The Henry Gallery at Penn State Great Valley

The Henry Gallery strives to be a cultural asset for Penn State Great Valley and the local community. The Henry Gallery’s exhibition program focuses on group shows of local and regional arts and artists and the community organizations that support and encourage their work.

The gallery opened in 2010 and is named for Joseph and Marilyn Henry who made a major gift to expand its facilities, art acquisitions, and programs in January 2013.

Located on the second floor of the Penn State Great Valley Conference Center, the Henry Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and when the campus is open for evening events.

and as they experiment, they are willing to make the mistakes that will lead them to answers. Materials and technology are their tools. And they seek affirmation for their results.

The exhibit features select works by: Ruth Ansel    Sue Benarcik    Gina Bosworth  Gynnie Moody    Mary Targonski     Valetta
