Editor’s note: Congratulations to our friends at Art Fusion 19464. Arts revitalization is a key piece of Pottstown’s ability to reinvent itself and transform the borough into a once again thriving community!
POTTSTOWN, PA — As of this week, the Gallery on High is no more.
But don’t worry. You’re not going to miss any of the art exhibits, sales of local artists’ works or art classes offered there.
That’s because the nonprofit that offers appealing exhibits as well as engaging programming through its educational arm, the Gallery School of Pottstown, still exists at 254 E. High St. It just has a new name — Art Fusion 19464 — to go with a renewed and more acutely focused mission.
The name signifies the coming together — the fusion, if you will — of the gallery and educational portions of the organization, which launched in Pottstown in 2005, according to Erika Hornburg-Cooper, executive director and co-founder of Art Fusion 19464.
“We are evolving … again,” said Hornburg-Cooper. “We have so many arts and cultural amenities in Pottstown. This new name positions us as a destination.”
