Lynn Apfelbaum

West Vitrine

Lynn Apfelbaum has been designing and handcrafting jewelry in her Philadelphia suburban studio for more than 20 years. Her artistic journey began as a hobby but quickly developed into a passion. She integrates her metal work with the finest and most distinctive gemstones, beads, pearls and vintage elements to create one-of-a-kind pieces including facemask chains, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Her joy comes from the creative process which she describes as combining the unexpected and finding complement in the unusual with the goal of designing wearable, timeless jewelry. She draws inspiration from the varied materials with which she works as well as the natural world around her. In metalsmithing, she experiments with new techniques and tools to ensure that her work continues to evolve.

Sarah Baptist

Dining Room

Sarah Baptist is an urban landscape oil painter who enjoys plein air painting. She transforms the urban landscape we see every day and transforms it into art, unveiling the extraordinary in the ordinary. She finds both challenge and joy in being on location and responding and reacting to the scene, light, color and atmosphere. She sees rhythms and designs in the shapes and spaces of the urban landscape, the spaces we live and travel in every day. She believes that her urban landscapes reflect life as well: the paths travelled, choices made, scars and dents we all acquire as we travel our own journeys. Recently, Sarah has started using her plein air work, as well as photos taken while out painting, to create larger urban landscapes and abstract paintings in her home studio. She has won numerous awards, most recently Best of Show at Rivertowns Plein Air in Marietta, PA this Spring. She has also been a featured artist in Plein Air Magazine.

Tchin

East Vitrine

Tchin is a nationally known, multi-award winning artist. He is an accomplished metalsmith, author, flutemaker, educator, folklorist, musician, indigenous storyteller, and clothing designer. Inspired by his heritage, Tchin interprets tradition, culture, and history into contemporary, sophisticated, wearable art. He also states that, having been raised by women, the feminine world has had an extraordinarily strong influence on his work throughout the years. His jewelry is based on dreams and is designed and made by him. He has been featured in Vogue magazine, collaborated with Cartier, and received national awards for his silver work. He attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico and graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Pricilla Bell Lamberty

Salon

Priscilla Bell Lamberty was born in North Philadelphia and raised in the Hunting Park section of the city. As a young child, she marveled at the colorful street art and graffiti that adorned the North Philadelphia streets. Inspired by the art, she began to take up drawing and started recording everything she saw in her neighborhood. She went on to graduate from Community College of Philadelphia and then transferred to Moore College of Art and Design where she received a BFA in 2D Fine Arts. In 2010, she graduated with her MFA in Painting. Throughout the years, Priscilla looked to her family, surroundings, and cultural heritage for guidance and inspiration. She continues to explore the issues that mean the most to her, including parenthood, BIPOC rights, the environment, and finally, what it takes to be a Woman Artist. According to Priscilla, “I seek to share my art with others in hopes of sparking thoughtful conversation with the viewer. It is my hope to help shed light on some of the often-challenging topics that I address in my work.”
