• Bethlehem Palette Club Exhibit​The Eagle Nest Gallery is pleased to announce the May exhibit featuring portrait work by select Bethlehem Palette Club artists. Artwork was created in Portrait Studio, a subdivision of the Bethlehem Palette Club focusing on portrait artwork.

    Portrait studio is like a surgeons skills lab.   No matter what subjects you normally work with, portrait will sharpen your eye. Live models breath, blink, frown, and have micro expressions. The focus that an artist needs to actually see this, enables that artist to move beyond what that person THINKS is a face or nose, or hand, into what that shape really truly is. There is also some deeper sort of human interaction that transcends casual daily living. Where else are you going to be able to truly study another person's face that closely, and completely? After you can go back to landscape or still life etc, but you'll find a depth of 'seeing' that is more then before.

    There will be meet-the-artist a reception on Friday, May 12, 2024, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The public is invited to attend this event. The exhibit will also be open to the public throughout the High School Arts Festival on May 8, 9, and 10 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.

    The Bethlehem Palette Club exhibit will be on display from May 3 through June 5, 2024. Eagle Nest Gallery hours are from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday through Friday and during cultural events. Please reach out to the gallery coordinator to make an appointment for viewing during school hours. The Eagle Nest Gallery is located in Nazareth Area High School on East Center Street.
