"Going Green"

Going Green exhibition, Exchange Gallery, Bloomsburg PA

Green is the color of new beginnings, Springtime, and Earth Day.  We associate it with luck, prosperity, and hope.  We also associate it with greed, jealousy, and illness.  Additionally, green can mean eco-friendly or energy efficient.  The Exchange invited artists to submit work featuring the color and/or the concept of “green” -- all artists of all ages and levels of experience encouraged and all media accepted, 2D and 3D, with only one rule: The art had to fit through the front door.

More than 40 artists from seven central-Pennsylvania counties responded, bringing in almost 90 pieces; media range from painting and photography to pit-fired ceramics and mixed media including mouse skeletons.  We'll have photos of all of the work here soon.

The show runs Monday, April 3rd, through Friday, May 5th

"Six Characters in Search of an Artist"

Six Characters in Search of an Artist, Exchange Gallery, Bloomsburg PA

What if the subject of the art told the artist what to create?

Where's the line between artist and art?  Or is there a line?

What's "real" and what's "illusion"?

The Exchange invited artists to create and submit artwork exploring these questions.  We received 50 pieces by 27 artists from seven central-Pennsylvania counties.

The exhibit theme is inspired by the play “Six Characters In Search Of An Author” by Luigi Pirandello, appearing in a new adaptation in a co-production by the Bloomsburg University Players and the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble at the Alvina Krause Theatre, 221 Center Street in Bloomsburg, opening Thursday, February 23rd, and running through Sunday, March 12.  For more information, visit

The Gallery exhibition runs February 6th through March 3rd.

Dreams Door Banner 2022-12-14.jpg

The visual arts make a wonderful medium for capturing the memories of dreams, which we often find elusive and hard to describe.  Several art movements have used dreams as a source of inspiration, including Symbolism, Romanticism, Surrealism, and some styles of Contemporary Art.  The Exchange asked for artwork on the subject of dreams -- daydreams, aspirational dreams, nightmares, or other visions -- with all media accepted, and as always from ALL artists of all ages and levels of experience.  We received 93 pieces by 50 artists from eight central-Pennsylvania counties.

In association with the show, we will host another of our Storytelling events at the Gallery, on Tuesday, January 31st; please get in touch if you would like to tell one!

The show runs January 9th through February 3rd.
