Contemporary arts + culture

The Woskob Family Gallery features a running series of exhibits and programs by local and visit artists. A highlight is the annual Woskob Wall project; the gallery invites a different contemporary artist each year to fabricate and install a new, site-specific installation for its signature 22’ high, 30’ long curving wall.

Recent Wall artists include Rachel Hayes, a nationally recognized artist who creates fabric structures that vibrantly explore painting processes, quilt making, architectural space, light, and shadow; and Keith Lemley, who received his BFA from Penn State in 2005 and his MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 2010, and in the past twelve years, has mounted more than twenty solo exhibitions at prominent national and international venues, including Mixed Greens (NYC); 1708 Gallery (Richmond, VA); The Sculpture Center (Cleveland, OH); Favreau (Montreal, Canada); and Summerhall (Edinburgh, United Kingdom). Hayes’ work, Syzygy, is installed through October 2020. Lemley’s, A Theory of Everything, is featured in the video on this page.
