Marietta Art Alive! is a group of artists with a common vision of bringing more art to our lower Susquehanna Valley river town communities to be enjoyed by families and artists alike.


We held our first juried art show "Song for Autumn" at MH Art Gallery this past October.  It was an exceptionally high-quality show by regional artists who each used their medium of choice to interpret the poem by Mary Oliver. The 2022 River Towns Plein Air event was again well received and attended by an enthusiastic audience.  We have exciting plans for 2023 to expand our reach even further to show visitors all we have to offer. Your donations help us improve upon our successes year after year.

River Towns Plein Air 2023 is a work in progress. Our juror for RTPA is nationally-known artist Gary Tucker who will be conducting a 5-day workshop following the event. The workshop is already full and will bring in more people to enjoy the area. We are also partnering this year with Create Columbia! who will be organizing our family Quick Draw event to be held in Columbia. Children will be encouraged to paint alongside registered adults and will be given free art supplies.  

We continue to add more activities each year that bring people to our communities, helping to bolster the local economy and increasing recreational activities of visitors through participation, education, demonstration and exhibition.

If you share in our vision, we hope you’ll consider a donation. All monies are spent on the types of projects mentioned above. Donations can be made to Rivertownes PA USA, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We accept credit cards or checks. Checks should be made payable to "Rivertownes PA USA" and mailed to:
