They have been meeting at the Fox Chase Library on Rhawn Street for over twenty years. After three years we decided to visit them once again. The Fox Chase Art Group is a collection artists who meet each Monday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. These artists range in experience from new, emerging to seasoned artist. They come together for the purpose of working on art projects and meeting fellow artists from the area and beyond. Artist Robert Mellin encourages others to come out to the Arts Group. “New members are always welcome without restrictions as to age, experience or proficiency. We want to encourage artists to grow in their craft.” According to Mellin there is no cost to join the group or to stop in for a visit. Participants can work in any media but must bring their own supplies.
The Fox Chase Art Group participates in exhibitions in the Delaware Valley. Artist Mary Ellen McGovern will be part of a large exhibition at Love Park in Center City on October 13th. The Art Group provides feedback if requested and is focused on being an inspiration to fellow artists.
Want to get your art on? Load up your supplies and head over to The Fox Chase Library and meet The Art Group every Monday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. If you desire more information on their focus or the group contact Robert Mellin at 215-731-0101.
