Cooperative Studio Traction Company is Helping Artists Exchange Resources

The artists collective’s July 1 opening reception will be held at PAFA

 

Traction Company, an artist cooperative and studio based in West Philadelphia, was founded by, and is comprised of Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts alumni, faculty and staff. Its mission is “to provide an environment where established, emerging and transitioning artists can expand on their artistic practice in a cooperative setting.” The group also promotes the exchange of the resources and knowledge of its members through the sharing tools and facilities necessary for making artwork.

In a new exhibition at PAFA, Traction Company collaborates on new group pieces, including a full-scale recreation of one of the truss structures from their studio, as well as works made by the individual artists.

The public opening reception will be held Wednesday, July 1 from  6:30 p.m.  to 9:00 p.m. at the Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building. More info is available on PAFA’s website.
