Philly Stewards at the 5th Annual Philly Podfest

August 4, 201753 min
Happy First Friday art people! In this episode of KTG Talks the Philly Stewards sit down with me for a live recording at Philly Podfest no. 5. Kitchen Table Gallery was very pleased to be one of the venues for this year's Philly Podfest. We hosted a bunch of great shows you can find out more about on our Instagram.  The Philly Stewards (www.phillystewards.art) is an educational organization at the beginning of their journey to promote and foster support for the Philly art scene and the artists creating work in our great city. Founding members Alex Conner (alex-conner.com) and Leigh Werrell (virginialeighwerrell.weebly.com) sit down with me to discuss their vision for the Philly Stewards and their thoughts on the art scene in our rapidly growing city. It's no secret that Philadelphia is going through an incredible cultural and economic shift, and these forces impact all areas of life in Philly. My guests discuss how their organization fits into the Philadelphia art scene, art collecting tips for the rest of us, and how their passion for art in Philly motivated them to create Philly Stewards.  A quick thank you to David Steele of http://steeleempire.com for recording and editing this episode. Also we'd like to thank all of the volunteers and Teagan Karuna (http://www.teagank.com/about/) for keeping the Podcast Festival going and helping us with all of the shows at Kitchen Table Gallery this year.  Our guests writing about art:  Leigh interview: https://www.phillystewards.art/legacy-blog/2017/7/15/interview-series-sarah-mceneaney  Alex essay: https://www.velvetglovephiladelphia.com/january-7th-2022  Philly Stewards around the web:  FB: https://www.facebook.com/phillystewards/ Music: Intro: Polygamie by Gabriel Vigliensoni
