Wilkes University Alumni Exhibition: Celebrating the Blue & Gold Opening Reception

June 21 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

Join us for the opening reception of Wilkes University Alumni Exhibition: Celebrating the Blue & Gold on Friday, June 21 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. This exhibition features works of art by Wilkes University alumni spanning 52 years of creative expression. This exhibition was juried by Ryan Ward, Curator of the Maslow Collection in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and the Owner/ Director of The Ruffed Grouse Gallery in Narrowsburg, New York.
The local AIDS Memorial Quilt will also be on display at the gallery.
About the Quilt
The Quilt was handmade in 2009 by members of the Northeast Regional AIDS Coalition, chaired by Melissa Davis, formerly of the United Way of Wyoming Valley. Volunteers from multiple agencies who provide HIV/AIDS testing, treatment, and case management as well as family members of those memorialized gathered weekly at the American Red Cross building to create the quilt. In less than two months, the project was completed and displayed for World AIDS Day at Luzerne County Community College.
Light refreshments with wine/beer bar. Free and open to the public.
