The Gallery at Penn College is seeking artists for solo exhibitions and residencies for 2019-20 and 2020-21. The 3,000 square foot gallery on the campus of Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA is dedicated to promoting art appreciation through exhibitions of contemporary art.

For the residency series, titled ‘Material Matters: Past, Present, Future,’ we are seeking artists working specifically in materials from Pennsylvania’s history, such as steel, wood, paper, or fiber, as well as current and future materials, such as plastics, glass, or electronics. The five-day residency will include up to three interactive workshops and public programming including a gallery talk.

All proposals must include the following items:

  • 10-15 digital images of work

  • Residency only: provide a letter of intent. Tell us about yourself; describe your work and how it relates to the theme; outline of your preliminary workshop proposal including preliminary costs of supplies; description of any other public programming you would like to offer including costs.
