ArtWorks Gallery Moving to New Location

ArtWorks Gallery & Studio (Scranton, PA) is Moving to a New Location (236 Penn Avenue) by September 1st

There are many exciting things happening in the ArtWorks Program in the next few months. ArtWorks will be expanding into a larger building in Scranton, with three times the gallery space. There will be multiple studios for room to grow. The ArtWork’s team is planning a new exclusive pottery studio in Scranton, including a kiln for firing clay works to create one of a kind pottery items. They’re planning new programs, to include print making, silk screening, lynol cuts, digital studio, drawing and painting.

ArtWorks is an alternative to traditional day service. It is a creative environment with an individual-based schedule suited to a person’s needs or skill level. We are looking to integrate community classes and eventually extend the hours of operation. The ArtWorks program is an alternative because it increases professional skill sets in a visual arts environment.

It’s a very exciting time at KCR and we will continue to grow, allowing all individuals with Autism and ID, to have new and diverse opportunities to lead fulfilling lives. Celebrating 55 years of Caring, since 1964.

Views of a Happy Life at Tioga Arts Council

Join us for the opening of Views of a Happy Life: An Exhibition by Christina Capriglione on Friday, August 2, from 5 – 8 pm at Tioga Arts Council, 179 Front Street, Owego.

“In her paintings, Capriglione captures this beauty with a softness of light that brings a sense of peace. You can hear the sound of humming insects and distant birdsong and feel the summer heat upon your skin. We are beckoned to explore, stopping often to listen and look, to sit in the shade, letting the cares and distractions of daily life slip away.” The full review by Ronnie Vuolo is available in this packet and at www.tiogaartscouncil.org.

Let the distractions of daily life slip away and join us on August 2.

Views of a Happy Life will be on display from August 2 – 29, 2019 and be open T., Th. – Sat., 11 am – 4 pm or by appointment.

Views of a Happy Life: An Exhibition by Christine Capriglione By Ronnie Vuolo
We are fortunate, we who live in this beautiful land, surrounded by rolling green hills, farmland, and meandering rivers. In her paintings, Christine Capriglione captures this beauty with a softness oflight that brings a sense of peace. You can hear the sound of humming insects and distant birdsong and feel the summer heat upon your skin. We are beckoned to explore, stopping often to listen and look, to sit in the shade, letting the cares and distractions of daily life slip away.

It is a perfect day. I follow a meandering dirt path through forest and meadow. Rounding a curve, I come upon an ancient maple. Scarred by weather and time, it bears a hand painted sign announcing its status as sentinel of a private drive. I continue on my way, honoring its request for privacy.

I am on another path: this time through a farmer’s field, newly hayed. Golden round bales dot the land as far as the eye can see. Above, blue sky is studded with puffy clouds. I am in no rush and neither are they.

Now I am transported to a hillside estate overlooking a lake. It is the height of summer. Gardens bloom, and a vineyard stretched out before me. I stand beneath the shade of a tree that casts shadows at my feet. Green forested hills rise in the hazy distance beyond the lake. A glass of wine awaits.

On another hazy day, I stand by an old stone jetty on the banks of the Hudson watching distant sails dance with the wind. Waves lap against the shore, cicadas hum, and a breeze brings blessed relief from the heat of the afternoon. Old mansions and farms line these shores, and mountains rise in the distance. There are ghosts here
– railroad barons, revolutionary soldiers, and scores of native Americans have walked this shore, watched these same waters, thought their private thoughts. And now it is my turn.

Even with still-life, the artist blesses us with a sense of contentment and peace: Simple Pleasures. Ripe oranges sit atop a tattered white cloth next to a 30s era jadeite juicer, awaiting their turn. A small vase is filled with homey blooms. It calls to mind a simpler time, when the peace of home was not broken by the call of electronics and the intrusion of the world beyond. I think instantly of my grandmother’s home, and smile.

In Views of a Happy Life, the artist allows us a glimpse of what fills her life, her heart, her spirit. And what can also fill ours.

ArtScene: Wilkes-Barre by Alexandra Isaac

It’s the end of summer, the kids are back to school, and although the leaves are slowly changing, the temperatures are still keeping us warm for a bit longer. Despite the change of season, there are still plenty of things for you and your family to enjoy in the Wyoming Valley.

This August, join actor Anthony Michael Hall at the F.M. Kirby Center for a screening of everyone’s favorite coming-of-age dramedy, The Breakfast Club. After the screening, there will be an interactive discussion and Q&A with Hall. This event will take place on Saturday, August 17 at 7:30 p.m. Anthony Michael Hall’s career has included multiple movies (National Lampoon’s Vacation, Weird Science, Sixteen Candles, Edward Scissorhands) and television programs (USA’s The Dead Zone, cast member of NBC’s Saturday Night Live). The Breakfast Club is known as the “quintessential 1980s film” and is considered as one of the best films of the decade.

