Art Alliance Gallery Downtown will host a new group of artists every month.

With a brand new downtown location and fresh ideas, we are excited to share the many unique facets of art in Central PA with the community by showcasing the work of the talented contemporary artists in our area.

Most months will feature group shows as follows:

  • Six to eight 2D artists and two 3D artists will be invited to exhibit from First Friday to the end of the month. Exhibition space will be divided equally.
  • Fee is $50 for students and Art Alliance members $75 for non-members.
  • All artists in a show must commit to “sit” 8 hours during the month.
  • One month will be reserved for a fundraiser for the gallery.
  • All shows will have an opening reception, and publicity in social media, regional print media and other listings.
