The gallery opened in 2010 and is named for Joseph and Marilyn Henry who made a major gift to expand its facilities, art acquisitions, and programs in January 2013.
Located on the second floor of the Penn State Great Valley Conference Center, the Henry Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and when the campus is open for evening events.

Celebration of Trees

Opening reception Thursday, April 23 | 5:30 – 7 p.m.
Sponsored by the Da Vinci Art Alliance (DVAA), this exhibit features photographs, prints, paintings, and mixed media works by Nancy Agati, Cynthia Back, Frank DiPietro, Linda Dubin Garfield, Jenn Hallgren, Amie Potsic, and Susan Stefanski. Potsic additionally exhibits site-specific photographic installations that reference the sensory experience of being within the forest while encouraging us to appreciate and preserve its future. All of the artists are inspired by the architecture of trees, their formative memories, the experience of being in nature, and environmentalism. To support improved environmental policies and draw attention to climate change, they manifest a connection to the earth and an understanding of the importance of forests.
DVAA is a non-profit art space based in South Philadelphia that provides resources, exhibition space, and community for our artist members and surrounding neighborhoods.
