Today’s world is saturated with imagery, and photography features prominently in our everyday lives. It provides the inhuman ability to freeze time, to capture a feeling, and to share our experiences with others. Photography validates the mundane and asks us over and over again to take a second look. It allows us to see beauty in small details and encourages us to share those moments with the world around us.  

Art Alliance Gallery Downtown’s newest exhibition, In Focus, features seven Centre County photographers as they invite us to see the world through their lenses. With a variety of interests and subject-matter, this exhibition explores the diverse aesthetics of our lives and brings the beauty of our world into focus.
