On Saturday, May 11th, at 2pm, Philadelphia Stories Junior will be holding a release party for its Spring 2013 issue at the Musehouse, in Chestnut Hill, PA.
The release of the spring issue is very exciting for Appel Farm… Artwork created at Appel Farm by these 7 campers will be published in the issue: Victoria Appel, Katie Gaynor, Rebekah Kline, Grant Pavol, Kathryn Prouse, Vanessa Roser, and Claire Walter. The painting featured on this blog is by Vanessa Roser, who has majored in Painting and Drawing for the past two summers at Appel Farm, and is returning for First Session this summer.
Everyone is welcome to come to the release party! There will be refreshments and entertainment, and it’s FREE.
