Main Exhibit Gallery and Art Center celebrates its 25th
A “Celebrating Our Art Community” event will kick off Ligonier’s Main Exhibit Gallery & Art Center’s 25th anniversary, says Mandy Sirofchuck, co-owner with husband Paul Sirofchuck.
The free reception, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 16, will feature more than three dozen local artists in a variety of media.
Guests can meet the artists and enjoy refreshments at the center, located at 301 W. Main St.
All of the art will be for sale, Sirofchuck adds.
“Visitors will see everything from oil paintings, pastels, watercolors, to ceramic art, metal work, metal sculptures, some fiber art, printmaking, woodworking, stained glass and jewelry,” she says.
“It will be pretty much all media, all kinds of 2-D and a variety of 3-D as well. It’s primarily very local (artists) — Latrobe, Ligonier, Greensburg, Natrona Heights, Monroeville, Johnstown areas,” she says. “Since it’s our 25th anniversary, I wanted to make it our community. … A lot of the artists have shown in a variety of venues in the area.”
The Sirofchucks opened the gallery in 1994, and expanded in 2014 to include lower-level classroom space.
The gallery has always been a showcase for established and emerging artists from all over the United States, exhibiting and selling their work.
It also offers workshops in glass, clay, painting and wheel pottery, helping art “spectators” become “art creators,” according to its website.
The gallery also offers a summer art camp for children.
Artwork will remain on display through Sept. 8.
