Art Star, a gallery and boutique in the artistic Northern Liberties community, exhibits and sells handmade and limited edition items by emerging artists.

Hailed by Philadelphia Magazine as “the city’s first cutting-edge craft shop,” Art Star strives to carry artwork that is innovative and superbly crafted. And here’s a hint: the finds here make great holiday gifts.

The boutique offers shoppers anything and everything the imagination can produce — embroidered tote bags, screen-print dresses, handmade greeting cards and silver jewelry are all available for purchase.

Art Star also supports a growing network of burgeoning artists with exhibitions rotating every six weeks. You’re likely to see collages, paintings and needlework masterpieces lining the walls of Art Star’s inspired space.

While you’re shopping, co-owners Erin Waxman and Megan Brewster will gladly explain the stories behind the artwork. Both graduates of Philadelphia’s Tyler School of Art, Erin and Megan joined forces in 2004 to collaborate their expertise for a new and original boutique concept.
