If you enjoy visiting art exhibits and galleries as part of your stay at The Inn, Farmhouse, and Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill in Bloomsburg, you always have lots of choices all year long! You’ll find The Exchange Gallery, Artspace Gallery, and Bloomsburg University’s Greenly Gallery right in downtown Bloomsburg, plus the Haas Gallery of Art on the Bloomsburg Univeristy campus. Bucknell University in nearby Lewisburg, PA, features exhibits at both the Samek Art Gallery in the Elaine Langone Center on campus and at the Downtown Gallery in Lewisburg. Below are the exhibitions featured this fall.

The Artspace Gallery features artists Mike Silver, Annie Barnhardt and Jeff McGreevy in 3 Different Artists – 1 Incredible Show until November 12, 2017, while members of the Susquehanna River Arts are exhibiting works at The Exchange Gallery through the same date. The Susquehanna River Arts show features 34 pieces by ten artists from our local region: Sara Baker, Annie Barnhardt, Robert Brown, Gail Fox, Joan Gallup Grimord, Peter Grimord, Glen Klein, Sara Mika, Larry Ney II, and William Whitmoyer. Created by the Columbia-Montour Visitors Bureau, Susquehanna River Arts showcases works of local artists, highlighting the cultural assets of the region, and fostering appreciation of both their communities and heritage.

Bloomsburg University’s Haas Gallery of Art is hosting Revisited / Renewed, an exhibition of recent work by Eastern Michigan University’s Michael Reedy, through November 16, 2017.

A Senior Show, featuring the work of current BU students, opens with a reception on November 29 from 10:30 am until 3:00 pm. That exhibit continues through December 15, 2017.

The Gallery at Greenly Center will open a new exhibit November 3, 2017. Reunion, featuring works by Sarah Kulaga, Ellen Brennan and Ashley Lopez (LGBTQA Symposium Group Show) will be on display through December 5, 2017.

Visitors can enjoy Bucknell University’s Fall 2017, exhibits both in the heart of the campus, and at their Downtown Gallery in Lewisburg. You can see Laleh Mehran’s Inherent Control Cyphers at the Main Gallery of the Samek Art Museum in the Elaine Langone Center through December 3, 2017. Employing visual languages of Middle-Eastern and European cultures, Mehran has created an immersive multimedia installation that “invites viewers to consider the process in which we form our identities, ideologies, and allegiances and the rituals we perform to sustain them.” If you attend any productions at the University’s Weis Center for the Performing Arts, in the lobby you can enjoy a year-long display of Ralph Gibson’s black and white photographs of guitar masters playing their instruments entitled State of the Axe.

The Downtown Gallery currently features sculpture and interactive works by Sidney Mullis: Who is Puberty and How Does She Hit? These works explore “coming-of-age in a gendered society” through breaking down of social conventions into the raw materials of component forms and behaviors, then transforming them into new works. If you’re in downtown Lewisburg, you can stop by this exhibit through February 11, 2018.
