PHILADELPHIA (Nov. 28, 2017)—The perfect combination of art, music, networking and . . . butterflies . . . yes, butterflies, await members and friends of the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce (GNPCC) Monday, Dec. 4 at the Philadelphia Insectarium & Butterfly Pavilion, 8046 Frankford Ave., in Philadelphia’s historic Holmesburg community.
The 2nd Annual Mingle Among the Masterpieces brings together artists and musicians of all ages. Last year’s event held at GNPCC’s offices at 8025 Roosevelt Blvd. was an enormous success. This year’s location at the Butterfly Pavilion holds promise for an even better reception.
To date, 14 artist-participants have agreed to display their cultural talents, including local renowned artist John Fischer, who along with GNPCC President Pam Henshall, were the founders and creators of this unique idea to celebrate Northeast Philadelphia-area artists.
Tickets to the event are $20 per person, which includes hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine. For more information visit www.nephilachamber.com or call 215-332-3400. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org
Perhaps the most unique aspect of this year’s event is holding such a gathering inside an interactive butterfly exhibit. “It was an opportunity to showcase the talents of local artists, and an opportunity to experience the region’s most interesting live butterfly exhibits,” said Ms. Henshall. “We think it’s a great combination, and the folks at Philadelphia Insectarium are very excited as well.”
The talented Mr. Fischer will offer an interactive art demonstration. Settlement Music School (Kardon Northeast) will provide entertainment. The Presenting Sponsor of the evening is Philadelphia Federal Credit Union. Gold Sponsor is Beneficial Bank. Silver Sponsor is The Dining Car. Philadelphia Insectarium & Butterfly Pavilion is Host Sponsor.
