About the Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery
The Gallery is an intimate exhibition space located on the first floor of the Library. With approximately forty running feet, the gallery shows both 2D and 3D work by artists with ties to the region. Once every year, the Gallery partners with the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts to exhibit works by artists from farther afield, in the Images exhibition.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery is closed to make room for patron reserves.
The exhibitions continue here virtually.
