Studio B Fine Art Gallery, 39A East Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, PA, announces a $5,600 grant award from the Boyertown Area Charitable program of Berks County Community Foundation (BCCF) in support of an upcoming exhibit and community project entitled “Wheels.”

“We’re very excited about the art exhibit and the other projects and opportunities for the community’s involvement in our “Wheels” project,” noted Jane Stahl, Studio B Fine Art Gallery’s Director of Community Relations.

The “Wheels” project will include a two-month exhibit of fine art along with coupons for 30 people toward a ride on the Colebrookdale Railroad – The Secret Valley Line, free admission to the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles, a free ride on the Carousel at Pottstown, and a coupon toward a caricature by cartoon artist Alan MacBain. During “Wheels,” Building a Better Boyertown will hold information sessions about its plans for a bike share program. The Boyertown Area Historical Society will offer exhibits featuring the history of transportation in our area. Along with the area’s professional fine artists, Boyertown Area School District art students will be invited to create and exhibit “wheels-related” work at Studio B. Vendors retailing in bicycle equipment will be invited to showcase their products. A bicycle tour is being planned as part of the project.

Studio B, 39A East Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, PA, is pleased to announce the opening of “Let’s Rant,” the studio’s fifth annual show and book release combining literary and visual art.

The exhibit opens March 16, 2018, with a reception from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. and runs through April 15, 2018.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Effenesse Foundation, formerly the Biesecker Foundation, a foundation established by Suzanne K. and the late Fred Biesecker.

Prize awards for artists and writers are offered by the exhibit’s jurors Lesley and Robert Misko.

The exhibit and book will showcase the writers’ and artists’ pet peeves. People, places, things, and ideas that frustrate or annoy are subjects of the prose and poetry and rendered visually by the artists.

Studio B, 39A East Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, PA, is pleased to announce the opening of its 10th annual exhibit dedicated to art inspired by agriculture.

“The Farm” exhibit, celebrating the area’s agrarian roots and the need to protect our environment, is sponsored through a $1,200 donation from Tompkins VIST Bank. This two-month exhibit remains a favorite of Studio B’s artists and patrons.

The exhibit opens January 19, 2018, with a reception from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. and runs through March 11, 2018.
