They feature ever-changing exhibits by local and regional artists and in addition to engaging arts exhibits, Studio B also offers: “Fall into Winter,” an annual tour of artists’ studios, summer workshops for children; writing workshops; monthly art socials where artists gather, classes in visual and communication arts, poetry readings, history talks, book talks, and artist events. Studio B also holds an annual themed exhibit and book release event combining visual and literary art. The Bear Fever Art Walk through Boyertown was a product of this group of very creative imaginations.
