Due to COVID our building is not open to the Public for POST in person visits. Please check with the individual artists to set up an appointment for a personal studio visit.

Stay safe, wear your mask, get vaccinated and maybe we can all see eachother for a festive POST in October.

Thank you for you understanding.

 

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.

Two annual events where the building is open the public are Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST) each October, a craft show in November, and the Handmade Brigade in early December. 

One exhibition venue is ARTSPACE 1241. It features our tenants and some guest artists each month and is generally open Fridays + Saturdays 1 – 4 PM, look for the phone number to call for entry.

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