- The Founder's Exhibition will run through May at The Gallery, lower Bucks campus of Bucks County Community College in Bristol. The exhibit is featuring the works of Rose Marie Strippoli and Rodney Miller who were instrumental in making this a success.
- Thanks to all who came out to support "Show Some heART." The grand tally so far is that more than 60 pieces have sold! We were glad to partner with Bucks County Community College on this collaborative effort. And we salute the wonderful ACCBC members including Artists of Yardley, Artists of Bristol, Artsbridge, and New Hope Art League who helped make this event happen.
Mission is to foster, strengthen,
and promote Bucks County’s diverse arts and culture, thereby
contributing to a more vibrant community.

The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County is undergoing several transitions.
In 2011, the Arts Council welcomed new members to the Board of Directors including a new board President. In
recent months, our new leadership has been working on transitioning to a
more effective database. During this time we've realized that there has
been some decrease in communication with our valued members - both
directly and via our website. While we experienced a slow down in sending reminders for membership renewals, we've been working on getting things back on track.
We hope you will continue to support us and remain in touch. We want and need to hear from you! As a reminder, please consider renewing your ACCBC membership by following the instructions at the top of this page. For new members, click the Join button on the top left or mail a check with your Off-Line Registration form to the address below. Membership categories and rates are listed on the website. In addition, Like us on Facebook! Our Facebook page is the best way to stay current on what's new with us. We encourage you to friend us and remind your friends to do the same. You can also post your events here, as well as our online Calendar! We are looking forward to a productive and viable 2013, and seeing you among our supportive members.
As an artist or arts lover, we encourage you to join us in our mission.
