We’ll meet at the Cresson Lane entrance to the park, which is at the intersection of Cresson Lane and Columbia Blvd in Swarthmore (there is a gazebo as a landmark). Feel free to invite other artists who may be interested in joining the event in the park and share this event with any painting groups you’re a member.

upcoming shows during the pandemic restrictions

Happy Wednesday fellow friends of the arts! We are working on schedules for upcoming shows including the group show. We’ve been in contact with Borough Hall and there is still no word on when the building will be opening to the public. They are following the advice of the Borough Council and Borough Council is following the advice of Gov. Wolf. As it stands now, we are in a wait and see. We are also working on setting up virtual shows of local artists during this phase of the pandemic restrictions. Stay safe. Stay creative. Stay tuned.
