ARTsisters was founded in December 2005, by Linda Dubin Garfield who realized that her long-time friend and fellow artist Leslie DeBrocky* functioned as more than a friend when it came to discussing and helping with her art. She was really an ARTsister, one who understood the process and could really understand the highs and lows involved with the challenges of a professional artist. Together they opened membership to other women and, through word of mouth, now have 26 members and an email list of more than 75 interested women artists. Sharing resources and offering support to each other, the members now have a schedule of shows, both individual and group, for the next few years, including shows in Chestnut Hill, Old City, Manayunk, Wayne, Wynnewood, the Wilmington Arts Commission in Delaware, the Widener University Art Gallery, Jenkins Arboretum, Main Line Art Center, Martin’s Run and the City of Philadelphia Board of Ethics.
Some of the non-profits we have collaborated with include: Adopt A Pig, Endow-A-Home, Philadelphia FIGHT, Juvenile Diabetes, The Cancer Support Community (formerly The Wellness Community of Philadelphia), The Food Trust, Child Advocates, Laurel House Circle of Friends and Dawn’s Place.
