Christina Little, a senior Pre-Art Therapy student, exhibited her painting, Ocean Blues, during the Mingle Among the Masterpieces Art Reception on December 5.
Hosted by the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, the Mingle Among the Masterpieces event celebrates art, music, and culture in Northeast Philadelphia. According to the event’s page, the night featured “45+ art pieces we’ve received from the young to seniors, from the novice to the professional.”
Little decided to enter her piece after being made aware of the event by Pam Flynn, Professor of Art and Coordinator of Fine Arts.
“At the reception, it was nice to see other artists in one room discussing their work,” Little said. “As they read my statement, it was pleasing to see the audience understand my piece, and see it from my point of view. They were able to understand the meaning behind my work, and look at it as a powerful and relatable statement. In the Holy Family community, I felt proud to be given the opportunity to represent Holy Family University, and to bring an awareness to our art program. This event is a great way for artist’s at HFU to be recognized for their talent and hard work.”
