Art In City Hall (AICH), an initiative of the City’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative (OACCE) presents Crafting Narratives, a juried exhibition selected by Bruce Hoffman, the Director of Chestnut Hill’s Gravers Lane Gallery.
The exhibit is part of an annual fall series of exhibits and events organized by CraftNOW Philadelphia. For 2019, CraftNOW presents the theme of Craft Capital to visitors as a means of discovering Philadelphia as a prominent place for craft. Expanding on this theme, Crafting Narratives features the work of 34 Philadelphia area artists exploring story-telling forms through hand-made art.
