Open Reception: Sunday, October 6, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (Free and open to the public).
This year’s juror is Michael Kowbuz and Tina Rocha of Cerulean Art Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. Michael Kowbuz holds a Master of Art in Community College Teaching. In addition to his BFA and MFA degrees, he is keenly aware of the challenges artists face in making their art while often juggling other professions. He is an exhibiting artist himself as well as the Director of Continuing Education Programs and an adjunct drawing/painting faculty member at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. This gives valuable insight as to how Cerulean Arts can best serve those they represent.
Tina Rocha tends to the general management of Cerulean Arts and directs its course. Tina earned simultaneous degrees in both Architecture and History of Art from the University of California, Berkeley. Throughout Cerulean Arts’ history, she has depended on her aptitude for establishing harmonious spatial relationships, from the arrangement of artwork on the wall to creating enticing shelf displays. This lends to Cerulean Arts’ sense of place, one of comfort and familiarity.
