From Joe K:

New Hope Arts Center
Reasonable Rates ~ In the heart of New Hopes' retail district ~ Juried selection process

The New Hope Arts Center is a non-profit, 10,000 sq. ft. facility in the heart of town, currently under renovation for occupancy beginning August 1, 2009. The center will offer artists and craftsmen an opportunity to lease studio space and sell their work directly to the public through a centralized art exhibition center. Information regarding New Hope Arts is available at www.newhopearts.org.

Participants will be offered space based on a juried selection process which will weigh factors including quality, creativity, variety, willingness of artist/craftsman to personally market and/or demonstrate their art during weekend open houses – and the overall value of their participation in establishing an active art community.

Private & shared studios are available: 3 spaces at 450-500 sq. ft. in main building opening on to canal, a separate 1500 sq. ft. building and a 2000 sq. ft. basement. Some opportunities exist for sweat equity to partially offset rent. Some (temporary)opportunities exist for storage/warehouse use.For application & information:Call 215-862-9606 or email richard.hirschfield@gmail.com

New Hope, Pennsylvania was recently named “the TOP SMALL TOWN ARTS DESTINATION IN AMERICA” by American Style Magazine. This honor was even more meaningful by achieving a higher ranking than such nationally recognized small town arts centers as Santa Fe, NM and Carmel, CA.
