Tyler Park Center for the Arts asks you to put aside your preconceived notions of what is “feminine” in a new gallery exhibit, “Manifestations of the Feminine,” opening November 22. “Is it feminine just because it is made by a woman? Is it not feminine because it isn’t pastel, or harmonious, or any other stereotype about how femininity is manifested in art?,” asks Jennifer Miller, Tyler Park Center for the Arts’ executive director and one of the artists exhibiting in this group show. “We want people to challenge themselves—and us—when they view this exhibit.”

In addition to a new pottery series from Miller, created specifically for this exhibit, “Manifestations of the Feminine” features small-scale work by the celebrated
Philadelphia-based sculptor Won Choi and new work by Gloria Kosco, a ceramicist who has been active in both the Bucks County art scene and the national ceramics.

The opening reception on Saturday, November 22, doubles as an evening-length concert featuring Jackie Bobbi and Justin Rudy, Tina Margot, and Michael
Notarangelo and Samuel Haines, a suitably eclectic mix of singer-songwriters and instrumentalists. The concert begins at 7 p.m. A $15 entry fee supports the
musicians and includes one complimentary drink.“Manifestatons of the Feminine” is on view at Tyler Park Center for the Arts, 10 Stable Mill Road in Richboro, Pa., from November 22 through December 21. The gallery is open to the public on Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment Sunday through Friday.

Tyler Park Center for the Arts uses the power of art as a tool for community and civic pride. The center aims to support artists and artisans in a manner that
facilitates sharing their talents with the Bucks County area community through art-based educational programs. Learn more and find driving directions at
