2018 PA Route 6 Artisan Trail Exhibit

The 2018 PA Route 6 Artisan Trail Traveling Exhibit will be premiered at Meadville Fine Arts on Friday, March 30. The Exhibit will showcase prints and photographs from artists along the historic highway. The exhibit will open at 10 a.m. with a ribbon cutting.

During the kick-off event, a special throw that depicts scenes from all 11 counties across Route 6 will be unveiled. The Photo Throw is the handiwork of fabric artist Nancy Asmus of Meadville, who has created similar throws for Conneaut Lake Park and Allegheny College. At 11 a.m., Asmus will talk about her creation and the inspiration behind the work.

This event is part of the Fifth Friday Celebrations in all of the Pennsylvania designated heritage area and it also signifies the start of Artisan Trail Month. Each April, the PA Route 6 Alliance honors its talented artisan members. This year’s commemorative poster and postcard highlight some of the performing art venues across the Northern Tier.

The PA Route 6 Artisan Trail Travelling Exhibit will remain at Meadville Fine Arts for the month of April and will then move across PA Route 6 to the east. A schedule for the exhibit will be updated on the PA Route 6 Artisan Trail (www.paroute6.com/artisan–trail).
