Mission Statement

The mission of Artists For Art (AFA) Gallery is to foster an appreciation of the visual arts, to present the visual arts to the Northeastern Pennsylvania region and to provide support to regional artists.

Founded in 1988, AFA (Artists For Art) Gallery has become a significant member and advocate for the arts community of greater Northeast Pennsylvania. Hundreds of visual artists are exhibited on the walls of AFA and the gallery is proud to be a supporter and partner of numerous other creative-arts organizations.

There are many activities and organizations associated with AFA Gallery. Some of these include First Friday Scranton, Scranton Fringe Festival, Everhart Museum, Lackawanna County Arts & Culture Department, the Northeastern Biennial, Arts Alive and many more!

The funding for AFA comes from a variety of sources. Membership dues, proceeds from fundraising including our annual auction, and commissions from works sold in the gallery are all important sources of revenue. Additional funding comes via grants from such supportive partners as the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Arts In Education NEPA and Lackawanna County Arts and Culture Department. Above all, AFA is supported through the donation of goods and services from our members.
