Spring Thaw Opening Reception

An Opening Reception will be held Friday, April 7 from 6 to 8 pm for our annual Spring Thaw Youth Art & Writing Exhibition.

Every year the Huntingdon County Arts Council invites area youth to showcase their artistic talent. And boy, did they response this year. We have 209 pieces, from kindergarten to high school seniors, and from schools throughout the county and a little beyond. The talent is amazing. (And lets applaud the nurturing that our area art teachers provide for their students.)

Join us for light refreshments and a chance to appreciate the fantastic youth of our area.

The exhibit will be open through Saturday, April 29.

This is a juried show,
There will be an Awards Ceremony at 3 pm, Saturday, April 29 (Mayfest).
Students may take their artwork after the ceremony.

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.

There will be wine, snacks, and good conversation!

Robert Lang designed our Peace Flight sculpture that is on Bryon Street up to the hospital. His origami work was translated into the metal sculpture and was installed in September 2013. He also came to Huntingdon to lecture on origami. His work is amazing. ...

Robert Lang is a physicist who worked at NASA studying lasers and has 46 patents on optoelectronics to his name.

Join us Wednesday, May 3 at 6:30 pm for a Chair-ity Auction. The Huntingdon County Library and the Huntingdon County Arts Council will be co-hosting the auction which will raise funds for both organizations. The event will feature a silent auction of chairs painted by local artists and will also have raffle baskets. Tickets to the event are $10. The first chair is called "Play" and was painted by seniors Drew Watson and Emily Wennick. The second chair is called "Color SPLAT!" and was painted by sophomore Logan Allen and senior Jonathan Bair. All the artist are students in Erin Shaffer's 3D Design class at Huntingdon High School. If you'd like a chance to bid on this chair, stop by the Library or Arts Council for a ticket or buy one at the door. Join us at Mayfest today to see the chairs in person and keep watching our social media for more chair and basket previews before the auction. Sponsored by The Daily News.
