Meet The Tiberino Family:  A Continuing Legacy of Art 

You are invited to join us for an exciting event in celebration of Women’s History.  The late Ellen Powell Tiberino was an African American artist who was figurative and expressionist in her pastels, oils, pencil drawings and sculptures. Her works were infused with the experiences and history of Black people, women in particular, whom she most often painted in dark and haunting hues; and a prolific artist, working against time as she battled cancer for the last 18 years of her life.  Daughter, Ellen Tiberino is a mosaic artist born and raised in West Philadelphia. She works with stained glass in a method of mosaic that is equated to painting with glass. Ellen comes from Philly’s First Family of Art, the renown Tiberino Family.  Known as The Wyeths of Philadelphia the Tiberino family legacy lasts over 50 years, but Ellen’s work stands on its own.

The event will include an exhibit, discussion, purchase of art for sale and food and beverages. | 6306 Germantown Avenue    RSVP:
