In 1937, an enthusiastic group of artists and students established a new center for the arts on the Main Line.  In 1948, the group moved to “The White House”, a Victorian mansion on the border of Haverford and Lower Merion Townships.  This house is Main Line Art Center’s home today, and is more beautiful than ever after extensive renovations and additions in 2013.   The Art Center is bursting with energy as a place for art classes for the community, outreach programs (both at the Art Center and offsite) for people with special needs and the elderly, and exhibitions and community and social events.  2014 is a special year for the Art Center- it is the 50th anniversary of the Art Center’s outreach programs and the 10th anniversary of the Art Center’s widely acclaimed Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition, as well as the first year back in the renovated building.  With a goal of providing Art for Everyone, the Art Center is a welcoming and vibrant community and a cultural gem on the Main Line.  To learn more about the Art Center, please visit

I have been privileged to serve on the Art Center’s Board since 2012 and currently serve as Board President.  High Swartz has been very supportive of my time commitment to the Art Center and has been a financial supporter as well.

During my time at High Swartz, I have also served on the Board and as Board President for my local Free Library, and for my local Civic Association.   For a number of years I was on the Board of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce and its predecessor Chambers, and served as volunteer General Counsel to the Chamber.
