Art Alliance members' art show openings and events around town

ESCAPE! at the Art Alliance Gallery Downtown

show open this Friday, Jan 5 from 5-8pm

show runs Jan 5–28

The Art Alliance Downtown Gallery's new show 'ESCAPE' brings innovation and design into the art realm, featuring the designs of Winfield PA's own Gilson Snowboards, Philipsburg-based Organic Climbing gear, mountain bike fabrication by Jones (from Freeze Thaw, downtown State College), as well as climbing holds by local craftsman, Jim Bowers.

These applied arts along with extreme climbing photography by Daniel Gajda and paintings about escape from Jim Klotz, craft this show to encourage us to dream about where we can escape, engage, and get out of our standard modes of how to think about art.
