ARTsisters First Year Anniversary Event at Wolf Block
Here's What I Was Up To Last Week ...
Leslie and Linda - Gift-giving
ARTsisters is a group of 20+ emerging women artists, of which I have been a member since March of 2006. Co-founded by Linda Dubin Garfield and Leslie deBrocky, our purpose is to venture out into the art world together, to encourage, support and share with each other in our aim to succeed in our art careers. You can read more about us when you visit:

Wednesday night (January 10th) we celebrated completing our first year together with an anniversary party/group exhibition on the 26th floor of Wolf Block at 1650 Arch Streets, Philadelphia, PA.
It was attended by a wonderfully diverse mix of people which kept the conversations interesting. Music by Patricia Brightful and Somethin' Different Jazz Ensemble delighted the crowd as did the unusual selections of beverages selected by Leslie DeBrocky.

Each ARTsister exhibited one piece of original artwork. As always, I was pleasantly amazed at the variety of styles one finds in any group of artists. We Artsisters are similar in our mission to succeed, but our work is expressed in very different ways!
My latest painting, "Proud Sycamore" was finished just barely in time for the show!
