About the Artists:
Jere Edmunds is a Philadelphia artist, producer, filmmaker and performer. He studied at Pennsylvania State University, New York University and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. His recent art exhibitions in the city include “Citizen's Eye: A Kaleidoscope of Nature” at The Schuylkill Center, January 21th to March 21th 2021, and “Botanical Inspirations” at Cerulean Arts Gallery-Studio, September 1st to 26th 2021.

This year, Jere will present his artwork at The Philadelphia Flower Show for the first time.
The photographs presented at Allens Lane Art Center come from the reflective opportunities that came to Jere during the pandemic. As described for his exhibition at Cerulean Arts Gallery:
“With a discerning filmmaker's eye for composition, photographer Jere Edmunds captures chance moments of sunlight through translucent petals or raindrops on blossoms from his daily travels through the city.”
