Allied Artists of Johnstown and the Garden Club of Johnstown
A joint venture between two organizations was arranged, and after a year in the planning and development stages, the Allied Artists of Johnstown and Garden Club of Johnstown unveiled a unique art show to the region. Seventy seven works of art had been juried into the event, and the Garden Club was tasked to complement specific works with their arrangements. The resulting display was undoubtedly one of the most exquisite shows to have graced the Johnstown area. It exhibited on July 24 – 25, 2015.
The show was highly attended during both days of the event. Even though the live floral arrangements were only able to be displayed for two days, the AAJ works remain on display until September 7th.

Our sincere thanks to the many people who assisted over nearly a year of planning in the coordination process to bring this show together.
The result was something that will be a cherished memory for the Garden Club, Allied Artists, and those many patrons and spectators who supported our efforts by attending the two day event.
