Pop artist Jeff Schaller was the curator of an unusual show that brings together the work of 24 artists in four different venues in West Chester. Enjoy a night out on the town and see a range of art work during the borough’s first gallery walk for the summer. All four locations will be celebrating with free wine and cheese receptions from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday.
Schaller worked with the Chester County Art Association and fellow artists to come up with the concept of artists creating art according to specific sizes. The idea also included a private opening that gave participating artists a chance to support their colleagues and acquire new work.
“I wanted artists to be able to trade work and meet other artists,” Schaller said, “I thought it would be a good opportunity for them to meet gallery directors too. The final step was the galleries presenting affordable art to the community. It’s a win win for everyone.”
The galleries displaying the works include the , the , and . Patrons can explore art in several sizes: 6 inch by 6 inch, 12 inch by 12 inch, 24 inch by 24 inch and 36 inch by 36 inch.
The galleries are within an easy walking distance. To learn more about this event and the annual Gallery Walk visit their Web site.
