Alan Rauch, fine artist Instructor.

Painting classes at Penn Highlands Community College Embrace the studies of  Impressionism, nearly abstract, almost  realism, conceptual, bold brush strokes, fast, loose painting, how to create  textural,  layered surfaces, and designing with values,  translating values to color,  the proper uses of color,  turning off the brain, turning on the self. Have fun being an artist.

Historical Society, Laurel Arts to feature fiber arts as they explore and exhibit "Common Threads"
August 21 through September 23, 2017

                 Laurel Arts is partnering with the Somerset Historical Society to host a special series of events showcasing Fiber Arts, exclusively! Common Threads will celebrate, educate, explore, and exhibit the wide variety of domestic, historical and contemporary fiber arts and the artists who make them throughout the Spring and Summer of 2017.

                 A symposium-style event is planned for Saturday, April 22, 2017. Fiber artists will demonstrate, and sell their products at Somerset Historical Center. The public is  invited to meet the artisans and learn about their unique art-making processes, including hands-on-activities. Featured will be keynote speaker, Melinda Zonger, of the National Museum of the American Coverlet. The Somerset Historical Center will also present a historical flax-scutching demonstration. Act 48 credits will be available to PA. Art Educators for this event. Call Laurel Arts (814-443-2433) to reserve a box lunch and admission ticket. 

                 During a Makers Market July 8 and 9 (part of Somerfest 2017), fiber artists will be invited to showcase and sell their work under the large tent..  More information and vendor applications are available at or by calling the arts center.        
The culminating fibers event will be a juried exhibition, August 21 through September 23, 2017. Fiber artists are encouraged to submit work to Laurel Arts from Thursday, August 10 through Saturday, August 12, 2017. The opening reception for the Common Threads exhibition at the Phillip Dressler Center for the Arts (home of Laurel Arts) will be Friday, August 25, 6-8 p.m.
