Muncy Historical Society hosts juried art exhibition
View fine arts and contemporary crafts
The eighth annual Invitational Artists Exhibition and Sale will be held on Friday, Nov. 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., and on Saturday, Nov. 8, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The show returns to the Pennsdale Civic Center Social Hall, 261Village Road, Pennsdale, PA. Friday night’s opening includes a reception with complimentary wine or beer, hors d’oeuvres by Country Store catering, and music by members of the Williamsport Symphony Orchestra. Friday night admission is $15 per person; Saturday admission is $10.
In addition to the Country Store and Symphony partnership at Friday’s reception, there are a number of other special features to this year’s show. Most artists will be available during both Friday and Saturday hours to meet and greet show attendees and many will be demonstrating their craftsmanship. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a silent auction.
Selinda Kennedy has crafted a commemorative redware “butter mold” tile that will be available for purchase from the museum’s booth; it will also be a complimentary gift for purchases totaling $1,000 or more. Artists Steve Getz and Judith Cole Youngman collaborated in the design of “Quilts of Muncy,” a limited-edition poster using a collage of quilts.
The show will feature some of the most talented artists in Pennsylvania whose works are exhibited and collected nationally; many share a close relationship with Lycoming County and the surrounding area. It includes a wide range of arts and craftsmanship, including photography, oil painting, jewelry, fashion, pottery, metal- and wood-working, quilting, mosaics, watercolor, sculpture, and home décor.
This year’s artists include Michael Coppes, Tammy Daneker, Linda Doucette, Dorothy Fisher, Richard Karp, Jeff Keiffer, Selinda Kennedy, Laura Knorr, Deb Parsons, Kris Robbins, Mark Robbins, David Seybold, Roger Shipley, Theresa Crowley Spitler, Bruce Storm, Nella Godbey Storm, Sue Swisher, Christine Washack, Wynn Yarrow and Judith Cole Youngman.Visit Event Website for More Info
