Philly Art Social members gather to discuss techniques, share critiques, and offer gallery/exhibiting advice -remotely and in-person for First Fridays. And we support each other during gallery showings/openings. To stay social, We connect over happy hours, for tea and/or cocktails, and light dinners to engage in getting to know each other and share our details of projects. We encourage all the members of this group to have creative collaborations with our members, connect, enjoy and grow our trade with each other, while feeling confident to build relationships with groups who are not artist yet are interested in the artistic world.

Thank you for joining!

Uncle Boonmie Who Recalls His Past Lives (2010)
Suffering from acute kidney failure, Uncle Boonmee, who lives in a house on a farm with his sister-in-law Jen and his nephew Tong has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside. Surprisingly Huay, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and his long lost son returns home in a non-human form. Contemplating the reasons for his illness, he treks through the jungle with his family to a mysterious hilltop cave - the birthplace of his first life.

This award winning & internationally acclaimed film rates a terrific 89 on Rotten Tomatoes!

I will be hosting our Italian Market Festival event on this same day, and not sure I will be able to attend both... so for now this is an Un-Hosted event. If someone wants to step up to Host, please let me know.

Please arrive before 7pm and your tickets will be on a Guest List.

Wednesday Happy Hour at TIME at 1315 Sansom Street

Needs a location

Who Wouldn't Enjoy a Drink with Friends After Work on a Wednesday?
...or just come to eat & socialize, that's OK too!

Join us on Wednesday at one of our favorite spots, TIME at 1315 Sansom Street. Look for us in the Whiskey Bar room on the first floor. TIME has both discounted drinks & bar food during Happy Hour, great for snacking or turning into dinner!

Although we are a large group & we meet in the Whiskey Bar room, if you feel the need to better socially distance, members are welcome to move into the much larger room on the first floor which is also where the live music is.

Even though we initially gather in the Whiskey Bar room, later in the evening their will be live music in the main first floor dining room, and its totally OK to wander into that room to enjoy the music, which is free.

see you there,
