Ambler Main Street is home to many of Montco’s stylish boutiques and fabulous restaurants. But one of Ambler’s best kept secrets is its unique art gallery, Art in the Storefront. Here, you can view work from local artists on display through the windows of the old Denny Electric building.
Co-owned and operated by Karen Keiser and Mark Elliot, Art in the Storefront offers its patrons a chance to view and purchase work from local artists in a convenient and easily accessible space. The gallery exhibits one local artist per month, writes Emily Keel for Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board.
Previously occupied by Denny Electric, the building underwent a series of renovations to transform it into Ambler’s most unique art gallery. There is no “indoor” space, all of the pieces are displayed in the windows, hence the name “Art in the Storefront.”
The gallery opened after Karen made the move from Buffalo, NY to Montgomery County. She met partner Mark Elliot and in 1999 Art in the Storefront was born.
The duo shares the same passion for art as they do for their local community. As a result, Art in the Storefront aims to promote local artists who work in a variety of mediums.
In addition to showcasing the wide range of talented artists living in Montgomery County, Art in the Storefront partners with local businesses at every opportunity.
The most prominent example of this commitment to the community is their longstanding relationship with Denny Electric, a local lighting company. Denny Electric provides all the lighting fixtures for the window displays.
Unlike most other galleries, Art in the Storefront is always open given its unique layout.
