State College Photo Club 2nd Annual Youth Showcase and 75th Anniversary Exhibit

Stop by KISH Bank Expect More Store in October to see works from the State College Photo Club. Opening night for the show is during State College First Friday on October 7 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Drinks and snacks are generously provided by KISH Bank.

We are grateful to Ms. Danielle Crowe, Art Teacher and Curriculum Coordinator, State College Area School District, for her involvement in encouraging her students to participate in the State College Photo Club Youth Showcase. We are also grateful to Mr. John McQueary of State College Framing Company for his support for framing the high school photos.  The framed photos will be given to the participating students after the exhibition.

In addition to the Youth Showcase photos, several members of the State College Photo Club will contribute photos for display as part of the club’s 75th anniversary year celebration. For more information about the club and to learn about membership, please visit or email [email protected].
