Community 2019

Schuylkill Ceer Members, Neighbors,

Staff, Volunteers, and Friends

In the gallery

February – April 2019

The Schuylkill Center’s Environmental Art program is proud to have presented Community, a gallery show celebrating the art works of the Schuylkill Center’s community. Community was a non-juried, salon-style exhibition that celebrated the creativity of our members, neighbors, staff, volunteers, and friends. Featuring 92 artists of any age, medium, style theme, or concept, this show was a portrait of a vibrant, diverse, and multifaceted ecosystem of makers. This exhibition was on view in our gallery from February 21 to April 27, 2019 and an opening reception took place on February 21, 2019.  This was the second time that Community had been presented at the Schuylkill Center, the first being in 2017.
