Studio B Fine Art Gallery, 39A East Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, PA, announces the opening of “VIVID,” the gallery’s annual holiday exhibit beginning November 10, 2023, with a festive holiday Awards Reception on Friday, December 1st, 2023, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm during Boyertown’s annual Holiday Open House Tour. The exhibit continues through January 21, 2024. A virtual tour will be available following the opening on December 1, 2023.
Juror for the exhibit is Shannon S. Fugate, Executive Director at The Baum School of Art, Allentown, PA. With a BFA from Kutztown University, Shannon brings over two decades of dedicated service to community visual arts.
Each year since the gallery opened in 2008, Gallery Director Susan Biebuyck urges local artists to showcase their very best art work during this celebratory—and gifting—season. “During the dark, longest days of winter, presenting a gift of art provides bright and shining moments for the giver, the recipient, and the artist.”
In addition, as a special feature this season, Biebuyck has challenged artists to create work for a unique fundraiser for the studio: One of the studio’s walls will showcase 8” x 8” squares of art in any medium and priced at $40—perfect for holiday or hostess gifts. Patrons can take the work with them after purchase—right off the wall, no waiting!
Studio B, located in the heart of historic Boyertown, is the home of the Arts and Activities Alliance, a committee of Building a Better Boyertown, a nonprofit Main Street program dedicated to revitalizing small towns.
Studio B celebrates lifelong learning, creativity and personal involvement in the visual and communication arts and seeks to be a dynamic part of Boyertown community, a “go to” destination for learning, fun and friendship. The studio seeks to showcase the work of fine artists in themed exhibits—some juried, some open to all—and welcomes art in diverse media. In addition to art exhibits, workshops, and classes, Studio B also hosts activities and informal gatherings on assorted topics for small groups or meetings, gallery talks, and “Getting to Know You” opportunities.
Visitors are always welcome to view the changing exhibits; take lessons in the visual, literary, and communication arts offered by highly-trained local artists and teachers; and schedule small events or parties in its elegant facility. The studio proudly collaborates with the many unique businesses in the Boyertown community.
