Juried Exhibit Featured at Susquehanna University Gallery
SELINSGROVE—Susquehanna University’s Lore Degenstein Gallery will hold its autumn exhibition, a juried visual art competition and exhibition, from Oct. 24 through Dec. 11. The opening reception on Oct. 24, from 7 to 9 p.m., will include a gallery talk by Daniel Dallmann, a professor at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University.
