The Althouse Collection was established by the late Thomas and Charlotte Althouse of Bucks County, PA, during their travels and residence in Mexico in the 1950s and 1970s. The collection was later passed on to their son and daughter-in-law Stephen and Jody Althouse of Centre County.

David is passionately fond of outdoor activities such as hiking and rock climbing, which go along with his long-time enjoyment of photography. In his images, he loves to explore shapes and colors in nature and man-made objects. He is drawn by the color range and in variation from crisp details to color washes in the out of focus areas.

Manya Goldstein

Boho Dancers
These figures are generally thought to be the Boho Dancers of the Proto-rococo-loco period. The Dance is held at the change of each season to help maintain the community equilibrium in vulnerable times.

Artist Manya Goldstein uses recycled materials to construct modern artifacts and "bubbe meises". Her art "offers a wry yet tender insight into the condition of being human". Goldstein combines her quirky sense of humor and surreal sensibility with a refined sense of design and color.
