Explore, Reclaim, and Conserve: Huntingdon County Exhibit Open

img_2687-smThe current exhibit at The Art Space is a unique exhibit that is the result of a Call for Entries to area artists. Based on the theme, Explore, Reclaim, and Conserve: Huntingdon County, our artist community responded big time. Forty-eight artists submitted 134 pieces of art to create a terrific show. Artwork on display includes paintings, photography, jewelry, basketry, poetry, wall quilts, ceramics, one of a kind pieces and even a painted chair. The Conservation District also has some old bottles that they have found from their cleanup events.

The theme was inspired by a quote from Joseph Rothrock, the father of forestry in Pennsylvania: “I know that I come back from my trips there stronger than when I start on them. It is a soul-expanding process . . .”) The exhibit is in conjunction with the Huntingdon County Conservation District.

The exhibit will be open through Tuesday, October 25.

The Art Space is open:
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 12 pm to 6 pm
Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm

The Art Space is located at 212 Fourth Street in downtown Huntingdon.

Robert Lang is a physicist who worked at NASA studying lasers and has 46 patents on optoelectronics to his name. However, that's not what he's best known for now: he's a legend in the world of origami. His intricate designs are second to none, and they actually have applications back in engineering.
