Welcome to the future of art in Lycoming County! 2018 marks the inaugural year of Arthaus Projects, a new, non-profit artspace developed by the founder of Converge Gallery. Inspired by the Staatliches Bauhaus (commonly known as Bauhaus), a German art school that famously combined crafts and fine arts teaching with an emphasis on design, Arthaus Projects strives to make fine, contemporary art accessible to the local community. More than that, Arthaus Projects seeks to provide community education through exhibitions, colloquia and collaborative projects. Arthaus Projects takes a project-based approach to our exhibitions combining interactive exhibits (such as artist talks and live demonstrations) with traditional gallery installations.
So why Arthaus Projects? Because a gallery doesn’t define what we are going to do for the Williamsport arts scene. As a community resource, Arthaus Projects will provide greater career opportunities in the arts for students, emerging artists and established artists that promote innovative, contemporary ideas. In order to do this, we do need your help, because Arthaus Projects is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Arthaus Projects will continue the legacy of Converge Gallery but push us into a brand new direction. We are more than just hanging pretty pictures on the wall. We’re the next stage in the evolution of the Lycoming County arts scene, and we can’t wait to show you what we are planning.
