What a great way to start the year! This past weekend at the Urban Art Gallery, we were proud to host our first "foodie" inspired event called, "The Taste."
At this event, we featured three amazingly talented Philadelphia Chefs: Chef Andre, Chef Kurt, & Chef LaTasha. All three competed for the affection of the crowd and for the opportunity to host their own pop-up restaurant at the Urban Art Gallery. By the end of the night, Chef Kurt (@kurtcooks) was the winner!

We had a LOT of fun at the gallery this past Summer and one of the major highlights was the weekly "Cocktails And Canvases" series hosted by ConcreteCakes.com and featuring two amazing artists, Shanina Dionna and Serena Saunders. We had the only event in the city that blended a Paint Night with a real Happy Hour experience. We provided a paint class, open bar, free food and great music. And the people loved it!
The last one was August 27th...BUT due to popular demand, we're working towards bringing it back for the Fall. Stay tuned! Until then check out these photos!
The Urban Art Gallery in Philadelphia continues to support local artists each month with a new exhibit. This month the gallery is featuring a collective of artists known as Sharp With Art Group (S.W.A.G). Rell Styles is the CEO of S.W.A.G and Garron Gibbs of ConcreteCakes.com spoke with him briefly to discuss the group, the exhibit “Levels” and the future of S.W.A.G.
The phrase “Art Life” can mean so many different things. I appreciate the analogy because of Art’s ability to restore what was once broken and discarded, transforming it into something beautiful and transcendent. Life has a way of doing the same in some cases. One such case is that of Philadelphia’s Leroy Edney.
