About Scenes of the Schuylkill

Scenes of the Schuylkill, hosted by the Schuylkill River Greenways NHA, is an annual juried art show and sale that celebrates the beauty of the Schuylkill River Region through art.


“When people become connected and they have a relationship with the river because they bike there, they fish there, they paint there and do art there; then they fall in love with the river and become ambassadors of the river,”  

- Elaine Schaefer-SRG Executive Director
