FEATURE ART ON TOUR EXHIBITIONS

January 17 – May 9 at Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art

Nature’s Palette

Mother Nature draws from a wide palette of colors to paint the beauty that surrounds us every day. Central Pennsylvania is rich with natural scenery and gorgeous landscapes, so it is no wonder that many artists and creative minds draw inspiration from the brilliance found locally.

Perry County Council of the Arts’ member artists interpret nature’s various hues and shades in this special off-site Art on Tour exhibition, showcased in the beautiful Olewine Gallery, surrounded by the center’s natural, wooded space. Most artwork will be available for purchase and all sales benefit local artists, Ned Smith Center, and PCCA.

May 1-31 at the PA State Capitol Building, East Wing Rotunda
