Our Next Program

“Art from the Archives”

Friday August 22 at the Station Gallery

2 East Bald Eagle Street

A large number of pieces from our art collection will be on display at the Arts Council’s Station Gallery!  We’ve scoured our attic to find local artists who achieved prominence in the early part of the 20th Century in Clinton County.  Pieces on loan from Lock Haven University and private collectors will also be featured.

 Come see oil and water colors, charcoal and pencil drawings of historic sites in our area.  Some artists displayed are John Sloan, Annie Snyder, Margaret Raymond, John J.A. Dixon, H.H. Welch and Edna Bottorf.

Our Timeline of Clinton County History began in February.  New  additions are on display each month.  We began with 1839.  The current installment covers 1911 to 1945 with artifacts from WWI and WWII.  We have photographs of the ambulance corps and the the airmail planes from New York making their first stop in Lock Haven on the New York-Chicago route!

Come see us!
