With our gallery exhibition program going dark this season due to the pandemic, we've created a new virtual program of artist interview/receptions that you can enjoy from the safety of your home. Join Executive Director Craig Stover, as he sits down with some truly amazing artists from the Philadelphia area as he talks to them about their background, their life and their work. Below is a list of the Fall schedule of artists followed by each artist's website. Pictured above is artwork from our second artist of the season, Patricia Ingersoll (Sept. 17).
