Annual Members Show

The Members Show is a celebration of artwork created by Art Alliance members. It is an eclectic show that capture the various interests of our artists and their chosen mediums. A typical show will include a variety of themes and subjects expressed through sculpture; pottery; watercolor, acrylic, and gouache paints; digital media; mixed media; collage; fiber; and photography.

The show is split between two months, with half of the artworks shown one month and the other half the following month. This year’s show will be exhibited at KISH Bank Expect More Store on St. Allen St. in State College during May and June.
