Art with a little local history

The Carol Schwartz Gallery, which operated in Chestnut Hill for 30 years, has a pop-up shop in North Wales (1210 Bethlehem Pike) for the holiday season. One of the featured artists is MF Cardamone and her Botanical Visions collection. Everything in the store is 30% off.

One piece is tied to local history and the original makes its home at the Blue Bell Inn in Blue Bell. The piece shows a bluebell flower and four Revolutionary-era soldiers.

The original Blue Bell Inn, known as the White House, was constructed in 1743. While it originally provided lodging to hunters and travelers, George Washington stayed there during the Revolutionary War. Washington’s army had an encampment nearby on Lewis Lane after the Battle of Germantown in late 1777.

The popup gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
