September brings a variety of new and inspiring events all around Phoenixville. From weekly to monthly events, or special one-time shows, Phoenixville is becoming an unstoppable artistic community.
The “Welcome to Phoenixville” Mural, recently created by Teresa Haag, is located on the corner of Bridge and Starr Streets. Don’t miss the unveiling ceremony at the mural location on September 23 at 4pm. A brilliant addition to downtown Phoenixville!
TECHNOLOGY AND ART
An exhibit of how technology has influenced new forms of art is opening at The Art Gallery at Franklin Commons on Saturday, September 26 from 1-4pm. While visiting this unique Opening Reception, you will see a wide range of artwork and listen to live music- free and open to the public. Other opportunities for artists include:
Sept 14- Art Critique 7pm
Sept 21- Costumed Figure Drawing 7pm
Art, music and performance art are alive at The Pickering Creek Inn on Bridge Street every Monday night. This weekly event variety show, hosted by Queenixville, is a great way to get your weekly art fix. Not only can you find art & music each Monday, an assortment of funky art and more can be seen at the Punk Rock Flea Market the last Sunday of every month!
Always bringing in new musical talent is Steel City- view interesting art, eat delicious food and enjoy upcoming shows including: Amy Correia (Sept 11), Aztec Two-Step (Sept 25) and Heston (Oct 2).
September brings Whirling’s & Turnings, a show featuring artists, Sabah Farooq and Jack Hansen at the Phoenix Village Art Center. October’s First Friday is a solo show by painter, Chris Boring.

Combining history and art is a special exhibit “Barn & Vine: The Lost Path to Rural Phoenixville,” that opens September 4 at the Phoenixville Historical Society. Tara Tayan’s photography captures the wild, rural and forgotten places of Phoenixville- an interesting look into the past and present.
Continuing up top at Molly Maguire’s is the Art Brunch ‘n’ Browse event, the second Sunday of every month (12-4pm). This month features local artists including Deadfish Media Group, Nika Morris, Funtabulous Mr Fig and more.
