Images Exhibition Gallery
The Images 2016 exhibition hung in Schlow Centre Region Library and in the Woskob Family Gallery of the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center from July 1 – 31, 2016. The galleries are on opposite corners of the intersection of South Allen Street and Beaver Avenue 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 2016 were selected by juror Daniel Massad, a pastel artist and artist-in-residence at Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA. He visited State College to make prize decisions in early July, and prize winners were announced at the Awards Reception on Thursday, July 14 at 6:30 pm at the Schlow Centre Region Library. Members of the public also voted for a “Viewers’ Choice” award, which was announced at the close of the show. All awards are listed below the gallery.
