Two Philadelphia artists who created entirely different bodies of work in their careers but whose art displayed a similarly strong desire for personal expression are being remembered in memorial exhibitions this month and next. Charles Searles (1937- 2004), a West Philadelphia-born African American artist who studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and taught at Philadelphia College of Art (now University of the Arts) is the subject of four shows. Two of them - at the La Salle University Art Museum and Temple University's Tyler School of Art - grew out of exhibition seminars taught last fall at both colleges and were largely developed by undergraduate and graduate students who took the courses.

Hoffman, "A Sense of Place" doesn't try to hammer home the point that a good deal of fiber/textile art has become nearly indistinguishable from contemporary art - or to make the case that it has stayed true to its roots.
