The Bethlehem Palette Club brings the outdoors into The Baum School of Art


The Baum School of Art hosts the Bethlehem Palette Club’s Plein Air Exhibition through Feb. 4, with a reception Jan. 19.

“En Plein Air” is a French phrase that means “in the open air.” This collection of work was painted by club members who travel to different locations in the Lehigh Valley, painting the scenery that surrounds them.

The Bethlehem Palette Club was established in 1947 to stimulate local and public interest in the fine arts and artists. The Palette Club provides year round opportunities for its members to exhibit their art, while learning from, networking, and creating with other artists.

The Palette Club has exhibitions throughout the year across the Lehigh Valley. Those interested in joining the Bethlehem Palette Club may visit

Visit The Baum School of Art, 510 Linden St., Allentown, for the Artist Reception, from 6 to 8 p.m. Third Thursday, Jan. 19. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

The exhibition coincides with “Of Portraiture and Polio; A Tribute Exhibition in Memory of David Emerson Baum.” This exhibition is held in the David E. Rodale Gallery through Feb. 4. It features portraits of David Baum painted by his grandfather, and school’s founder, Walter Emerson Baum.
