Great Valley to host opening reception for 'Celebration of Trees' art exhibit

MALVERN, Pa. — Penn State Great Valley will host an in-person opening reception for its latest art exhibit, “Celebration of Trees,” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, in the campus’ Henry Art Gallery.

The exhibit will be on display until Dec. 7 and features works by artists in the Da Vinci Art Alliance that support improved environmental policies and draw attention to climate change. The presentation comprises photographs, prints, paintings and mixed media works by Nancy Agati, Linda Dubin Garfield, Jenn Hallgren, Amie Potsic, Susan Stefanski and Christine Stoughton. All the artists are inspired by the architecture of trees, formative memories, being in nature and environmentalism.

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.
