Have you noticed the artistic-looking building along South Main Street with the mosaic mural on the side, but never explored all that it held?
The Foundry Artist Cooperative is home to an eclectic mixture of handmade works by artists from around the Cumberland Valley in Central Pennsylvania. The corner store houses a retail shop, where guests can purchase unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that are made locally, view rotating exhibits featuring the work of artists both local & national and learn new techniques.
The Foundry is a collective of creatives working together to support each other’s businesses and connect with the community. “It’s a great opportunity for artists to present their work to the public, while being part of a creative endeavor that enriches our community,” said Anne Finucane, a Foundry member.
Artists offer the public a wide variety of technical courses and recreational workshops (paint party, anyone?) for a fun evening with friends, gift ideas and a creative outlet. Classes include paint nights, mixed media workshops, seasonal creations such as “Halloween Mosaics” and more! Go to FoundryArtsCoop.com for information on all upcoming events.
The Foundry is part of the Chamber’s affiliate, Downtown Chambersburg Inc., and an initiative of the Chambersburg Downtown Business Plan. Over 30 artists make unique, handmade wares available at the beautiful retail space in downtown Chambersburg. Stop by 100 South Main St. and shop for unique creations in the Foundry’s new floor plan and design layout!
