Studio B Fine Art Gallery, Boyertown’s community art center, will be celebrating the start of its 10th year of operation in October 2017. We’re thrilled and a bit surprised actually that we have come this far! We’re eager to celebrate and invite everyone to celebrate with us.
We are also making efforts to line up partners willing to support the future efforts of Studio B as we continue to bring arts and culture to Boyertown and surrounding areas. Since we generally stage a new exhibit each month, we welcome you to pick your favorite month to sponsor!
We know that there are many requests for the community’s charitable dollars, and we don’t ask lightly. However, far too often the arts are seen as “frills”; yet, research statistics on economic vitality in a community prove time and time again that the community’s arts and culture venues lead the way in attracting visitors, generating income, and adding to the quality of life in a community.
And so, please consider supporting Studio B, Boyertown’s “little gallery that does” serve thousands of children and adults in the community, has served over 600 artists throughout our history, and adds a space for beauty, fun, learning, and friendship! We’re a busy group of volunteers; there’s always something going on at 39A E Phila Ave.
Follow Studio B on Facebook, visit our website www.studiobbb.org, or sign up to receive our monthly e-blast.
Our activities include:
*Monthly exhibits—open, themed, juried exhibits of artists in our area; solo shows; or invitationals. We’ve exhibited the works of over 600 visual artists and writers since 2008
*Art classes, workshops and summer camps for children and adults. Hundreds of children have benefited from the expertise of our professional artists. Guitar lessons and yoga are also offered.
*Presentations on local history by our own gallery adjunct, the renowned historian Bob Wood
*Writing classes, Poetry readings, Meet the Authors, and Storytelling events showcase the art of wordworking.
*Art Activities during community events add fun and a chance to participate and take home a piece of art that you made!
