Our Mission

New Hope Arts is dedicated to furthering the heritage of New Hope as a center for art and artists. We support artists by fostering opportunities and providing space to create, collaborate and present their work. New Hope Arts offers residents and visitors of the region access to a broad array of contemporary visual, performing and literary arts.

About Us

New Hope Arts, Inc. is an incorporated, 501(c)(3), 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 six to eight major 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 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.

Individual donors and foundations as well as the members of New Hope Arts community provide the support we need to continue programs and events that serve our mission. In recent years recognition of our service to the arts includes funding from The PNC Foundation Arts Alive program and The Bucks County Visitors Bureau.

New Hope Arts is located in a 200-year-old structure that has served many purposes over the years. Learn more about our historic building from the New Hope Historical Society.

Our Vision

New Hope Arts is addressing improvements to our facilities to preserve its history and allow better access, expand programming to serve a broader demographic, collaborate with other arts organizations, and raise awareness of the value of the arts in today’s technology driven culture. Our impact will be a highly visible and respected presence in the New Hope community and surrounding region.
