Your look ahead at Valley Arts

Penn State LV exhibit: A reception 5 - 7 p.m. Jan. 29, which is free and open to the public, will be held for "Artists View Our World," which continues through April 15, The Ronald K. De Long Gallery at Penn State Lehigh Valley, 2809 Saucon Valley Road, Center Valley, Upper Saucon Township. The exhibition features the work of Khalil Allaik, Douglas Ihlenfeld and Susan Barnes, including "Inventing Ground" (oil and paper on canvas), above, by Barnes. "Artists create worlds within worlds. We are excited to feature these three artists who produce work inspired by the physical world in which they live: the earth, the clouds, the sea and the stars," says Ann Lalik, gallery director and arts coordinator at Penn State Lehigh Valley. "Each artist in the exhibition uses different materials in their creative process to draw conceptual conclusions and apply their own unique cultural perspective." Gallery hours are 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Thursday, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Saturday. Information:


Rotunda exhibit: An opening reception, which is free and open to the public, will be held 2 - 4 p.m. Feb. 1 for the Jeffrey M. Green solo exhibition, which continues through Feb. 23, Rotunda Gallery, City Hall, 10 E. Church St., Bethlehem. Green's work, including "How Now" (16 x 20 in., colored pencil), above, has focused on realism using the medium of colored pencil for more than 20 years. "Wherever I go I find a great deal of curiosity about colored pencils, both as a medium and in its relation to the art I create," says the 50-year-old self-taught Pen Argyl artist. "People express surprise and enjoyment. It generates a good deal of interest and excitement." The exhibition is sponsored by the Bethlehem Fine Arts Commission, through its Rotunda Committee. The Rotunda is open 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.
