A retrospective on the works of M. Robert Des Marais will be featured in the gallery throughout the month of July. An associate professor at Pennsylvania State University, Des Marais was heavily influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and was one of State College's most prolific architects. His design for the facade of the first Schlow Library on College Avenue will be among those prints on display.
The gallery is located on the first floor of the library next to the Community Room and the front entrance. The objective of our exhibits is to enrich the aesthetic environment of the library and the community and to promote works by local artists. Art is interpreted broadly to include paintings, sculpture, crafts, etc.
A gallery committee solicits and reviews applications from artists and oversees gallery operations. The committee meets periodically throughout the year to review applications.
