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 makes fine, contemporary art accessible to the local community, and provides 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 do for the Williamsport arts scene. As a community resource, Arthaus Projects provides greater career opportunities in the arts for students, emerging artists and established artists that promote innovative, contemporary ideas.
Arthaus Projects is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization continuing the legacy of Converge Gallery as the next stage in the evolution of the Lycoming County arts scene.
