Paradigm Gallery's New Home
Posted on December 10 2022
The new Paradigm Arts building will bring together artwork creation, collecting, and experiences all under one roof, with the goal of making engagement with art part of daily life in our community. Through our ownership of the building, we will be making huge steps towards a more sustainable, lasting future for the gallery and everything we do.
Meet the future businesses of the building:
Team Paradigm (L to R: Sara McCorriston, Paddy Magdon, Jessica Aguilar, Jason Chen)
Paradigm Gallery + Studio® was established in 2010 by co-founders and curators, Sara McCorriston and Jason Chen. The gallery exhibits meaningful, process-intense contemporary artwork from around the world. Now open 12 years, Paradigm Gallery is globally recognized and known as a tastemaker within their greater Philadelphia arts community. As the gallery grows, it maintains its original mission to keep art accessible. Through monthly donations, HAHAxParadigm public art installations, and collaborative initiatives, Paradigm Gallery continues to be a champion of small businesses and emerging and mid-career artists.
Paradigm Arts Club is a brand-new membership program in the new Paradigm Arts building providing first access to classes, workshops, and special events from your favorite artists and makers from around the globe. The program is launching in March 2023 and we are currently offering pre-paid one-year memberships for our upcoming 2023 programming.
Our new membership program will help to create a sustainable future for Paradigm in our future permanent home in Old City. Learn more about it and find out how to join here.
BYO Print is a collective of printmakers and communal studio, co-founded in 2010 by Katie VanVliet and Lauren Fischer. The shop opened during Philagrafika 2010, a citywide celebration of printmaking, in a modest, grungy loft overlooking a motorcycle shop in Fishtown. Over the years, new members and new equipment prompted the studio to seek bigger and brighter workspaces. BYO Print provides affordable, accessible printmaking space to independent artists on their own schedule & within a reasonable budget. Through all-access memberships, hourly rentals for occasional printers, and short-term residency projects, BYO Print enables printmaking - get inky with us! (byoprint.com)
BYO Print is currently located in Olde Kensington at 155 Cecil B. Moore Ave and will open its doors in Old City in Summer 2023.

HAHA x Paradigm is a Philadelphia based initiative that works with artists, creatives, and brands on an international level to create valuable art experiences.
Co-Founded in 2012 by Ginger Rudolph (HAHA Magazine), Jason Chen, and Sara McCorriston (Paradigm Gallery), HAHA x Paradigm curates and produces engaging public art projects on the thought that memorable art experiences are built on the benefits generated for the individual. (hahaxparadigm.com)
Team Robocandy (L to R: Kyra Ellzysmith, Langston Clement, Jefferey Carroll)
Robocandy is a company founded by Philadelphia’s Langston Clement. Since its founding, the company has created successful prototypes for an affordable, adaptable, multi-use gaming cabinet that calls back to the nostalgia of classic Japanese candy cabinets through the eyes of sleek, modern design. Robocandy is a recipient of NextFab's Rapid Hardware Accelerator Seed Funding Program and will be heading into the production/market phase of their product through this next step of the company’s journey.
We are thrilled to become the new home of Robocandy’s main office as part of our move into this building. The company’s presence is the perfect way to connect Old City’s history of art, design, and innovation with our new N3RD Street location.
Ekaterina Popova and Alicia Puig
We are happy to announce that our new Paradigm Arts Gift Shop will be your go-to spot to pick up each issue of Create! Magazine in Philadelphia. Our partnership will also include special launch parties for each issue release and two full-scale exhibitions from Create! Magazine and PxP Contemporary each year in our new Featured Guest Curator/Traveling Gallery space dedicated to rotating exhibitions from our favorite curators from around the globe.
Create! Magazine's mission is to make unique contemporary art accessible to everyone — whether you’re an emerging artist, maker, artpreneur, or simply have a love for art. Each issue is filled with vibrant contemporary art, craft, design, and inspiring stories of makers from around the world. Celebrating emerging contemporary artists and creating a welcoming and inclusive community through our print issues and online platforms is our passion.
PxP Contemporary is an online platform that connects collectors with high-quality, affordable artworks. We believe in transparent pricing, building meaningful relationships with our clients, providing exceptional customer service, and above all, supporting the talented artists who we work with and represent. CEO & co-founder Alicia Puig and co-founder Ekaterina Popova, with a combined 15+ years of experience working in the arts, launched PxP to challenge the traditional gallery model and make the process of buying art a more accessible, digital-friendly experience. Art lovers, whether looking to add to an already established collection or acquire their very first piece, can browse our curated selection of art with fixed prices up to $2,500 by contemporary artists from around the globe. As of December 2020, Alicia expanded the gallery mission by donating a portion of the proceeds of all sales to various charitable causes including environmental conservation, social justice issues, mental health awareness & support, childhood education, animal protection, and more.
Butterfield Editions is a fine art printing studio based in the great city of Philadelphia. Founded by artist Katie Tackman with over 12 years of experience, we work with photographers, artists, and designers to create vivid prints and publications from a full range of media (digital, film, original artwork, family photos, a sketch or even a camera phone image). Our process emphasizes the power of collaboration, in that we offer an initial consultation with you to understand your needs and then we work with you to bring an artful eye to every aspect of the final product. We offer a range of fine art archival papers from Hahnemühle, Canson, and Epson as well as unique material options like Tyvek, fabrics, lightbox film, and wallpaper which all help us take your work to the next level.
Heather Shayne Blakeslee, Founder of Root Quaterly
Root Quarterly (RQ) is a print-only, subscription-based quarterly journal rooted in Philadelphia, but celebrating artists, entrepreneurs, makers, and doers from Pennsylvania and the mid-Atlantic region. Our ideas pieces provide critical analyses of larger nationally relevant cultural touchstones: ideas, books, and arguments. In collaboration with our editorial partners, we also reprint articles and essays that we think deserve a larger audience. Expect profiles, recommendations, fiction, poetry, essays, and analysis. Expect art. Expect to hold something in your hand that you might want to curl up with on a Sunday afternoon that may by turns delight, challenge, and inspire you.
Single issues of RQ will be available for sale at the Paradigm gift shop. Throughout the year in the building’s various galleries, we will meet collaborators and host parties, panels, and symposiums, to celebrate art and ideas and build and sustain community.
