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 vision statement of the Hamburg Area Arts Alliance:  We envision a community that engages the arts, both visual and performing. There will be public art on display; street festivals and gatherings for artists, performers and the general public; galleries and other spaces for group and solo exhibitions and sales of artwork; and educational opportunities in the form of art classes and workshops, lectures and presentations. People of all ages and races will embrace the cultural and artistic movement transpiring in the area.

The Alliance was formed as a sub-committee of Our Town Foundation – Hamburg’s community revitalization corporation. There are currently more than 50 artist members; over 30 of them have their work on display and for sale in the Art & Craft Gallery of Hamburg, 320 State Street in Hamburg. Our membership consists of artists from Berks, Schuylkill and Lehigh Counties.

The Arts Alliance provides several opportunities through the year for artists to network with one another in addition to hosting numerous events in which member artists can display and sell their artwork. The Hamburg Area Arts Alliance recently presented Artdrenaline Summer Camp, a combination arts/sports camp, for grades kindergarten through sixth. Check out the fun by watching our YouTube video.
