The Susquehanna Art Society was formed in 1979 “to promote the advancement and enjoyment of the visual arts within the Central PA area.” Its first show, displayed at Susquehanna University in 1980, featured works by 30 artists hailing from a 40-mile radius in the valley. Today, the society is open to all Pennsylvania artists, and its mission is to “provide artists in the Central Susquehanna Valley, Pennsylvania, a common meeting ground, and…to increase awareness of the visual arts of painting, graphics, sculpture, photography, and other contemporary and traditional fine art mediums.”
Art exhibits at Packwood House Museum are always open to the public without charge. The Kelly Gallery is in the Museum’s Tour Center at 15 North Water Street in Lewisburg. Due to ongoing issues with the pandemic, the historic house museum will not open for tours at this time. Masks, social distancing, hand sanitizing, and crowd limits will be enforced in the gallery and gift shop. For more information on the museum and its programs and exhibits, please call 570-524-0323.