For all you Beatles fans, Classic Albums Live presents The Beatles’ Abbey Road on October 4th at 8:00 p.m. Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and recreates them live, on stage. This is a performance you surely don’t want to miss! Tickets are now on sale.

Just in time for Halloween, join Discovery Channel’s Expedition Unknown host, Josh Gates for “An Evening of Ghosts, Monsters and Tales of Adventure!” on October 18th. The event will start at 8:00 p.m. Discovery Channel’s hit-series Expedition Unknown chronicles Gates as he sets out on a global quest to find the truth behind iconic legends and archaeological mysteries. Josh Gates is an avid explorer whose deep-rooted passion for adventure propels him to the farthest corners of the world.

The Sordoni Art Gallery will be hosting the Rust Belt Biennial Exhibition at the end of August. Rust Belt Biennial is a celebration of photography with work realized throughout the Rust Belt Region. Andrew L. Moore will serve as competition juror for the exhibit. The exhibit will run August 27-October 5, 2019.

On October 22nd, the Sordoni Art Gallery will display the exhibit “Two Presidents, One Photographer” – which showcases 56 of Chief Official White House Photographer Pete Souza’s photographs of two presidents from opposite ends of the political spectrum. This exhibit includes Souza’s favorite images of Presidents Obama and Reagan.

The Pauly Friedman Art Gallery will participate in the 10th Health Care Symposium: Arts in Healthcare. Arts in Healthcare is an exhibition of two- and three-dimensional artworks by a diverse group of artists. This exhibition will engage symposium participants and the campus community in reflecting on the benefits of art to the healthcare environment. This exhibition will provide a space for reflection as well as build observational, diagnostic, and empathic skills. The featured speaker for this event will be Houston-based artist Joseph Cohen. The exhibition begins August 23 and runs until October, 2019.

I hope you and your family can attend one or all of these great events over the next couple months!

ArtScene: Tunkhannock by Alice Strauss

A couple nights ago I was asked to write a column about the art scene in Tunkhannock. So I scrambled around to see what would be going on around town from August through October. Here I sit writing this in mid-July when summer seems an endless stream of warm, sunny days with clouds of daisies dotting the roadsides. August, however, hints of cooler weather, warm sweaters and the end of poolside picnics. It also sports all sorts of good things happening to ward off any serious thoughts of the long, cold winter that awaits us on the horizon.

On August 9, 10 & 11, the Kitson Arts Alliance’s North Branch Arts Trail will present its seasonal North Branch Arts Weekend. Art lovers can use the trail’s quarterly arts publication, The NBat Guide, to find their way around the trail using the center-spread map that highlights the stops on the trail.

Also on August 9, Creekside Gardens (Route 29 South) presents Food Truck Friday featuring food (of course) and live music. And speaking of music, Flaxy Morgan Band will perform at the Triton Hose Bazaar on August 1, with dance music and classic rock; Creekside Inn (Route 92 North) has Heads Up Duo on August 10; The Blogg (Tioga Street) will present Flatland Ruckus Duo on August 7 and Farmer and Daughter Duo on the 23rd.

August 4 brings us The Dietrich Theater’s special showing of the 9th annual (and first time to go global) screening of “The Grateful Dead Meet Up at the Movies,” and yes, the Dead are old enough to be considered part of the “art world.” A Gathering of Singer/Songwriters will take place at the Dietrich on August 21, followed by an Open Mic Night on the 23rd with local singer Tom Rogo as the featured guest. The evening is open to performers of all types, from poets to musicians and comedians. “All About Eve” from the National Theatre Company will show at the Dietrich on August 11 and 18, and on September 8, there will be a special preview screening of the upcoming PBS presentation of “Ken Burns’ Country Music.”

Art appreciation can take many forms, of course. The Starlite Rock ‘n’ Roll Car Show will spotlight classic cars and oldies music on Hunter Highway in Tunhannock on August 24, with a rain date of September 7.

Fourth Fridays continue on August 23, and September 27, turning all of Tioga Street into a gallery for browsing in our quaint shops while enjoying a relaxing evening on the town.

On August 20 and October 15, at the Tunkhannock Public Library, little builders and architects can enjoy the “Parent and Me Block Party,” where they can create great things with building blocks. On September 7, the library will present “Lego Adventures”; “Touch a Truck” will be happening at Lazybrook Park on September 21; and Dance Classes at the Dietrich on August 5 and 6 let kids from ages 2-9 explore the world of dance with instructors from the Stage Door Dance Studio.

