West Chester Art Display During Tomorrow's Gallery Walk

Three West Chester art galleries and the Chester County Art Association present an art exhibit of epic proportions – “Size Matters.”

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.
