Philadelphia artist Abby Schmidt works in three mediums – melted wax on backlit acrylic panels, melted wax on framed plywood, and paint on plywood. Her pieces investigate the lifestyle of children, spurred by questions of the economy of food and politics of war. Waxed opens tonight at Area 919 and runs to July 18, 2009.

Area 919 is located at 919 N. 5th, Philadelphia, PA.
