ARTsisters Reception of Ten Colorful Years: Photos!

Ten Years of ARTsisters! ...of women artists empowering their community and each other, through their art.

I am so lucky to be a part of this group. The reception was well-attended and smiles were abundant.

 That would be me, in front of my two florals (acrylic).

The next 4 pix are closeups of a few of the photos which are part of the ARTsisters collage which sits on the easel in the lobby of the exhibition. Some of the pix tell the story of how our green mural was created.
Below, ARTsister Nancy Tabas sits among pieces of collected art.

 Ruth Wolf and Louise Herring work on the mural. (Ellen Abraham hiding behind them!)
 Leslie deBrocky. (photo at right) Founding member of ARTsisters. I knew her for such a brief time before she passed away a few years ago. I am so lucky to have known her! She had a wonderfully refreshing spirit within her; a feisty, exuberance, not often seen. She is so missed.
 Ellen Abraham and Deb K Simon, discussing what needs doing next.
 And below, is a group photo taken at the reception of all the ARTsisters who were at the reception at the time. (Others appeared later)
Thanks for coming, y'all!
Don't forget, there will be another event connected with this exhibition. Printmaker Linda Dubin Garfield will give a lecture on printmaking on April 14th at Jenkins Arboretum, at 1pm.

  1. New info... A percentage of the sales generated from this show will be donated to the fight against human trafficking. For more about it, visit

    1. So sorry - I got my shows mixed up! The anti-trafficking donations will happen at our next ARTsisters show, coming up this June, at Main Line Art Center!

  2. A huge thank-you goes out to Linda Dubin Garfield, for straightening this out. I mixed up the charities and our shows! We are currently exhibiting at Jenkins Arboretum. That show is up for two more weeks. Then in June, we will be showing at the Main Line Art Center. THAT show will be the one to benefit the fight against human trafficking. I apologize for the confusion.


Please add your three cents. (Inflation, you know.)
