2012 House Tour!

Hey Printeresting! Thanks for visiting our little shop last month; we were happy to show you around. We got things 'cleaned up' for our guest, and took some photos of our own. The shop will be open again for East-of-Broad P.O.S.T, as Katie opens her studio on the third floor to the art-loving public.

When you enter, you'll see that you're still very much in a home, just a home for printmaking... The Charles Brand and Conrad Presses greet you right away!
The view from the kitchen (yes! We have one!) looking back to the front of the house.
A little felt mermaid by Caroline Garcia Ziegler watches over the Whelan Press.
Our little wash-up and paper-soaking stations. Lots of soaps.
We made our floating ink stations out of a reclaimed skylight diffuser from an old farm! (Thanks Re-Store!)
The big Whelan. This hybrid press has a roller that moves over the bed, instead of the other way around.
Our etching presses, Charlie and Connie, get the most action around here.

Meet our members, and take a print home perhaps!

The Trenton Avenue Arts Festival is a neighbor-led arts festival celebrating the visual, culinary, and musical artists in the East Kensington section of Philadelphia (and beyond).  Held in conjunction with the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby, our festival is unique in that it features a kinetic parade of handmade sculptures that roll, spin, or hop through our neighborhood, starting and ending at the fest.  Local restaurants and food trucks come out to serve our finest foods, and local brewery, Philadelphia Brewing Company, is there to serve those of legal age their current brews.  Fresh and local live music anchors the festival, and hundred of artists, including us, will be there to offer their craft to you.  It's a ONE-OF-A-KIND event!

James Oliver Gallery 723 Chestnut Street, 4th Floor (walkup) February 11th- March 24thJOG presents its first show of the new season, exhibiting works from artists Madeline Adams and Emily Chatton.
