Jenn Johnson chosen as First Friday curator

Local graphic designer Jenn Johnson will serve as the curator for the First Friday committee of the Lycoming County Celebrates the Arts Alliance. The current focus of the First Friday committee’s curator is to encourage more fine art and youth art education activities.

The committee’s focus on youth art education activities will be developed in partnership with local nonprofit organizations.

The committee is seeking to showcase fine art such as painting, drawing, watercolor, collage, drawing, photography, mixed media, new media and sculpture. Artists in these media can email to join the committee’s database.

The shows, which will begin in September, are open to all artists and will be juried for prizes and indoor exhibition opportunities. The first shows will be open to all media, and the committee hopes to eventually hold juried shows dedicated to each individual type of medium.

There is no entrance fee. Cash prizes will be awarded.
