The Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress is teaming up with the Hazleton Art League, local artists and artisans, businesses, and other community partners to offer the first ever Greater Hazleton Art Trail! This is a self-guided tour of artist studios, galleries, and other creative "maker" spaces throughout the Greater Hazleton Area. Artists and artisans will exhibit different mediums, such as painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, clay, glass, paper, wood, metal, fiber, and more! All the artists/gallery owners will be on hand to show their studios, discuss their work/collections, and meet buyers and browsers alike.

Also on the trail will be recommended stops for handcrafted beer, ice cream, and other “creative consumables" to keep you happy! 

The Greater Hazleton Art Trail will be open to the public on Friday, November 1, from 5-8 PM , and Saturday, November 2, from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM.  Trail guides (passport with map and detailed information about each artist/gallery) cost $10/person and will be sent electronically (in downloadable PDF format for printing), or as a link to a mobile app that you may install on your smartphone. Alternatively, you may purchase your paper trail guide at the Hazleton Art League (225 E. Broad St.) at any time during event hours. Visitors must present their guide (paper or electronic format) at each trail stop for validation.
