Over the last few weeks, we’ve been busy at the Mt. Airy Art Garage. Really busy. But, to us, the chaos of productivity means three things: Community, Connections, and Art. Between our grand opening, hosting POST (Philadelphia Open Studio Tours), and prepping for our first exhibit, “Recapturing Memories” by Meei Ling Ng, we haven’t had much time to anticipate the holiday rush.
Plus, we’ve been sketching with plenty of students (from Chestnut Hill Academy/Springside School, Green Tree School, First United Methodist Church of Germantown, to name just a few) as they tour Ng’s 3-D installation with wide-eyes and open minds. To say the least, we’ve had our hands happily full!
As the holidays approach, though, we’re happy to announce our Holiday Art Market Extravaganza. Surely, over the next few weeks, you’ll be searching for that unique, personalized gift created by local artists to give to that special someone – and what better place to find it than at the Mt. Airy Art Garage. During the first three Saturdays and Sundays in December, from 10am to 5pm, MAAG will open its doors and offer the community a diverse selection of fine arts and handcrafts created by artists from Germantown, Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill.
So, stop by 11 West Mt. Airy Avenue to browse the unique display of original artwork and enjoy the holiday festivities. After all, supporting local artists (in the community you already love) surely beats going to the mall.
