historic 1241 Carpenter Street
our building

Over fifty artists and craftspeople working in an awesome 19th Century factory building. 

We're in the Hawthorne neighborhood of Philadelphia. We're often lumped in with Bella Vista to the east and South Philadelphia which officially begins south of Washington Avenue. Our building is always buzzing with our many creative businesses and art studios.

One exhibition venues is  ARTSPACE 1241. It features our tenants and some guest artists each month.

Our close proximity to the Italian Market is terrific for us and our visitors. It's an authentic taste of Philadelphia! 

Sex Symbol is an exhibition representing symbols of sex from a woman's perspective, with ‘sex’ having a broad interpretation, including: femininity, sexuality, intimacy, and the physical act itself. The artists, who are all from the Philadelphia area, are: Nancy Hellebrand in collaboration with Shira Yudkoff, Judy Gelles, Ekaterina Popova and Phyllis Gorsen.
