Three curators in Chester County are breaking barriers in a field historically dominated by men and making art more accessible in the process, writes Melissa Jacobs for Main Line Today.
Andrea Strang, Amie Potsic, and Lauren Anrig Addis are among the most influential exhibitors in the region. The three women are sought for their impeccable expertise and connections. As such, they are helping reframe the local art scene and opening doors for groups of artists who have been marginalized for generations, including women and people of color.
Berwyn’s Potsic is the Main Line Art Center’s former executive director. An acclaimed photographer and installation artist herself, she launched the Amie Potsic Art Advisory last year. She is often drawn to artists who are trying to communicate conceptual ideas.
Strang took classes at Wayne Art Center before opening Gallery 222 in Malvern three years ago. It has now become one of the region’s hottest art spaces, exhibiting works from more than 50 artists.
Addis founded LAA Art Collective in Wayne in 2016. She also curates art programs in several other locations, including the Freeman’s Main Line auction house and Wayne’s Main Line Pop Up.
