Montgomery County Community College will feature the artwork of the artists of Studio B of Boyertown during a “Members Show” from Monday, Nov. 5, through Friday, Dec. 14, at the Fine Arts Gallery, North Hall, 16 High Street, Pottstown.

A special “Meet the Artists” reception will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

Located in the heart of downtown Boyertown at 39A E. Philadelphia Ave., Studio B operates as a community art center and gallery that hosts monthly exhibits and classes for students of all ages. The gallery—established in 2008 by the Arts & Activities Alliance of Building a Better Boyertown—has more than 60 artist members, who specialize in an array of media and styles.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to exhibit the fine artwork of our talented artist members at MCCC’s handsome gallery,” said Susan Biebuyck, Studio B Gallery Director.

As an active member of the Boyertown area community, Studio B participates in several activities and events throughout the year, including Berks County Best Kept Secrets Tour (Nov. 2-17), the Fall Into Winter Tour (Nov. 17-18) and the Boyertown Holiday Open House Tour (Dec. 7).

The College’s Fine Arts Gallery also will be participating in this year’s Fall Into Winter Tour with Studio B’s Members exhibit. This annual art tour features local studios and galleries in Boyertown, Barto and the surrounding communities. For tour details and a map, visit www.studiobbb.org/fall-into-winter.
