Your WCA: Simone Spicer
Simone Spicer is a long time Philadelphia WCA member and is currently serving on our by laws committee. Simone is just a joy to be around; she is so humble about her work- which is truly remarkable! Simone has graciously offered to host a studio visit in 2016.
She received the Amelia Walker sculpture prize from the Woodmere Museum of Art in Philadelphia in 2013, and was awarded honorarium by New Hope Art Center for sculpture and was invited into the exhibition, ‘New Media’ there. Simone was included in a national travelling exhibit organized by the NYC Chapter of WCA, juried by Eleanor Heartney, titled ‘The Petroleum Paradox’, which traveled from Denise Bibro Fine Arts in NYC to Narrows Art Center in Fall River Massachusetts. Simone has exhibited her works in trash at The Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia, Sandy Spring Museum in Maryland, and Porter Contemporary Gallery in NYC.
In addition to participating in numerous juried exhibitions in galleries, educational institutions and alternative spaces, Simone recently spoke on a panel at Flomenhaft Gallery in NYC, titled ‘Art, Activism, and Global Warming’. The discussion was organized by the NYC Chapter of the WCA, and speakers included four artists and chief climatologist of NASA’s Goddard Space Institute on Climate Change, Dr. Gavin Schmidt.
