multiple plates with transparent and opaque layers of soy- based inks, water-based inks and acrylics. Fridkin is drawn to the technical aspects of printmaking and the sudden effects generated through the press. She is inspired by experimentation, invention and discovery.
A National Honor Society Graduate of Drexel University Nesbitt College of Design Arts, Fridkin worked in the industry for several years and took countless classes in different media, ultimately finding her expression in printmaking. With a lifelong passion for art, she then left teaching to study printmaking at studios and art centers in New York and Pennsylvania. Since exhibiting her work in 2012, Fridkin has been in numerous invitational and juried shows. Selected exhibitions include Woodmere Art Museum, The State Museum of Pennsylvania, City Hall in Philadelphia, Widener University and multiple art centers and diverse venues in the tristate area. Fridkin is a member of Muse Gallery, and a juried member of The American Color Print Society and The Cheltenham Guild of Printmakers.

The art of henna (called mehndi in Hindi & Urdu) has been practiced for over 5000 years in Pakistan, India, Africa and the Middle East. There is some documentation that it is over 9000 years old. Because henna has natural cooling properties, people of the desert, for centuries, have been using henna to cool down their bodies. They make a paste of henna and soak their palms and soles of the feet in it to get an air conditioning affect. They feel its cooling sensation throughout the body for as long as the henna stain remains on their skin. Initially, as the stain faded away, it left patterns on the skin surface which led to ideas to make designs for decorative purposes. In the ancient Egyptian times mummies wore henna designs and it is documented that Cleopatra herself used henna for decorative purposes.
Henna was not only a popular adornment for the rich but the poor, who could not afford jewelry, used it to decorate their bodies as well.
HENNA IN THE WEST
Today people all over the world have adopted the ancient traditions of adorning their bodies with the beautiful natural artwork created from the henna plant. People throughout the west have adopted the eastern tradition in their lives by having their hands and feet painted for weddings, bellies painted while in pregnancy, heads adorned with henna while going through chemotherapy, scars camouflaged to make them unnoticeable, etc.

A visit to the Salvatore Dali Museum in Figueres and to Dali's home in Port Lligat on the Costa Brava, Spain, was inspiration in 2006 for Peter to enroll in the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Art for art classes and the beginning of a delightful endeavor that has lead Peter Brothman to this window exhibit of some of his artwork. He paints in oils and considers himself a colorist at this point in his painting career. Many of the canvases have philosophic thought and spirituality as the underpinning and represent abstractions on these themes. Peter is continuing his art classes at the Main Line Art Center under the guidance of Kassem Amoudi.
When not painting, Peter practices Endodontics in Bala Cynwyd, teaches at the graduate level at Albert Einstein Medical Center and adores family life with his eight grandchildren.
Peter's work will be on display and for sale at Merion Art & Repro during the month of October.
