Philadelphia Open Studio Tours in Historic Germantown

September 27, 2011

Calling all art-lovers!  Along with the Revolutionary Germantown Festival this weekend, Historic Germantown is also hosting visual artists as part of the Philadelphia Open Studio Tour on Saturday & Sunday, October 1 & 2 from 12pm-6pm.

Painter, John Hannafin, will exhibit his splendid paintings celebrating the beauty of nature through strong imagery and energetic brush strokes at The Johnson House, (6306 Germantown Avenue).  Hannafin, an artist whose work has been exhibited at leading galleries across the United States, is also known for his wonderful architectural painting of historic homes.  After your visit here, head directly across the street to the The Concord School & Upper Burying Ground (6309 Germantown Avenue for a short break from your art-crawling to visit this perfectly preserved school house which dates back to 1775. 

After that, don’t miss the art of Donald Martiny and Celia Johnson also exhibiting as part of the Open Studio Tour nearby, at 20 East Herman Street on the 2nd floor in Studio 5.  (Located a half block east of Germantown Avenue, a former mill now home to independent woodworking businesses and several art studios.)

And there are loads of other local artists exhibiting their work in Germantown this weekend too,  click here to find a full list of exhibiting artists.

Historic Germantown is proud to partner with the Center for Emerging Artists in their Open Studio Tour, this year.  All tours are FREE
