Juror: Andrea Strang, Gallery 222, Malvern PA

Juror Bio: Andrea Strang, Malvern resident and Penn State Alum, is the owner and curator of Gallery222 Malvern. Her personal journey into the world of art began as a student more than 15 years ago. Andrea’s love and passion for art only grew stronger through the years, collecting many pieces herself. Andrea, wanting to share her love of art, had a clear and simple vision of opening a gallery that would meld together amazing local art in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. She achieved her dream when she opened the doors to Gallery222 in September 2016.  Gallery222 Malvern was quickly labeled a success with several sold-out shows featuring award-winning artists and popular events. Andrea now has a vast private collection and enjoys helping others expand their own. She works with interior decorators on a regular basis and loves exposing the community to the many local and talented artists. Andrea was recently a juror for Chester County Art Association and as well as the Chester County Studio Tour.
