Jonathan Demme and Material Culture are planning a very large exhibit and auction at Material Culture in Philadelphia in March, 2017. This show, entitled “Heart of the Collection” will feature 300-400 pieces comprised of American Self-Taught, Haitian, Jamaican, and African and artworks from the collections of Jonathan Demme and Charles Ford Wheeler. The actual auction will take place at 11AM EST, on March 19th, but the exhibit will be on display from March 4th – 18th. (11AM-5PM). This should be a wonderful opportunity to see a sizeable portion of Jonathan’s Haitian collection, in addition to the other works on display.

Material Culture will be hosting a Special Pre-Auction Exhibition Party with Live Music & Refreshments, Saturday, March 18, 7pm-11pm | RSVP Required: info@materialculture.

In addition, Tony Fisher will be hosting a Peruvian and Haitian exhibit and reception on Friday night, March 17th at his Indigo Gallery, 1400 N American St # 104, Philadelphia, PA 19122 at around 5PM.
