The Art Alliance has a new downtown State College gallery space!!

New Art Alliance Gallery Downtown

Kelsey with new gallery sign

We were sad to learn that Margaux Wolsczcan of the Fraser Street Gallery was moving to Puerto Rico and giving up the gallery. She has done such an amazing job making that a go-to spot for art in downtown State College and we wish her all the best in her new adventure!

But we are happy to report that Margaux contacted the Art Alliance about her plans and we now have an opportunity to take over the space and operate it as a gallery for our members!

We will be having original shows, approximately one every month, with a variety of themes, artists and media.

Our new gallery manager, Kelsey Rieger, will be working with us to make this new space for us an exciting and vital part of the downtown State College art experience.

Our first show!

Art Alliance Gallery Downtown's first show is this October, with our opening reception held in conjunction with First Friday State College, October 7, from 7–9pm.

Gallery Information

Check our Art Alliance Gallery Downtown website for more information about the upcoming shows, gallery details. If you would like to be considered for an upcoming show, you can complete an application online.
