"Art Local" Art Show Presented By ArtsConnect™

ArtLocal headder -web
ArtsConnect brings the community together with a two-day celebration of the arts. The Centennial Barn, located at 110 Compton Road, will hold a gallery of artwork from residents of the community and surrounding neighborhoods. Artwork from long-time Springfield Township resident, nationally known artist, Charley Harper will also be on display - making this event even more unique and exciting.

The art show will kick off on Friday, November 10th with an evening artist reception. A wine tasting, light appetizers, live music, silent auction, raffle and a "People's Choice" award will fill the evening and give neighbors a chance to mingle and enjoy the art. There will be live art demonstrations and information available on classes for you to further your creative side. ArtsConnect will provide an update on plans for the future and we will celebrate the artists who have their work on display. Many of the artworks will be available for sale.

The gallery will reopen on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  for art lovers to take a closer look and enjoy the art at their leisure.
