My Mother's Refrigerator

Art show

December 2020

The My Mother's Refrigerator art show was designed to create exhibition opportunities for up-and-coming local artists who have never shown work at an established art institution. It is also a way to connect up and coming artists with community members.

This event was designed for folks who have never participated in a gallery show before, but it is also for community members who are looking to support artists by purchasing art.

Everybody's art makes it to My Mother's Refrigerator!
If you love to do art, and want to show it, network, meet new people, and have your art purchased by someone from our community, then this is the show to be a part of!

Our MMR show takes place on the second floor of Barrio:

140 N. 5th St.

Reading, PA. 19601

Barrio doesn't do regular performances. We do things differently:

Bring Cash

At our MMR, you will be supporting local artists. 100% of payment will go toward the artists. Barrio will not take any commissions off of art.



One of these art pieces will be the perfect gift for those hard to shop for people in your life. And you will get  to call yourself an art dealer at your next holiday party!

New to Barrio?

Barrio Alegria is a community transformation organization located in Reading that utilizes the arts as a platform for community engagement and for the development of social and multicultural awareness.


But all you have to remember is:

  • The majority of our projects happen outside!

  • The majority of our projects are free!

  • The majority of our projects have to do with art!
