The GreenLeaf Gallery and Gift Shop fulfills a longterm dream of providing quality access to the visual arts in a commercial setting to the Greater Hazleton and Beaver Meadows communities. The Gallery occupies the former St. Mary’s Church in Beaver Meadows. It was the heart of the local community for many of its residents. It was the first Roman Catholic parish established in the region in 1841 and the building moved to the current site in 1891. It’s a beautiful space with ample parking, sweeping gothic windows, an 85 foot steeple, original hardwood floors, and a lovely choir loft that houses our Gift Shop.
We plan to have regular fine arts shows every 2 to 3 months covering media ranging from paintings to ceramics to masks to textile arts! Some pieces will be rotated from our permanent collection, while others will represent participating artists from around the United States and other countries.
Many of the works you can see in the Gallery are available in a variety of sizes and settings, and custom pieces are often available by arrangement. Outside of our regular hours, special showings can be arranged. We are also available for private parties and celebrations.
We hope to offer classes and special tours for youth groups, plus functions for the general community. Contact us for any questions!
