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 fine craft 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. Come visit the gallery and see all the wonderful items we have to offer!
