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.


Our latest project, River Towns Plein Air 2021 is a great example of this.  Plein air painting is a French term for painting in the open air (on location).  For an eight-day period beginning April 12, 2021, artists will paint at locations along both sides of the Susquehanna River.  Families can follow the activity through the group’s Facebook Page and will be encouraged to scout out the artists and observe the creation of art.  The culminating three-day show will be free and open to the public.


Other community art projects have included workshops, an outdoor pop-up art show and most recently the group took on a pet shop window, decorating for the holidays and displaying

pet-inspired art.  We are planning more activities that will bring people to the river towns, helping to bolster 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 through Rivertownes PA USA, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  Donations can be made by credit card or check.  Checks should be made payable to "Rivertownes PA USA" and mailed to:
