Friday November 1st: Opening of Obolus at Sphinx & Snakeskin in Philly

Posted by Stephanie Crumley on

 

Philly seems to be brimming with exquisite art these days, and this Friday is no exception. On November 1st, Obolus: Original Artwork from Jamie Draven & Heather Gabel is opening at Sphinx & Snakeskin from 5-10PM. The show features the text based and collage pieces of Heather Gabel and the paintings of Jamie Draven. 

 

"OBOLUS, is a reference to Charon’s obol. A coin placed with the dead before burial as payment, or bribe, to the ferryman who conveyed souls across the river that divides the world of the living from the world of the dead. This tradition has crossed cultures and regions, to leave ‘grave goods’ ; some such as gold foiled crosses, to further passage into the afterlife of all those lost. In a non traditional interpretation, this journey is not only of those in death, but also in life - standing at the rivers edge of ourselves," said exhibiting artist Jamie Draven. 

 

Both artists will be in attendance and will be selling their original work as well as prints. You definitely don't want to miss this if you're in the Tri-state area.
