The purpose of Orchard Artworks is to provide a high quality showcase, a marketplace, and a supportive & cooperative fellowship for artists and craftspeople primarily in Bryn Athyn and the tri-county area; to encourage artistic creativity and excellence in craftsmanship; to provide community arts education, and to promote fine art and craft art as a viable means of livelihood.

 

 

Orchard Artworks opened in June of 2001 with the purpose of providing "supportive cooperative fellowship for artists and craftspeople." "Cooperative" is the key word here: We are doing something relatively rare in the art/craft gallery world, and that is to allow the artist to have more involvement in running the gallery as a group, thereby preserving more of the earnings of the artist for the artist. We firmly believe in the possibility of this concept being a success at Orchard Artworks for many years to come.

 

 Thanks for checking out our web site, and we look forward to seeing you at Orchard Artworks as we celebrate the birth of a wonderful new art space!
