Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art


Nature’s Palette
A Perry County Council of the Arts “Art on Tour” Exhibition
Reception: Saturday, Feb. 29, 1 pm – 4 pm
Mother Nature draws from a wide palette of colors to paint the beauty that surrounds us every day. Central Pennsylvania is rich with natural scenery and gorgeous landscapes, so it is no wonder that many artists and creative minds draw inspiration from the brilliance found locally.
Perry County Council of the Arts’ member artists interpret nature’s various hues and shades in this special off-site Art on Tour exhibition, showcased in the beautiful Olewine Gallery, surrounded by the center’s natural, wooded space. Most artwork will be available for purchase and all sales benefit local artists, Ned Smith Center, and PCCA.
With headquarters in Newport, Perry County, Perry County Council of the Arts showcases the artwork of more than 150 local artists at PCCA Gallery on the square and offers creative opportunities and arts experiences at its historic Landis House. PCCA’s mission is to build community through the arts in its four core programs: PCCA Gallery, Landis House, Arts in Education and Community Programs. Within this context, PCCA nurtures the creative spirit in adults and children of all backgrounds and skill levels, supports artists and celebrates their successes, enhances the local economy and implements arts education initiatives in seven counties. For nearly 40 years, PCCA has brought art, vitality and culture to Perry County and the local region.
Explore beautiful nature-inspired works by PCCA members in this special exhibition, “Nature’s Palette,”and meet the artists at the reception on Feb. 29, from 1 pm to 4 pm.
