Nativity Scenes At Art Works from Around the World

Art Works in Johnstown is currently featuring our exhibit called Wonderful Whimsy and in addition is now housing 6 gorgeous nativity scenes from area churches that have closed in Johnstown. The six nativities are virtually from 6 different ethnic backgrounds and show the diversity of art, spirituality and the beauty that must have been found in these churches. Without losing our cultural heritage, these nativities show everything from the art of Croatia to Irish works....the trees on display also show typical decorations from each nationality.

Entry for this exhibit is free and a must see for anyone who is interested in helping to preserve the history of Johnstown. The stunning colors, shapes and designs of these works is just beautiful. These will be on display until January 6th and hopefully will be a yearly tradition at Art Works.
