Local Artists Featured in the 4th Annual Juried Exhibition
at Schlow Library’s Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery
July 1 to July 30, 2013
Once again, the abundance of artistic talent in the State College area is apparent in the enthusiastic response to Schlow Centre Region Library’s 4th Annual Juried Exhibition.
Sixty-eight artists from a twenty-five mile radius of State College, including Centre Hall, Bellefonte and Warrior’s Mark, submitted work in an array of media, from fiber, sculpture, and collage to drawing, painting, and photography.
“The great response is a testament to all the wonderful talent in our region, and to the terrific appeal of Schlow’s Annual Juried Exhibition,” said Library Director Cathi Alloway.
The Gallery Selection Committee acknowledged the difficulty of choosing the 45 exhibition pieces from the richly diverse offerings. “It is always a thrill to see so much excellent work, and very challenging to choose,” said Maria Burchill, Gallery Coordinator.
As in previous years, the 2013 show is bound to be a hit with the hundreds of people who visit Schlow daily, as well as a special treat for out-of-town visitors during Arts Fest week.
This year’s juror, Patricia Howard, is a fine arts photographer and Assistant Professor of Art at Juniata College in Huntingdon, teaching digital art and photography. She holds a bachelor's degree at the University of Delaware, a MFA at Penn State, and has studied at Anderson Ranch Arts Center as well as the International Center for Photography in New York. She has exhibited her work locally at Penn State, Zola New World Bistro, and the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania, and will have a solo exhibition at the Juniata College Museum of Art in November, 2013.
The Juried Exhibition runs from July 1 through July 30, and is free and open to the public.
All are invited to an Opening Reception, sponsored by Friends of Schlow Library, on Thursday, July 11 from 7:00 to 8:00pm. Winners of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, as well as Best Student Piece, will be announced at that time.
