Legacy Exhibition: Building a Community Art Museum
For over thirteen years, artists, staff and volunteers have worked to create the Bellefonte Art Museum for Centre County. Our work has been successful. The museum has become a destination for artists, patrons, and families. A place where community members share their inspirations and participate in imaginative programming. We want to take a moment to reflect on that community spirit and thank the many, many people who helped create our destination and continue to believe in the importance of art in our lives.
So, one way to recognize our artist family is to share a selection of art works done by artists who, for many years, have been a part of the Bellefonte Art Museum for Centre County. Artists play many roles at the community art museum fulfilling a myriad of volunteer opportunities including governance, maintenance, docenting, gardening, exhibition support, public relations and more! Thirty-four artists have been selected to show in this exhibition.
The museum's Artist Registry now consists of 168 artists, but for this show, we are including only artists who were a part of the museum in the first few years.Virtual Slideshow: https://www.facebook.com/bellefonteartmuseum/videos/1781291562037895/Gallery Talk with curator Patricia House and artists, Brienne Brown, Maryanne Fyda and Art Heim: https://www.facebook.com/bellefonteartmuseum/videos/735756927148601/
