Muncy Historical Society hosts juried exhibition of fine arts

By Staff | Nov 9, 2016

MUNCY – The juried exhibition of Fine Arts in Pennsylvania returns to Muncy, courtesy of Muncy Historical Society featuring talented artists in Pennsylvania whose works are exhibited and collected nationally.

The tenth annual invitational Artists Exhibition and Sale will be held from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Nov. 11, and from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Nov. 12 at the Pennsdale Civic Center Social Hall, 261 Village Road, Pennsdale, PA.

This will be one of the last opportunities to participate in the 2016 Passport Program, an initiative sponsored by members of the Historical Organizations of Lycoming County with support provided by the Lycoming County Visitors Bureau. Entry forms will be available at the show and the prizes will be awarded on November 20.

To commemorate the show’s 10th year, there will be a special exhibit area comprised of a variety of artwork from the museum’s collection. The society continues to collect, preserve and exhibit pieces that highlight the many talented artists, both past and present, from this area. An architectural rendering of Ashhurst Manor, images from the Jean Mohr collection, and gunsmith Bill Kennedy’s handiwork are a few examples of the pieces that will be on display.

This year’s show proceeds will benefit the Muncy Historical Society’s educational initiatives and its outreach, including the third annual “Pops at Pepper Street” free concert performed by the Williamsport Symphony Orchestra, confirmed for Aug. 5, 2017, and other projects that focus on Muncy as a resilient community.
