Alternative Gallery now open in Allentown
ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A new art gallery is now open in downtown Allentown. The Alternative Gallery says it's not your typical gallery. It's more of an artist owned and operated collective.

More than 50 pieces of art from 12 different artists are on display. Pieces range from paintings, to photos, to illustrations, and even sculpture., and everything is for sale.

Brandon Wunder, co-founder of The Alternative Gallery, says the goal of the gallery is to give control of the art back to the artist and to allow independent artists to control how they sell and display their work.

The gallery is in the Maple Walk of the Holiday Inn off Ninth and Hamilton streets in downtown Allentown.15471676

The gallery is open 24 hours a day.
