Though it never officially closed during the COVID-19 pandemic or in the midst of renovations, the Phil will hold a symbolic grand reopening celebration on Saturday, Oct. 14, to reintroduce the building and its new roster of artists.
Raphaella Vaisseau, Lori Portka and Stephen Lange reflect on how themes of love have been a consistent force in their creative lives.
Local artist Stephen Lange sent Xpress a note that a work in progress, a “2-foot by 6-foot diptych, brown stained wood towards the periphery with 8 red zigzag sunrays/lightning bolts in the center,” was taken from the area outside of his Wedge-building studio in the River Arts District. Lange asks that “If anyone sees this painting, please let the artist know. I’m on the second floor of the Wedge building.” See Lange’s full bulletin in this post.
