Main Line Art Center looks to the New Year as they announce the new list of Professional Artist Members for 2014.  Selected by jurors Sharon Ewing, Director of Gross McCleaf Gallery (Philadelphia), and Shawn Murray, Owner of Twenty-Two Gallery (Philadelphia), the artists include painters, photographers, sculptors, and mixed media artists from the Greater Philadelphia area.

The Professional Artist Member Program was developed three years ago to help support and promote the artistic careers of a select group of Main Line Art Center Members.  Professional Artist Members are eligible for group or solo shows as part of the Center’s Exhibitions in the Community Series, as well as the Center’s annual Professional Artist Members Exhibition.  Through the 2-year membership term, the artists are promoted through the Art Center’s Facebook page and website as well as given access to professional development training, critique seminars, and discounted rates with partners Inliquid and Heavy Bubble.  The Professional Artist Member program seeks to increase the artists’ exposure to Main Line collectors, curators, and designers while developing a supportive community of professional artists from around the Philadelphia region.

The 2014 Professional Artist Members Exhibition will be presented January 3 to 24 in the Art Center’s award-winning galleries, and will feature the work of a selection of Professional Artist Members.  The Art Center will host a free public reception with wine courtesy of Barefoot Wine

& Bubbly, on Friday, January 10 from 6 to 8 pm where the community can meet the artists and purchase unique works of art. The gallery at Main Line Art Center is free and open to the public Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm, and Friday through Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.

The following artists have been selected for the 2014 Professional Artist Member Program.  New artists in the group as well as the artists selected for the 2014 Professional Artist Members Exhibition are indicated.  List incomplete.
