Three New Exhibitions Opening in September

Our Fall 2020 York College Galleries series of exhibitions and events offers a range of physical and virtual opportunities to engage with art. Though main campus will be closed to the public, exhibitions at Marketview Arts and online artist lectures will be open to the public. Our event schedule explores urgent issues of climate and racial justice while also reflecting on the turbulence of a half a century ago.

The following exhibitions and online artist talks kick off our Fall series:

Amber Wiesberg: Appell Fellowship Exhibition
September 4 – October 17
3rd Floor, Marketview Arts (open to the public)
Artist Talk/Interview: September 3, 7:00 PM, Zoom

The Appell Arts Fellowship is an 11-month residency program awarded to a graduate of York College’s art program. The Fellowship supports both the Downtown York Arts District and the continued artistic growth of the Fellow. This exhibition, the Fellowship’s culminating experience, attests to the latter.

Through our Lens: I Can’t Breathe

Artist Talk/Interview: September 30, 7:00 PM, Zoom

This exhibition by Washington Winnona Images captures the voices of those often unheard or misunderstood and the solidarity present at the recent Black Lives Matter event held at Continental Square in York, PA as well as the Called to Action events that grew out of the original event.

Social history meets great graphic design. This collection of iconic posters captures the turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s, revealing a complicated range of youthful optimism and discontent from exuberant psychedelic concert posters to works challenging oppressive social structures and the Vietnam War.
