SoVA Alums part of The Decade Show at HUB Robeson Gallery

The HUB Robeson Gallery at Penn State is hosting The Decade Show, a State College Area School District Alumni Exhibition, featuring 1982-2012 alumni art.  While the event is centered on the theme of State College Area High School alums, many participants are SovA alums as well.  This event is one of three initiatives intended to raise awareness of the Alla Príma Endowment Fund, created to build enrichment programs to provide additional opportunities for local art students. The show opened Friday, September 28, and will run through November 18, 2012.  A reception for the exhibition will be held October 12 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Robeson Gallery. The Alla Príma Fund was created to assist State College area students and faculty in their pursuit of teaching, creating, and understanding the visual arts. The Fund supports the sequential program of art courses in Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Crafts, Film, Design, Photography, Art History, Studio Techniques, and Portfolio Development as offered at all grade levels throughout the school district. This fund will be endowed with the Centre County Community Foundation (http://centrecountycf.org/). Please consider supporting this art endowment by donating a piece of art to our inaugural auction. All donations will be tax-deductible. The Alla Príma Auction will be held at the Elks Country Club on November 10, 2012 from 7-11pm. A preview of the Art Works will be on display at the ION Modern Gallery in Downtown State College (Calder Way) from October 29-November 8, 2012. This Auction runs in conjunction with the Decade 3 exhibition at the HUB Gallery on the PSU Campus as well as the “State of Film” festival at the State Theatre. The Hub Roberson Gallery is located in 241 HUB-Robeson Center.  Contact 814.865.2563 for gallery inquiries.  The Gallery is free and open to the public.
