From the Artists

The Foundry is a great opportunity for artists to present their work to the public, while being part of a creative endeavor that enriches our community.

Anne Finucane Foundry Artist

I joined this artist cooperative to see The Foundry succeed in bringing arts to downtown – and maybe sell a painting or two in the process.

Christine Traverse Foundry Artist

I became interested in the Foundry because it is a cooperative community focused on expanding awareness of the arts through Franklin County. I am looking forward to meeting other local artists and joining in this mission.

Natasha Goessel Foundry Artist

I joined The Foundry to support the growth of the arts in Chambersburg and to interact with other artists.

Jean Frey Foundry Artist

The Foundry is all about getting the art community together to support each other while giving the community a local spot to come enjoy art. I love to being apart of that community to connect with like minded people and gain exposure for my own artwork.
