Welcome to the Springfield Township High School Art Blog. The purpose of this forum is to inspire discourse surrounding your artistic experiences while building writing skills, exercising your art vocabulary, and refining descriptive language relating to art. In your writing, you may choose to discuss museum and gallery exhibitions, publications, articles, professional works, student works, or responses to each other’s ideas and investigations. Additionally, participants may want to pose questions or react to artistic predicaments, sharing the trials, frustrations, solutions, or the general excitement we feel when we make or look at art.

Organized Artists in Philadelphia

Philadelphia has groups of fine artists who manage "cooperative" galleries.  The artists usually share in the duties including promotion and advertising, serving as host during gallery operating hours, hanging shows, sales, and general maintenance.  In return they get exhibition space for their work.  In an effort to draw attention to these artists and galleries the groups have consolidated their efforts through a collective called the CITYWIDE project.  Working in cooperation, selected galleries exchange work with each other providing exposure to a broader audience.  See www.citywidephilly.com for more updates and information.
