The Art Factory of White Mills Celebrates its 2nd Anniversary!
Two years ago, The Art Factory of White Mills opened its doors as a small town art gallery featuring 22 artists. Today, the beautifully renovated 10,000 square foot building is home to over 65 incredibly talented, local artists, hosting over 1,000 unique, one-of-a-kind pieces!
The Art Factory continues to strive to be a “community art center”, a place “where talent and appreciation meet”. The gallery offers free events throughout the year…
In their short tenure, they have hosted three “High School Emerging Artists Showcases”. (This upcoming year, the event will tentatively be held on Saturday, 01/19/19.) The gallery artists judge the work submitted by students attending: Honesdale, Wallenpaupack and Western Wayne High Schools. First, second and third place winners receive gift certificates to purchase additional art supplies with one piece of their artwork being professionally framed and the bragging rights of having their work displayed inside the gallery for up to 6 months!
The Art Factory continues to offer “meet & greets”. This affords art enthusiasts the opportunity to meet the featured artist, as well as to hear their story. When you listen to these stories, you begin to feel their pain and triumphs! It’s always fascinating to learn about the motivation that sparks the artists creativity!
The art gallery offers many “free demos” throughout the year. It’s a great way to sample a new art form. Classes are offered throughout the year in a variety of mediums. Take a workshop or sign up for a progressive class. Learn a new skill while having fun! Come alone or bring a group of friends for a private event. The artists are extremely flexible. They will work with you to make your experience as memorable as they can!
On Saturday, September 1, 2019, in celebration of The Art Factory of White Mills 2nd Anniversary, select artists will be offering discounts on the purchase of their art. Many artists will also be on hand offering “free demos”. Take the opportunity to support your local artists and learn how they create their art! Stop, shop and save! Art is a gift from the heart; personal and individualized! Gift certificates and layaway are always available.
