‘Mindful’ Crowd Gathers in Gallery

A large and attentive crowd turned out Thursday evening for a special lecture and reception held in conjunction with “Mindful: Exploring Mental Health Through Art,” the first exhibition of The Gallery at Penn College’s 2018-19 season. Guests gathered in the Madigan Library’s second-floor reading loft to listen to a deeply personal 45-minute talk and visual presentation by “Mindful” artist Meredith Grimsley, a professor of fabric design at Bloomsburg University. The gallery, on the third floor of the library, was active from 5 to 7:30 p.m. with conversation and art exploration. Organized by the Society of Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh and supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, “Mindful” will run through Oct. 11. The exhibition also features educational outreach efforts, including workshops as well as daylong events for veterans and high school students. Special exhibit hours are: 1-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, 2-7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesdays, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Fridays. The gallery is closed Mondays and on Sept. 1-2.

The art display is stunningly beautiful. I wish I was in Williamsport to see the display.
