Art Neighbors:

Latrobe Art Center / Greensburg Art Center

Joint Exhibition

 

Once upon a time in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, there were two neighboring art centers. Only 10 miles away from each other, these art centers, independently of each other, became hubs of creativity—places for local artists to share their art with the surrounding communities, teach artistic techniques to artists of all skill levels, and educate children and adults alike on appreciation of the visual arts. Both embraced roles as cultural and educational nonprofits dedicated to the visual arts, and both flourished.

One day these neighboring art centers realized that they had many of the same exhibiting artists and many of the same goals—with the biggest goal being to create a community of artists. So, Latrobe Art Center and Greensburg Art Center decided, in the year 2019, to join their artist communities together for one great big exhibition of their exhibiting artists every year.

Each art center will take turns hosting this annual exhibition. The 2019 exhibition will be hosted by Latrobe Art Center, while the 2020 exhibition will be held at Greensburg Art Center.  Artists from both art centers will have the chance to showcase their work—possibly to a new audience who is not familiar with their work!

So please be our neighbor for the first annual Art Neighbors: Latrobe Art Center / Greensburg Art Center Joint Exhibition!
