Almost 2 years ago the Miniature Figure Collectors of America (MFCA) invited the Artist Preservation Group Inc (APG) to join them at their spring show and host the APG bi-annual auction and other traditional APG events. We were honored to be allowed to participate. The APG conducted a tour, a painting workshop, a raffle, and our bi-annual auction. This year we were again invited to join them and conduct these events.
May 4th and 5th at the Radisson Hotel Philadelphia Northeast, 2400 Old Lincoln Highway, Trevose, PA

On May 4 2018 the APG will be sponsoring a day long visit to the City of Philadelphia. The visit will center around two tours. The first tour will be to Independence Hall followed later that day by a tour of the new Museum of the American Revolution. The tours are being scheduled so that not only will you have plenty of free time in the Philadelphia Historic District but we will also be able to get together at Sonny’s Famous Steaks, voted one of the top 10 Philly Cheese Steak Restaurants in Philadelphia for lunch.
We will carpool to downtown Philadelphia and back to the hotel. Volunteer drivers will be needed.
