Our Mission

CCW's art program involves not only personal artistic growth in the studio but professional development as well. We encourage our artists to exhibit and sell through gallery exhibitions, working with them to consider a broader audience in the community for their work.

Our artists have been featured in a number of Philadelphia-area galleries and museums, including Fleisher/Ollman, VOX Populi, Bluestone Fine Arts Gallery, FJORD, Pageant:Soloveev, and the Woodmere Museum. 

For more information on exhibitions, or to view our archives, contact Exhibitions Coordinator Samantha Mitchell.
