Check out more than two decades of exhibitions that have come to the Lore Degenstein Gallery.
We present work by both professional and student artists in five yearly exhibitions, all of which are free and open to the public.
Our annual national juried Figurative Drawing and Painting Competition holds a prominent place in the exhibition schedule and has been instrumental in building our permanent collection of contemporary figurative art. We are now accepting submissions to our Seventh Annual Figurative Drawing and and Painting Competition.
Traveling exhibitions are hosted from time to time, and we also periodically exhibit items from our extensive French poster collection.
The gallery is open from 11-4 p.m. when classes are in session. It is wheelchair accessible. Please call 570-372-4059 for an appointment when classes are not in session.
Rewriting the Streets: The International Language of Stickers
Sept. 5 to Oct. 11, 2015
Opening reception Saturday, Sept. 5, 2015, 7 - 9 p.m.
In the last 20 years, street art has evolved dramatically from the aerosol and painted mural graffiti that peppered subway stations, back alleys, and train yards. Street art stickers have emerged as a vehicle for self-expression and as an effective way to engage passersby. Incorporating the finest examples from two collectors, Catherine Tedford in the United States and Oliver Baudach in Germany, this traveling exhibition includes over 800 original, unused stickers grouped by artists, themes, dates, and geographic locations.
