Huntingdon County Arts Council: Flux exhbit. Haven Tucker’s current art practice, as well as he himself, exists in a state of flux, and as such defining what he does as an artist is complicated. He is very interested in the relationship that materiality and the environment have, and the interconnections between our social understandings of materials and the way we segregate and compartmentalize materials into resources. By defining something as a resource we establish it as valuable. Haven finds that the way value is assigned to materials to be especially interesting and in his art he attempts to question the true value of a resource or object through juxtaposition with its source material.
A.C. Darby Studio, located at 417 Penn Street in Huntingdon is hosting a game night.
Gage Mansion is having live music with Dylan Miller in the gazebo on the lawn.
