Part of CraftNOW's Craft Month, Confluence: Teaching, Making, Ideation and Innovation is a group exhibition organized by guest curator Thora Jacobson, formerly the Executive Director of both the Philadelphia Art Alliance and the Fleisher Art Memorial.

Featuring the work of Dianne Koppisch Hricko, Doug Bucci, Caroline Gore, Adela Akers, Anna Boothe, Matthew Courtney, Mei-ling Hom, Wendy Osterweil, Jessica Jane Julius, Jon F. Clark, and Susan Hagen, this exhibition celebrates the interconnectedness of local institutions and the influence of teaching artists on colleagues and contemporary makers.

Philadelphia has been a leader in craft and materials-based work since colonial times, and particularly with the growth of art schools over the past 200+ years. Critical to that reputation is the teaching and practicing artists who have influenced generations of students and apprentices. These eleven artists have been invited to participate with work that is about both their teaching and personal practice and to consider how those joint practices intersect, align and diverge over time and circumstances.

Confluence: Teaching, Making, Ideation and Innovation focuses on artists who have an impact, not just in art schools but also in the community and other settings, and not just in their material discipline. They range from new faculty to ACC fellows, and they are as distinguished as practitioners and innovators as they are mentors and masters.

This exhibition is part of CraftNOW's Craft Month, a year-round the city-wide exhibition series with this year's theme as 'Making a Difference'. This program gives visitors many places to discover how craft promotes positive change, social cohesion, and meaningful dialogue.
