The Ronald K. De Long Gallery and the Community Gallery at Penn State Lehigh Valley (PSU-LV) will present the work of more than 80 local students who studied art courses during Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 in its Student Art Exhibition, which runs April15 to May 20. The annual exhibition highlights student works created in visual studies courses at Penn State Lehigh Valley. 

The exhibition features work created in drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture and graphic design courses under the instruction of Greta Bergstresser, Chris Bonner, Liz Flaherty, Christina Galbiati and David Gothard.  

"Despite the pandemic, our students and faculty continued to create art. Some met in the studios and some worked at home, but in the end we managed to work collectively to celebrate our humanity as can only be realized through expressing ourselves with art," said Ann Lalik, gallery director, Penn State Lehigh Valley.
