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.

Her passion to explore the landscape is expressed through a unique use of color, texture, and atmosphere, capturing the emotion of a moment with spontaneity and directness.

Manya Goldstein
January 2 - February 23, 2020

"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.

Fine Art Print Gallery - New prints on display each month featuring a range of subject matter from multiple artists.
