New Boone’s poster image for their Dec. 3 Art Mart, from 11AM – 5PM.

‘Tis the season of art markets and craft bazaars and here’s one that caught our eye because it’s also a fundraiser for Puerto Rico — and it’s at New Boone, the scrappy artist collective in Old City…and because from the poster image (above) we cannot tell what kind of items or objects or things will be on view and on sale, which we think is cool, like a Pollyana kindof Art Mart.

New Boone Art Mart
Sunday, Dec. 3
11 AM – 5 PM
New Boone
253 N. 3rd St.

We are an artist collective, gallery, and studio space located on North 3rd street in Old City. We engage the art community in Philadelphia through events such as artists exhibitions, movie nights, lectures, artist critiques and creative publications. Our hope is to provide a space for artists to continue their studio practices and communicate their artistic ideas to the larger public.

On Sunday December 3rd we are hosting our 2nd annual Art Mart, where we transform our gallery space into a cozy gift market, hosting artists and craftspeople from the Philadelphia area. We also raffle off items donated by the vendors and local businesses. Proceeds go towards hurricane relief in Puerto Rico as well as future programming at New Boone. If you’re able, we would love for you to share this event on any of your platforms to help us make the Art Mart is even more successful this year.

Power not only corrupts it makes people delusional, witness Mary Boone’s corruption in passing off a forgery of a painting as the original. Oops. Via the New Yorker


Via Tina Plokarz and Teresa Jaynes…Watershed Art Project RFQ for artists for 23 environmental centers along the Delaware – DEADLINE DEC. 15, 2017

The Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River (AWE) was formed to create a region-wide constituency of advocates for improved water quality, clean waterways and the preservation of the health of the Delaware River and its tributaries.

AWE seeks to commission interdisciplinary high quality original works of art for its network of 23 environmental centers. The art at each center will serve as a focal point to inspire people to explore, enjoy, and engage with the watershed while creating awareness and advocacy for the protection and restoration of the Delaware River Watershed.

The outcome centers desire most is that the work highlights the connectivity of the watershed and the 23 centers involved.

Artists are welcome to apply as individuals or as a collaborative team. All 23 centers must receive a work. However, your proposed project may encompass either 1) works for all 23 centers or 2) works for a smaller subset of centers, in which case multiple projects (yours and others) will be selected so that, in the end, all 23 centers receive a work. In essence, the hope is that the art will act as a springboard for opportunities well into the future around which each center could design educational and interpretive programming.
