In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Studio B Fine Art Gallery wants to thank all those individuals, businesses, and organizations supporting our efforts through their donations, time, and talents.

As there are so many worthy efforts that appeal for our community’s charitable dollars, each donation, large or small, is appreciated and utilized in forwarding our mission. And, of course, we are grateful for the many in-kind donations of time and talent our volunteers offer. We couldn’t exist without these many types of support.

Throughout our history we have been grateful for the on-going generous support of donors including the James K. and Nancy Lang Boyer Family Fund of Berks County Community Foundation, the Boyertown Area Charitable Program of Berks County Community Foundation, Building a Better Boyertown, Liberty Environmental, Suzanne K. Biesecker through the The Effenesse Foundation, Linda and Jack Lignelli, Gretchen and Jake Lea, Lesley and Bob Misko, Sandy and Bob Wood, Rose and Williams Gross, and Bobbi Gail Lipton; for the continued involvement of our artist members; and for the many donations we receive throughout the year from art lovers in our community.

We continue to hope that our “angel investor” will walk through our door and eliminate the fundraising aspect of our efforts; there is so much fun to be had in the many other aspects of our work. We often envy galleries that are funded by trusts or are connected with colleges or universities.

The studio acknowledges donors who offer $250 or more by placing their name(s) on a ceiling beam in the studio. The “Beamers Club” showcases individuals and organizations whose funding has been integral to the studio’s survival. To date, the names of 52 individuals or organizations are noted on a ceiling beam.

In 2016-2017, the studio received donations from the following individuals or organizations and will add the following names to a ceiling beam as new “Beamers”:
Beth and Lyn Camella-Rich
Greg and Jane Levan
Rita Saville
