Sad news…

As I am sure you have noticed by now, the Art Alliance has had to make the hard decision to not continue the Art Alliance Gallery Downtown. With COVID-19 restrictions and an uncertain future, it was too difficult to maintain the level of activity in a way that made sense and was sustainable. 

That said, this website will continue to be up for at least a few more months, so if you have State College and surrounding area activities that are happening you would like to see here, just send us an email at and we will be happy to post them. 

We have also kept up the online galleries we posted earlier in the year with artwork from our Members Show 2020 and Recycled Show 2020, so feel free to peruse those at your leisure. 

We wish you all the best for 2021! And we hope to see you via Zoom at one of the Art Alliance online classes in the near future — Winter 2021 classes begin the week of Jan 14.

speaking of supporting the arts… 


You, too, can be a Rent Angel!

As part of a sustainted effort to keep the downtown gallery open and operational as an art gallery, the Art Alliance has initiated a Rent Angels program through which members of the public can sponsor the gallery for a month (for more info see founding contributors Dolores A. Taricani and Richard L. Kalin’s letter here).

If you are interested in joining  in supporting the visual arts in downtown State College through our Rent Angels program, please contact the Art Alliance office at 814-234-2740 or email us at
