A Family Display in Philadelphia, PA
The hallways of the fifth floor of City Hall were filled with artwork from over 167 employees of Philadelphia! It was a wonderful collection of artwork from various city department employees and their family members.
Tu Huynh, Art in City Hall Director, asked Amie Potsic, Director of Career Development for the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, to join us at the reception. She spoke to all the artists on how she can help them through various city programs to further pursue their art careers.
This year’s Best of Show was an intricate, large oil painting entitled “La Familia” by Orlando Quevedo, which incorporated his entire family into a replica and combination of several Old Masters paintings. It was certainly a favorite of the attendees at the awards reception.
