2 Stockton Ave New Hope, Pennsylvania | Copyright © 2006 - 2010 New Hope Arts, Inc.
New Hope Arts, Inc. is an incorporated non-profit arts center that serves the important purpose of showcasing the work of contemporary artists in the Lambertville/New Hope area and Delaware Valley region. We seek to engage and enrich our local community through a broad array of programming that furthers the heritage of New Hope as a vital regional arts center. New Hope Arts presents four major group exhibitions annually across a broad array of media – sculpture, wood, painting, fine artisan crafts, and new media installations. In many cases, the work of local presenting artists would otherwise not be seen in a professional, public setting. New Hope Arts encourages emerging artists and seeks to introduce new audiences to their work.

New Hope Arts is dedicated to furthering the heritage of New Hope as a center for art and artists. New Hope Arts supports artists by fostering opportunities and providing space to create, collaborate and present their work. NHA offers residents and visitors of the region access to a broad array of contemporary visual, performing and literary arts.
New Hope Arts was established as a small community based arts organization by Robin Larsen in 2002. Robin developed innovative programs including an annual sculpture show, outdoor sculpture installations and a Wood show. She envisioned building an important regional arts center that would be integral to reclaiming New Hope/Lambertville as a top national arts destination.
In 2008, with support from prominent business leaders, New Hope Arts purchased the building at 2 Stockton Avenue in New Hope, Pa. The long term plan for the Center was to renovate and modernize the building to meet safety and accessibility needs. Planned improvements included upgrading the main Gallery space, adding additional gallery and teaching spaces and building a black box theatre for new and original works.
In 2011, the Board of Directors established a three year goal to improve the financial stability of the organization by developing viable, sustainable sources of contributed income and improving the level of earned income from exhibitions and gallery rentals. Significant progress has been made during the first two years of our three year plan.
In 2012 significant renovations to the historic mill building which houses the Center were completed. We have established a Membership Program that has attracted 250 members through December, 2012. We hope to increase our base by 25% in 2013.
We have built a small but growing base of larger donors that includes local
businesses, family foundations and the annual contributions from our directors.
