Looking Out / Looking In: A Philadelphia Center for the Book Members' Exhibition

How do artists come by their ideas, their subject matter? Perhaps a need to articulate something internal, or maybe the opposite - a passion to understand and communicate something about the outside world. Sometimes however, looking out generates introspection, or the opposite. This exhibit reflects that entanglement. Most works are on exhibit. All may be viewed online.
