AN ARTFUL BUCKS COUNTY ESCAPE
Bucks County's picturesque countryside has been inspiring artists for centuries, from Edward Hicks's Peaceable Kingdom to the art colony in New Hope. That creative tradition is alive and well, and a new generation of artists are on display throughout Philadelphia's northern countryside. Come feed your artful addiction at one of Bucks County's great galleries.
• See the work of some of Bucks County's most talented artists at the Bucks County Visitor Center in Bensalem. Paintings, drawings, sketches, photographs and more are featured in a rotating display in the Visitor Center theatre. Click here to view the full exhibit schedule.
• As the name implies, Canal Frame - Crafts Gallery is the perfect place to pick up a framed piece of Bucks County art. Stop in any time to see some great works by local artists, or come for one of the gallery's special exhibits, like the annual Holiday Small Works Show, held every November through December.
