With an astonishing facility for color and form, textures and text, and with a wildly prolific output, Sam Maitin became one of the most beloved and vital artists in Philadelphia. Known for his site-specific artworks, his amazing ability with collage, and his brilliant poster design, this exhibition features 30 prints newly added to the Woodmere Permanent Collection including Curwen Series prints, SANE Peace Awards, as well as other works rarely seen. Also, studies surrounding the creation of his site-specific projects (works of art in themselves) will reveal the joyful collision of play and intelligence that Sam placed in all he did.

Featured artists: Anne Canfield, Mike Cole, Sidney Goodman, Frank Hyder, Jane Irish, Kate Javens, Rob Matthews, Pamela McCabe, Sarah McEneaney, Susan Moore, Jen Packer, Sarah Roche, Hiro Sakaguchi, Bob Scheib, Charles Schmidt, Mark Shetabi, and Ira Upin.

    What are the values of Charles Schmidt’s original paintings? In particular, we have a commissioned watercolor with scales and periodic tables (chemistry lab) It was painted in 1979 and is about 30″x50″. A range of his art values would be enough. +r, where can I find the approximate value or price of his recent works?
    Many thanks!
