Images Exhibition Gallery

The Images 2017 exhibition hangs in Schlow Centre Region Library from July 1 – 31, 2017. The Library is on the corner of Beaver Avenue and South Allen Street in downtown State College.  Allen Street is the “main street” of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts.

The annual Images exhibition is open to artists whose primary residence is in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The works in Images 2017 were selected by juror Kathryn E. Blake. 

Prize winners were announced at the Awards Reception on Thursday, July 13 at 6:30 pm at the Schlow Centre Region Library. Members of the public may vote for a “Viewers’ Choice” award throughout the exhibition in July, which will be announced at the close of the show.
