About PAAG

“To Promote, Inspire and Support the Artistic Spirit Within the Community”


The Pottstown Area Artists Guild (PAAG) was formed in 1960 with area artists Fred and Sarah Griesemer, Albert and Sylvia Sanft, Joseph F. Landis, Mildred Sands Kratz, and Dorla Dean Slider.

Their common vision was:

“To allow people to express themselves collectively. This includes art as therapy, art as education, and art as individual expression.

“To encourage art sales through the tri-county area.”

– “To promote art education and art appreciation within the community.”


PAAG strives to keep that focus alive within the tri-communities by offering:

The Masters of Art Talks and Demonstrations


Two Major Art shows. SPRING Open, Juried Fine Arts Show and WINTER Members Fine Arts Show.


Monthly Online Gallery 


Facebook and Instagram promotion of our Member’s Art


PAAG Member’s involvement with Upcoming Shows and Gallery Representations.


– For Artists List of exhibition opportinities.


For Art Lovers Upcoming Shows notices.


Not any different from the original vision:

– To promote, the value of artists and the arts in our community through exhibitions, social media platforms, and website.

inspire, the artistic spirit within the community through the continuing education of the Masters of Art talks.

– and support through collaboration with schools and businesses in the area.


We invite you to be a part of that vision!
