Meet. Mingle. Network: Generation Stiletto

Today’s featured organization is Generation Stilleto. Career Wardrobe Education and Outreach Manager Caitlin Day answers a few of our questions about what you can expect from Young Professionals Preview Night:

Can you tell us a bit about your organization?

Generation Stiletto is the young professionals group that supports Career Wardrobe, a non-profit that provides professional clothing and job readiness training to women entering the workforce. Generation Stiletto organizes and hosts quarterly events that engage members in volunteer service, events, and professional development opportunities.

What benefits does your organization offer a young professional?

We provide young professionals access to a meaningful and highly impactful volunteer experience with a leading non-profit in the Philadelphia area. We also host professional development events for members that may otherwise be cost prohibitive. We connect professionals on their way up with women who are just starting and allow our members to support each other and our clients in a very unique symbiotic relationship.

What do you think young professionals will get out of the preview night?

The preview night creates a fun, creative atmosphere where young professionals can relax and meet new people, engage with area organizations, and get a sneak peak at the art! Becoming engaged with Philadelphia organizations and artists will help young professionals to feel more connected to their awesome city.

Do you think it’s important for young professionals to be involved in the local cultural scene?

A city’s culture is its lifeblood. Getting involved with the local cultural scene connects you to your city in a way that nothing else does. It shows you what the city is feeling, how it is viewing itself and the rest of the world, and what it wants. Philly has great artists of all kinds and it is about time we start supporting each other.

"The forms from nature that I have drawn from for these sculptures are taken from insect life-segmented, hard shelled bodies, robotic and armor coated, yet able to instantly take flight. The large scale of these otherwise small creatures comes from reality and fantasy of the prehistoric world."

Acrylic and watercolor grids and overlapping lines, gestured brush strokes and bold color are the first impressions when seeing the new work by Patricia Ingersoll. Ingersoll continues her studies of the merging of organic and geometric elements in nature and how they compare and contrast with the human condition. Her explorations of subjects found in nature, such as water, dense woods, vines, plants introduces challenges in the process of deconstructing the pictorial plane, or breaking it apart, in order to reconstruct it as individual, but equal parts. Through this process of mapping and diagramming with line, she is exploring and recording where these elements intersect pictorially.

What elevates his work from mere craftsmanship is his visionary outlook. Rearranging objects and incorporating an iconography of myths, fairy tales, and personal idiosyncrasies, Warren Muller exudes an envious agility.  Motion, change and improvisation are implied like a glimpse of chaos captured and frozen for a split-second.
