PA Live! Blog of the Week: AFA Gallery Blog

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on the WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is the AFA Gallery Blog (http://artistsforart.org/blog.html.)

Scranton is a city full of artistic and creative people, and it is inevitable that in such a place there will emerge gathering spots for those artistic and creative individuals. The AFA Gallery - the letters stand for "Artists for Art" - was founded in 1988 to serve just such a purpose. The AFA Gallery's goal, according to their "About" page, is "to promote the appreciation of the visual arts, and to provide support for regional visual artists." In addition to mothly exhibitions the AFA Gallery also hosts the Tuesday Night Life Drawing Group, and the "Drawing Social," a drawing session accompanied by live music.

The AFA Gallery blog is a way of keeping the public informed of events - not just at the AFA Gallery, but art events throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. More than just a static website, the AFA Gallery blog allows information to be presented in a way that fully engages the reader.

If you're an artist who lives in Northeastern Pennsylvania, you should definitely check out the AFA Gallery blog to see all that they have to offer. And then perhaps find your way to the AFA Gallery itself to experience it in person! The AFA Gallery is located at 514 Lackawanna Avenue in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
