CREATIVE ALLIANCE

Uniontown Art Club - Valley Art Club

Members Exhibition

June 3 - September 3, 2017

The Frank L. Melega Art Museum is an equal opportunity provider.

     Members of the Uniontown Art Club have joined forces with the Valley Art Club to create the newest show at the Frank L. Melega Art Museum titled “Creative Alliance”. Artworks will include a variety of styles and media, paintings, drawings, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and more.

The exhibition illustrates that Southwestern Pennsylvania’s growing art scene is not only in Pittsburgh, but also in the surrounding communities. The Valley Art Club’s roots go back to 1941 and according to the club’s Facebook page their mission is to promote art, cultural appreciation and the beauty of our valley (Monongahela Valley). The Uniontown Art Club was founded in 1927. Club president, Pete Pasqua, offers an open invitation on the UAC website, uniontownartclub.org, for area artists to become members. Both organizations have group shows, sales, special events, and juried exhibitions. “Group shows generate a lot of interest and with these two art clubs I am certain we will have a great opening reception” stated museum director Patrick Daugherty. The Melega Art Museum is geographically located between the two clubs making it the perfect venue for a group show. Many of the artworks will be for sale providing a wide range of prices. A portion of the sale helps support the museum.
