Chen Arts Group Show Announcement

Allentown Chen Arts Group presents:

MOMENTUM – Expanding the Dialog of Contemporary Art in Allentown

Following a successful premier art show, the Allentown Chen Arts Group is announcing its second art happening and gallery show at the Butz Corporate Center, 840 W. Hamilton Street, featuring even more original artwork by area artists.

Chen Arts Group held its inaugural show in October, generating buzz that is bringing the art community downtown for its second show, aptly titled Momentum.

This second show will run for an entire week and features photography, paintings, sculpture, glass pieces and more. Drumming, dancing and an interactive video display will be part of the event. Artwork will be offered for sale and contributing artists will be on hand to discuss their work with the public.

The opening is scheduled for 5-9 p.m. Friday, December 12. The show continues Sat. Dec. 13, from 12-5 p.m. The gallery will remain open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Closing is set for Saturday, Dec. 20 from 5-9 p.m. Light refreshment and live entertainment will be offered during weekend hours.

The show is curated by Kiki Nienaber.

The Chen Arts Group is Allentown's newest independent community arts movement. The group formed in early 2008 and adopted the House of Chen, a Chinese restaurant in downtown Allentown, as a regular meeting place and namesake. The group strives to promote the work of artists living and working in and around the city and use the arts as a springboard to strengthen the Queen City.

The Chen Arts Group thanks the Butz family for its generous support of this show and the arts in Allentown, as well as the City of Allentown and the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce.

I really like the poster.

Is Mike Molovinsky going to show any of his photography?
