Since 2009, Mount Airy Contemporary’s programming has focused on providing low key, high quality art experiences to the local northwest Philadelphia community.  That experience has afforded us the opportunity to meet and work with artists who make their homes in the northwest.  In this exhibition we assemble a small selection of these artists whose works and practices we believe have common threads – focal points where conversation can be had.
