This quirky little Northern Liberties boutique/gallery is committed to providing local budding artists an opportunity to be seen and hopefully make a buck. One-of-a-kind and limited-edition ceramics, prints, clothing, dolls, and jewelry are sold on a consignment basis.
Exhibitions rotate every six weeks and range from cartoon paintings to unusual stuffed animals and other household items. Named “the city’s first cutting-edge craft shop” by Philadelphia magazine, Art Star offers an eclectic mix that reflects the diverse Northern Liberties arts community.
