The Lycoming College Art Gallery and the student-run Lycoming College Downtown Project Space are both located at 25 West Fourth Street in downtown Williamsport. Some exhibitions are housed in both spaces. Our window video gallery is viewable from outside the gallery from 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
Impending Future depicts the uncertainties posed by questions surrounding social, economic, political, and environmental changes that affect not only the future of American society, but the world as well. With the exhibition, the curatorial team at Lycoming College chose works that create a challenging and thoughtful dialogue about different interpretations of the future.
This show is the gallery’s second national juried exhibition and features 26 artists from all over the United States: Heather Ramsdale, Dan Wolf, Andrew Glenn, Sahn Tran, Clare Benson, Bart Vargas, Whitney Sage, Cassandra Klos, Martina Shenal, Pete Burkeet, Zaren Badar, Shona Macdonald, Cynthia Myron, Curtis Bartone, Jane Zich, Niko J. Kallianiotis, Abbey Hepner, Greg McLemore, Jimmy Capalbo, Jeff Schmuki, Kristen Woodward, Jayson Bimber, Coalfather Industries, Phillip Hanson, and Anne Chesnut. The works were selected from more than 300 submissions by nearly 100 artists. The exhibition is juried by Lycoming College’s Curatorial Methods class.
Wendel White’s exhibition includes work from two projects; "Schools for the Colored" and "Red Summer.” Each project is concerned with the remnants of America’s complex and unresolved history of race. “Schools” is a photographic portfolio of the architectural remains of legally segregated sites for the education of African Americans between the late nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries. These structures are located in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The images from “Red Summer” are landscapes made in various locations throughout the U.S. and refers to a series of deadly race riots that swept across the country during 1919. This project depicts locations where significant racial conflict occurred between 1917 and 1923, using Red Summer (1919) as a center-point for an era of significant racial violence in post World War I America.
