We Did It Our Way Exhibit
October 7 - October 29FREE
The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is pleased to announce the Wellsboro Art Club’s annual exhibit. The club member’s “We Did It Our Way” exhibit which emphasizes the members individuality will be on display in the Main Gallery from October 7 – October 29. The exhibit will open with a free reception for the public on Saturday, October 7th from 2-4PM with refreshments provided by the art club members, and a little entertainment for guests as well. Wellsboro Art Club members work in a wide variety of mediums, including watercolors, acrylics, glass, fiber, jewelry, sculpture, ceramics, and mixed media. This incredibly creative group never fails to please with their show.
The Wellsboro Art Club first formed in 1948 with a group of local painters who wanted to work and learn together. Over the years, the group expanded to include crafts as well as fine arts. The Wellsboro Art Club meets formally at 10 AM on the first Thursday of each month in the Studio at the Gmeiner. They have informal studio time the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursday of each month from 10AM – noon.
When the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center first opened in 1969, members of the Wellsboro Art Club served as “hostesses” (now called docents) during public showings of Mr. Gmeiner’s works, and began to arrange for exhibits of other local artists and area children. Since the art club has long had such a close association with our founder, it only made sense to also display some of Arthur Gmeiner’s works during the month of October in the Atrium gallery. The focus of this exhibit will be on “He Did It His Way” and will focus on Mr. Gmeiner’s individuality. Some of his quirkier artworks and those that show his sense of humor will be displayed.
The Gmeiner is located at 134 Main Street, Wellsboro, behind the Green Free Library. We are open from 12-6PM Tuesday through Sunday and admission to the gallery is always free. This display is appropriate for all ages, and there will be a scavenger hunt activity for children.
