For the 5th year in a row, the Artists of the Gallows Run will display their artwork in the picturesque Rising Sun Farm barn located at 207 Church Hill Road in Kintnersville, PA, on Saturday, September 28, from 5:00-7:30 PM and Sunday, September 29, from 2:00-5:00 PM.
Sponsored by The Gallows Run Watershed Association, Heritage Conservancy, Nockamixon Open Space Committee and Palisades School District, this year’s theme will be “Observations in a Changing Climate.”
The exhibit is designed to showcase local artists and benefit land conservation and environmental education. Fifty percent of all works sold go to a fund promoting land conservation efforts in Nockamixon Township.
Following the barn show, the exhibit will move upriver to Nurture Nature Center, located at 518 Northampton Street in Easton, PA, from October 5 – November 1. A celebratory reception at Nature Nurture will be held on Thursday, October 10.
