A Center City law firm gives a boost to local emerging artists.
Griesing Law, LLC, recently held its latest "Conversations and Cocktails: The Artists Series," a semi-annual gathering feting a local artist. This year, the Center City firm highlighted Val Rossman by displaying her works on the firm's walls.
Conceived by firm founder and managing member Fran Griesing, the series, now in its fourth year, celebrates emerging artists with hopes of attracting a benefactor to his or her works.
“We could identify with the artists as it was a tough economy at the time" when the series started in 2010, "and still is," according to statement issued by Griesing. "Although we had all come from large law firms, as a unit, we were just getting started and there was so much to get us on our feet, and decorating our offices was the last thing we could afford.
"We liked introducing these gifted people to our clients and the public.”
Rossman's works also have been shown at the "Art of the State" exhibit of the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg
