I have paintings year round at the local art association's mall gallery. I've been asked several times about this gallery. So I thought I would take you on a tour – let me introduce you to the Chester County Art Association's Exton Square Studio.
This is a a satellite facility located in the Exton Square Mall. It reaches a lot of people that would not normally venture into an art gallery.
It doesn't take long to become an art lover with all the great art to be found inside.
What makes this gallery fun is it has artists of all levels – famous professionals to up and coming new artists. There are artists who create gorgeous watercolor, oil, pastels, mosaics, pottery, jewelry, blown glass, graphite, pysanky eggs, furniture makers, woodworkers, sculptures, photography, and more.
There is still furniture left from a former store and the wonderful staff puts everything to use for displaying artwork.
There is a huge amount of artist's portfolios filled with photography, paintings and drawings to choose from as well. Behind me in this photo is the very large room where the almost free art classes are held for adults and children. Thousands of children enjoy art classes with professional artists every year here at the gallery. I think it's a great way to expose children to art as they walk through the gallery to the art classes. All housed in the convenience of the local Mall. Hope you enjoyed the tour!