Decorative painting classes continue at the Dietrich August 16-28, with instructor Theresa Brewer. On August 16, Steve and Amy Colley host “Fine Wine, Fine Art” painting a la Impressionism. Bring your own wine and create a piece inspired by the impressionists. Artists can enjoy “Open Studio/Portfolio Prep Series 5” with Steve Colley on August 6, 13, 20 and 27. This series is open to all with a specific aim toward helping students in preparing a portfolio for college or employment.

Writers’ Group meets Fridays at the Dietrich for all budding authors and poets. Artist Gail Jones will present a Mosaic Art Workshop at the Tunkhannock Public Library from August 12-29. A ten-day program for learning the ins and outs of working with mosaics. Register by August 1, please.

For pottery enthusiasts, check out Steve Colley’s “Series 5 Pottery Workshop” on August 12, 19, 20, 26 and September 9. A little more adventurous? Try “Paint and CBD” at the Prehempt CBD Boutique where you can create your own version of “Lotus and Dragonfly” and sample CBE-infused chocolates, coffees and teas.

You can also “Create a Piece with Elyse” on September 14, at “The Dreams Art Workshop” held at the Kitson Gallery. The Butterfly Release at Creekside Gardens takes place September 8 and 15, with live music, food trucks and the opportunity to learn about building sustainable butterfly habitats. Art appreciation does indeed come in all colors!

On Sunday, August 25, at the Wyoming County Cultural Center at the Dietrich Theater, the Kitson Arts Alliance will open “Trains and Breakers,” an exhibit of the train engine photography of Oren Helbock of Bloomsburg coupled with the coal breaker paintings of Dallas artist Sue Hand. Along with the live exhibit, train photos by Kenny Gantz, the official Steamtown photographer, will roll by on two TV screens. In the all-purpose room, Lego toy designer Megan Rothrock and co-founder at Construct-a-Venture, Jim Foulds, will be making a train engine from Legos! The exhibit runs through November 3.

We must not forget the Wyoming County Fair, going on from August 28-September 2. Music, crafts, food, and fun for the whole family! The Tunkhannock Rotary Club’s Harvest and Wine Festival happens on October 12, and the Fall Fest Craft Fair is at Tunkhannock High School October 26. Looks as if fall has finally arrived in Tunkhannock. And Christmas is only 164 days away!

ArtScene: Montrose by Betty Bryden

The arts thrive here in Montrose – so a visit almost anytime will make your trip worthwhile.

Slanted Art Co-op is a great place to start; you’ll find creations by many local artists. Their artist member Third Thursday event in August will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. Each artist will create a piece in their medium of choice, depicting their thoughts and feelings on that legendary concert. The Woodstock opening reception will be Thursday, August 15th, 5-8pm. Come out and see the varied and inspired work in full Technicolor. The Slanted Art team is excited to announce their new line, Boho, a Woodstock-inspired line of clothing and accessories created by their very own artists – all things denim with vibrant colors. This line launches in August in homage to the momentous concert.

The Hill Country artists continue their ongoing display in the lobby and windows of the Independent newspaper office on Church Street – a stone’s throw from Slanted Art which is located on the corner by the light.

The Lily Pad, though not a typical “art location,” is across the street from the Independent with the most arty clothing to satisfy your carefree colorful self, and the owner makes exquisite and creative floral arrangements to honor every occasion.

A short drive up Public Avenue and a left hand turn at the courthouse takes you to the Pink Arrow Arts Building at 35 Pine Street – a short street with three houses – 35 has a pink door. On the first floor you will find the Butternut Gallery & Second Story Books. This gallery, with a long-standing history of presenting intriguing exhibits, continues with “The Remarkable Among Us” in August (10-24) featuring 15 exceptional women who have led interesting lives in the arts or in the community, written about by 15 writers and photographed by three area photographers. August 31 through September is the traditional fiber exhibit featuring the work of seven fiber artists working in varied ways, and October features the works of art quilter Karen Farmer (Montrose, London) and collage artist Betty Bryden (Montrose) who will be showing works created under the influence of each other’s style.

All these venues are open for Montrose 3rd Friday, a small town celebration with extended evening hours that takes place in downtown Montrose each & every month year-round – music, food trucks, pop-up shops – a fun evening out!

Of course Columbus Day Weekend, October 12, 13 & 14, is the 23rd Artists’ Open House Weekend which highlights the creativity to be found throughout Susquehanna County. This year, 25 artists will be exhibiting at 16 locations in a wide variety of media: photography, drawing, sculpture, painting, found object and paper collage, wood, encaustic, metalsmithing, stone wall building, and quilting – something for everyone. Pack a picnic lunch and come out to enjoy a weekend of art. Brochures are available at many area businesses and at artisttour.com. Monday is demo day, when several artists share their technique with the public.

Visit Montrose! It’s worth your while.
