​"Factory In Bloom"

Work due Saturday, May 16th, 2020

Show runs Monday, May 18th through Friday, June 12th

Reception 6-8 p.m., Saturday, May 30th

We have invited a group of Williamsport artists to show here. The Pajama Factory has been an incubator for creatives representing a variety of disciplines and aesthetic traditions for over 13 years. One of the most exciting things about this process has been its ability to regenerate itself creativity throughout the region. The Pajama Factory’s relationship with The Exchange Gallery has been longstanding including two exchange exhibitions, one at the Factory Works Gallery and another at The Stairwell Gallery at The Exchange’s former home in The Moose Exchange. Additionally, long-time tenants of The Pajama Factory including Chad Andrews and Brian Spies have played important roles with The Exchange -- Chad as a board member and Brian as the original Art Cart facilitator. As the curator of this show, Brian has focused on Factory tenants who either might not have previously been included in shows at the Exchange or are relatively recent additions to the Pajama Factory community. The artists chosen represent formal traditions as varied as watercolors and printmaking, assemblage and encaustics. They all embody the spirit of a Community In Bloom!

"Cover of a Cover" open call show

Work due Saturday, June 13th, 2020

Show runs Monday, June 15th through Friday, July 10th

Reception TBA

Celebrating The Exchange's tenth anniversary, we have brought back one of the most popular open-call shows from the past: Show us how YOU reimagine a record album cover!

​During the 2015 "Cover of a Cover" show, Sam Dion, one of Bloomsburg's artist treasures, brought in original album cover art that he did for the Silhouette's album "Get a Job" -- in 1968!  We hung the original along with a reproduction of the album cover, plus a mock-up of the album's back cover, autographed by each of the four Silhouettes!  Sam lives in Philadelphia now and just turned 90 years old.

COVID-19 UPDATE from the Exchange March 16, 2020

Dear friends --

Following the recommendation from Pa. Governor Wolf, The Exchange has suspended all public operations.  The Gallery will not open until at least the 30th of this month.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have announced guidelines that all events of fifty or more people should not take place for the next eight weeks, and we have postponed all of our planned concerts through the end of April.


We look forward to bringing you some good news whenever we can; keep an eye here and on our Facebook page for further updates.  You may also reach us at [email protected] and 570-317-2596.

For now, we urge you to buy gift cards at your favorite local businesses and buy songs and albums from your favorite musicians: Their cash flows will suffer grievously until the dust settles on this crisis.


We survived a fire in our former home; the current crisis affects the entire world, so our temporary closing means very little. Most importantly, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES AND YOUR FAMILIES, FRIENDS, AND NEIGHBORS.  We all depend on each other, and in hard times more than ever.
