Gallery Announces New Season of Artistic Engagement

The Gallery at Penn College announces its 2015-16 exhibition season, featuring innovative and talented artists working across a range of mediums.

The eight artists featured in the gallery’s new season hail from across the country and internationally. Their work explores internal questions, external societal issues, nature, the human body and more through fiber, collage, sculpture, pen on paper, photography, digital media and mixed-media drawings.

“The eight artists we are featuring this year are exceptional,” said Penny Griffin Lutz, manager of The Gallery at Penn College. “I believe visitors will be engaged with the contemporary art we have selected. I encourage our regular visitors and new visitors to stop by the gallery often to see what is new, and to attend the gallery talks in order to interact with our visiting artists.”
