The Hamburg Area Arts Alliance was created to (a) support and showcase local artists and crafters and (b) stimulate awareness of the arts in our community. The Alliance was formed as a sub-committee of Our Town Foundation – Hamburg’s Community Revitalization Corporation. There are currently more than 5 dozen artist members; over 40 of them have their work on display and for sale in the Art & Craft Gallery of Hamburg on State Street.
The only gallery in Hamburg, this display of local artistic talent is a direct result of the Hamburg Area Arts Alliance. Originally occupying a much smaller space when it opened in June of 2007 (across the street from our current location), once the word got around, the Alliance’s membership numbers skyrocketed – jumping from around a dozen to now nearly seventy members. Of those, half have their work on display in the Gallery and interest keeps growing as local talent now appreciates having an affordable place for their art to be seen.
Our membership base runs from Reading to Schuylkill County, and east towards Allentown. The Hamburg Area Arts Alliance has provided an opportunity for local, aspiring artists to get a foot in the door of the world of art.
