A Craft Adventure of Philadelphia led by Led by Lewis Wexler of the Wexler Gallery

A very limited number of slots for this Spring Craft Weekend Auction Adventure are being offered for early registration on a first come/first serve basis. The remaining spots will be offered April 1 at the Spring Craft Weekend Gala. 

Welcome to the City of Brotherly Love. Home to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Cheesesteaks, Rocky and of course art. This magical tour will take you into the homes of some of the most prominent collectors in the Philadelphia area. You will also get a chance to see artists at work in their studios, many of which are not opened to the public. Of course no visit would be complete without touring the exceptional museums that Philly has to offer. There will be a number of surprise guests to add to the excitement.

And of course Philly is known for great restaurants. You will always leave the city well fed. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the heart and soul of Philadelphia’s cultural offerings. It will be a time to remember.
