The 11th Annual Scenes of the Schuylkill River Heritage Area Art Show will be held from September 16 through October 17, 2014. It features 82 original works that celebrate the beauty of the Schuylkill River region through art. It is held in partnership with Montgomery County Community College at the West Campus Gallery in Pottstown. This year we were pleased to have as juror Lisa Tremper Hanover, Director & CEO, of the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown. She selected 82 works to remain in the show, and chose three winning entries and two honorable mentions from 112 works submitted. A staff choice award was also determined by the Schuylkill River Heritage Area staff for a work that represented the Schuylkill River, in honor of the Schuylkill as PA's 2014 River of the Year.
