PCA&D-York opens expanded exhibition

Friday, October 7th, 2022

Pennsylvania College of Art & Design’s York gallery is excited to be open for York’s October First Friday, Oct. 7, with a new and expanded exhibition. 

Featuring the work of members of the York community, the Community Exhibition features a new series of 4-inch-by-4-inch panels. They join pieces from the exhibition 10×10 which has been on display at the 133 S. Duke St., York, gallery since late summer. PCA&D-York will be open to the public from 5-7 pm for York First Friday. 

These new 4×4 panels were made in a workshop led by artist Claudia Rojas at PCA&D-York’s  September 24 Art Market.  These small panels were created with inspiration from indigenous Latinx artwork by artists of all ages. “We are thrilled to have been able to expand the exhibition to feature more artists in our community sharing their talents and creative vision.”

PCA&D-York, which opened in the Royal Square District earlier this year, has been the site of several initiatives designed to bridge the arts communities of York and Lancaster across the Susquehanna. This summer, the College’s Agency, an in-house creative agency staffed by art and design students, completed branding and design projects for five York-based non-profit organizations. PCA&D-York also was the site of several mind-map ideation sessions with members of the York arts, non-profit, and public service communities. Currently, the site also serves as studio space for Matty Guiliano, PCA&D-York Artist in Residence, and his work with large-scale soft sculpture.
