Mission: The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art exists to preserve, exhibit, and advance American art and is dedicated to making its programs and activities accessible to the people of the southwestern area of central Pennsylvania.

The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Altoona is pleased to announce its collaboration with State Representative Jim Gregory. The Museum will be installing 10 pieces of Sue Severson’s artwork from SAMA’s permanent collection in Gregory’s office on Allegheny Street in Hollidaysburg on May 1, 2019. The people depicted in Severson’s pieces represent the constituents served by Gregory. The public is welcome and encouraged to view this exhibit.

“The Museum is honored to be hanging these works in Representative Gregory’s offices. Sue Severson was so immersed in our city’s culture. These pieces constitute the importance she held in the interaction of people and the places they lived,” stated Barbara Hollander, Altoona Site-Coordinator.
Sue Severson received a B.F.A from City College of New York. She received her M.F.A from Brooklyn College, having studied at Brooklyn Museum Art School and Art Students League. She and her husband, Donald Severson, decided to relocate to Altoona from New York in 1998. Severson, originally from New York City, was an Altoona resident for much of her adult life. Her cityscapes are full of active, vital people of all ages and backgrounds. During their life-time, the Seversons made a great impact in our art community. “Although deceased, Sue will always be remembered as a beloved and talented artist and a caring and giving person,” reflects Hollander.

Severson’s work appeared in many solo-exhibitions and group shows. Her work is held in more than 100 private and public collections across the country. She was an active member of Art in Common and was inducted into the Blair County Arts Hall of Fame in October 2015.
