Did you know the U.S. government hired thousands of artists in the 1930s & 40s to help the nation recover from the Great Depression? Hundreds of Works Progress Administration (WPA) poster artists created millions of pieces that called attention to public programs, shared values and activities that celebrated everyday American culture. 80 years later, their strong messages and striking beauty still remind us of the power and potential of our democracy. Join Peters Valley in celebrating this timeless legacy in Spring 2017.
Gallery Talk is at 5:30pm on April 8th. This exhibit will be on display at the Peters Valley Gallery from April 8 – May 21, 2017. The Gallery is open Thursday – Sunday 10:00am – 5:00pm.

The Gallery is open year-round; it has a retail gallery on the first floor and an exhibition gallery on the second floor. The last weekend in September of every year, Peters Valley hosts a craft fair at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in New Jersey.
