The State Theatre Center for the Arts will be hosting an exhibit of works by members of the Arts Community of Easton in the Brown Daub Gallery from September 29th 2012 through November 5th, 2012. The ACE Annual Group Show highlights the work of ACE members whose works encompass painting, photography, fiber, jewelry and mixed media. Work by the ACE members incorporates traditional genre painting as well as modern and abstract styles and is an exquisite snapshot of the talent and diversity of the arts in Easton and surrounding areas. This year's show juror is Janice Lipzin, Director of Visual Arts and Education at ArtsQuest, Bethlehem, PA. A well-known photographer, Janice Lipzin’s own work will be on display at the Lehigh University Art Galleries along with three other photographers beginning October 31, 2012.
Please join us at the opening reception for this wonderful exhibit on Saturday, September 29th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the public is invited. Awards will be presented at 6:15 p.m. The Brown Daub Gallery is open 90 minutes prior to most main stage State Theatre performances and is located on the corner of 5th & Northampton streets.
