The Henry Gallery at Penn State Great Valley

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.

 Mosaic, Paintings, Ceramics and Fiber Arts in this show are made in the various creative workshops and homes at Camp Hill Village Kimberton Hills.  For some residents crafts are seen as a vocation, while others simply create art in their spare time.  Some of these pieces are a collaborative effort, for example, between the mosaic studio and the pottery studio, where a crafts-person needs to use multiple skills in order to complete one mosaic.  The creative arts are an avenue for self-expression and for building self-esteem, and we hope this show encourages others to take up pencil, paper, paintbrush, clay, fibers, tiles, or other media in a meaningful way to imagine  and create a more peaceful world.

Artists and Scientists are more alike than opposite. Both ask the questions - “Is it true, why does it matter, how can it be done”? They approach problems with open-minded inquisitiveness. They are risk takers,

and as they experiment, they are willing to make the mistakes that will lead them to answers. Materials and technology are their tools. And they seek affirmation for their results.

The exhibit features select works by: Ruth Ansel    Sue Benarcik    Gina Bosworth  Gynnie Moody    Mary Targonski     Valetta
