A PLACE TO COME TOGETHER Craft Hall is a new experiential dining, drinking, and entertainment space located on Delaware Avenue in the Northern Liberties. Designed as an “Ode to Philly” with decor inspired by the city, Craft Hall is housed in a 35,000 sq ft warehouse with over 500 indoor and outdoor seats. The space offers food and activities that the whole family can enjoy, including an indoor playground, games, and an outdoor “Farm Yard” with chickens and rabbits. Recently voted “Best Bar for Parents” by Philadelphia Magazine! The open concept space highlights how our bread is baked, meat is smoked, and beer is brewed, providing a unique experience and better understanding of the craftsmanship that went into creating them. Our menu focuses on simple American classics made with local ingredients. A true maker’s space, Craft Hall is home to Mainstay Independent Brewing Company and Lost Bread Co. Bakery.
I have been a landscape painter for many years, where the dappled sunlight, sky and trees become my studio, as they do for the impressionists. At the Pennsylvania Academy, I earned the Cadwalader Prize for Landscape Painting, and have continued painting out of doors since my graduation in 1990. Gallery affiliations include the F.A.N. Gallery and Sande Webster Gallery in Philadelphia, and the Somerville Manning Gallery in Delaware; and museum exhibitions include the Woodmere Art Museum, National Liberty Museum, and the Ellen Powell Tiberino Museum of American Art in Philadelphia. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, I travelled and painted in Spain for several years, incorporating the splendid Spanish light into my compositions to enhance a sense of luminosity and depth. I have held workshops and hosted art tours through Spain, the American Southwest; and more locally through Bucks County, Manayunk, and Chestnut Hill. I continue to paint and hold classes through my studio, and out of doors throughout the Philadelphia area.
