Characters Welcome 6: An International Sticker Art Show

We’re really excited to announce the call for submissions for Characters Welcome 6: An International Sticker Art Show. We love the community of sticker artists that meet, exchange ideas and leave behind tokens of their amazing art here. Characters Welcome celebrates that community and reaches out to artists all over the world to show their best hand drawn and printed sticker art. Some photos from past Characters Welcome shows can be seen on our Instagram.

All are welcome to contribute to Characters Welcome 6. First time artists will be shown side by side with the seasoned titans. Stickers need not be character based. We prefer hand drawn stickers but printed, silk screened & collaged stickers are also very much welcome.

The stickers will be displayed in a show here on Friday September 15, 2017 from 7pm – 2am (21+) and Saturday September 16 from noon – 4pm (all ages). The boards with the compiled stickers as well as surplus sticker packs will be available for sale. We’ll have some very special raffle items and rad day of show surprises. 100% of ALL sales will go to benefit inspiring youth local arts programs.

We hope you will share your sticker art with us and the world through Characters Welcome and spread the word about the show to your fellow artists, friends and family. The creative exchange and collaboration of this show is at the very heart of what we love to do here at Mom’s.

The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2017. Please include your artist name, any Instagram or social media handles and as many stickers as you’d like! Submissions will not be returned.

Please mail all submissions to:

New Art Spotlight: Joe B

The fantastic paper cut art of Joe Boruchow has inspired us at Mom’s for years. From custom New Year’s posters to back door alley art to countless upstairs installations, Joe’s sharp wit and skill has always been a thrill to discover here.

 

The latest installation of bold large scale wheat pastes upstairs is from his new “Transition” series. His keen eye is never heavy handed but always on target. In the words of John F. Kennedy, “We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth.” Joe B’s art lets that truth shine brightly whether it’s on the street, in the gallery or upstairs here at Mom’s.

 

 

 

 

 

20 Years of Street Art Culture

From the first tag to the latest wheat paste, upstairs at TMom’s has been home to a rich history of local & international street art. Future archeologists will have a field day peeling back the layers of amazing art artifacts that cover every inch of the walls, ceilings, floors and doors here. This is an ever changing gallery: an un-curated & spontaneous outpouring of creativity by local & traveling artists and the countless visitors who leave their unique mark here nightly.

This one of a kind space is also home to an incredible variety of Philadelphia’s creative communities, a place to meet and exchange ideas. We’re proud to be the venue for amazingly diverse events: from pop up art shows to political meet ups, from literary readings to comedy and drag revues, from film screenings to arts fundraising parties there’s always something unexpected and fun happening here.

For those just looking to chill off the beaten South Street path, upstairs has a full bar, two pool tables, an award winning juke box, vintage lounge & amusement park ride car seating and good times every night.
