The Henry Gallery

The Henry Gallery

The Henry Gallery strives to be a cultural asset for Penn State Great Valley and the local community. The Henry Gallery’s exhibition program focuses on group shows of local and regional arts and artists and the community organizations that support and encourage their work.

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.

Current Exhibit

The MCGOPA 20th Anniversary Exhibit
Presented by the Montgomery County Guild of Professional Artists (MCGOPA)
September 19–December 14, 2018

In celebration of their twentieth year as a co-operative, non-profit arts organization in the Greater Philadelphia Area, MCGOPA's exhibit will feature over 40 works by 22 artists. The artwork will include a variety of artistic mediums including work on canvas, work on paper, mixed-media work, wall sculpture, photography, sculpture and stained glass. Exhibiting artists include Joanne Barraclough, Millie Becker, Julie Bortnick, Alice K. Chung, Perky Cohen, Virginia Conover, Karen Love Cooler, Barbara Glickman, Greg Hunt, Clara Soyoun Kim, Susan Klinger, Pamela Lee, Anne Leith, May Lomax, Pam McLean-Parker, Gail Morrison-Hall, Deborah Northey, Rinal Parikh, Naomi Rubin, Irma Shapiro, Kathleen Spicer, and Sharon Steinhofer.

As evidenced by their varied artistic mediums and wide range of approach to subject matter, this collection of artists responds creatively to the world in vastly differing ways. Their unique forms of expression are heightened in the context of this rich group show where their work will be on view collectively to celebrate the guild’s first two decades of highlighting the work of area artists as it begins its third decade supporting visual artists and the arts.

Photographers have the unique ability to freeze moments in time. What differentiates the images is the photographer's perspective that crystallized that moment and made it unique.

A "Community of Photographers," the Chester County Camera Club is comprised of over 150 individuals interested in photography, ranging from seasoned professionals to those beginning their pursuit of the art form.
