September Dinner Meeting

Attention PSC Members!

Our September dinner meeting has been scheduled for Friday September 15th, 2017. We would love to hear what you’ve been up to this summer. To reserve your seat, RSVP to Michelle in the PSC office by 12 Noon September 13th.


  • 5:30- Social Period Begins
  • 6:15- Speaker: Chris Kotsakis
  • 7:15- Dinner


Chris Kotsakis is a professional artist who created  Artistacon, a weekend long exposition that brings older, more established visual artists working in different fields together with younger artists who are just beginning their careers.

The first Artistacon was held last year in Burlington NJ, and was highly successful.

Artistacon is different from other cons in that is oriented towards  established professional visual artists and those beginning their careers, not just fans of art. The Philadelphia Sketch Club was represented at the last Artistacon. Chris will speak about Artistacon 2018, along with a companion symposium “Graphically Speaking”, which will take place at the Radisson Hotel in Trevose PA on October  26th 2017. Five different workshops will be held during the day, and lunch is included. Students and educators get a special discount! To learn more about this event, see the flyer and visit graphicallyspeaking.org.
