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.”


Now in existence for over 60 years, PAAG strives to keep that focus alive within the tri-communities through art shows, continuing education with the Masters of Art events, and collaboration with schools and businesses in the area.


We invite you to be a part of that vision!


The Pottstown Area Artists Guild, Inc is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization
