Art Exhibit: Essentially Savage, Paintings by Rob Savage

Rob’s work includes landscapes and floral depictions in a “fauvist” style, using a highly-concentrated pallet. His vision is intensified and inspired by Chester County’s landscapes and garden scenes. Rob is a current member of the Chester County Art Association, and was among the artists selected to represent their 75th Anniversary, Planters of Chester County. His studio is located in West Chester, PA.

After a cold, very rainy opening weekend, this exhibit has been extended so more people have the opportunity to enjoy Rob’s art. Meet the artist Saturday, May 6th, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

Malvern Arts Textiles

Do you love any form of needlework—or would you like to learn?  Join us each month for a delightful afternoon of stitching, conversation, and refreshments.  If you’ve never held a needle, are a master of needle skills, or somewhere in-between, if you’re interested, you will be welcomed. Questions or information, email Isabel at

Play Reading

Do you enjoy reading plays? So do we! Plays are chosen and announced ahead of time, so you can familiarize yourselves with the material. This program is for adults and teens, no experience required. Listeners are also welcome – there is no obligation to read. 

This month we will continue with Act II of Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward, a comedy about a novelist who invites an eccentric medium to his house to conduct a seance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his first wife, who attempts to disrupt his marriage to his second wife.

Sundays, May 14th & 28th at 6:00 pm

Community Choir

Malvern Arts has started a high quality community choir. This is a special opportunity to work on music from many genres with Renee Robinson-Way, a professional director, arranger, vocalist, accompanist and vocal coach.  Come sing with us!

Choir rehearsals are every other Sunday at 6:00 pm.
