LCCA is pleased to offer an exciting program on “Art Collecting 101: Advice for the Emerging Collector,”featuring local art rock stars Philippa P.B. Hughes, founder and president of the Pink Line Project; Veronica Jackson, co-founder and senior exhibit designer for Jackson Brady Design Group; and Victoria Reis, executive director of Transformer, Logan Circle’s exclusive not-for-profit gallery devoted to supporting emerging artists and their work."
