Community Connections and Art
Our vision is to create a cooperative in Northwest Philadelphia where emerging and professional artists can create and sell their work in a community of like-minded colleagues, friends, and neighbors. We expect to achieve this through the creation of a weekend arts and crafts market as well as an indoor space where one can take a workshop, watch art being created, learn about crafts, and purchase art and craft objects. We are currently incorporating as a 501(c3), based in Northwest Philadelphia embracing artists in Germantown, Mt. Airy, Chestnut Hill, and surrounding communities.
Mt. Airy Art Garage Cooperative will provide opportunities for artists in Northwest Philadelphia to create, exhibit, and distribute their fine arts and handcrafts; to educate and teach workshops to both adults and youth; to create an ongoing Art Market that highlights unique fine arts and handcrafts; all while recognizing and appreciating the diversity of this unique section of Philadelphia.
Upcoming Plans for 2010
- Launching a membership drive—we welcome you to join! Whether you are an artist or a supporter of the visual arts, the Mt. Airy Art Garage can be the place for you. Find out more at our website www.mtairyartgarage.org and friend us on Facebook.
- Creating our next Art Market, hopefully for April. Stay tuned for more information.
- Silent Auction, Sat., May. 15. This will be a unique evening of music and art held at the former PA Governor’s Mansion in Germantown, listed on the National Register as a historic site. You will have an opportunity to bid on unique fine art and handcrafts donated by our members while enjoying music and food donated by area businesses and musicians. This should be an amazing night. You’ll never even feel like it’s a fundraiser.
Look for us at Mt. Airy Day, May 1, 2010!
The Mt. Airy Art Garage will be reaching out to our neighbors in a big kind of way! We’ll have at least 4 tables “representing!” You’ll find unique fine art and handcrafts, get a calendar of events, and have the opportunity to become a member. Stop by, meet our artists, learn more about our vision and upcoming events!
