The Redbank Valley now has an art gallery in downtown New Bethlehem. The newly opened Gallery at New Bethlehem Town Center, at 419 Arch Street, is a PA Wilds Cooperative Trading Post located at the midpoint of the Redbank Valley Trail. The Redbank Valley Trail is a 51-mile non-motorized, 4-season trail between Brookville in Jefferson County and connects with the Armstrong Trail near East Brady in Clarion County. It was honored by DCNR as Pennsylvania’s first ever Trail of the Year in 2014. The trail parallels scenic Redbank Creek for 42 miles through mostly natural areas over many bridges and arches, as well as the newly refurbished Climax Tunnel.
The Gallery is on the second floor with 6,000 square feet of ADA accessible space for displays with two conference rooms. There is also studio space available for artisans on the first floor. Works from fifteen artists are currently on display featuring sculpture, photography, painting, pottery, jewelry, wood block, and more. The Gallery is open 10 am to 6 pm on Saturdays, Sundays from 1pm to 5pm, and by appointment. Call 724-664-4754 to schedule a visit.
