The West Reading Community Revitalization Foundation proudly presents an annual Art on the Avenue. The community's premier family festival features fine arts and crafts made by local juried artists. Each year thousands of people are drawn to Penn Avenue, West Reading as the event continues to grow. Located in the Greater Reading hub for arts, culture, shopping, and dining, this event appeals to both novice buyers and experienced art patrons. Additionally the venue features live music, street performers, local businesses, and specialty foods.
There’s a big new draw for 2016 Art on the Avenue!
Artists from throughout the region will be drawn to West Reading to capture the beauty, vitality and spirit of the bustling borough in art created en plein air–on the spot–over a two-day period starting Friday, June 17, rain or shine.
The artists and their work will be spotlighted during the event, and showcased at a fun-packed, fund-raising After Party on Saturday evening. Over $1000 in prizes will be awarded.
Call to Artists–Register ASAP!
Competition limited to the first 40 artists to register.
