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. The gallery is closed during academic breaks.
The Lycoming College Juried Senior Show is the culmination of the thesis project for all seniors with a major in studio art. All studio art majors are required to produce a cohesive body of professional work, and must be chosen to exhibit in the senior show by an outside juror in order to graduate. The Juror for the 2017 Senior Show was Wendel White, Distinguished Professor of Art at Stockton University. His work has received numerous awards and fellowships including a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Photography, three artist fellowships from the New Jersey State Council for the Arts, a photography grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, and a New Works Photography Fellowship from En Foco Inc.
Just as our physical bodies cast shadows that define us as we pass through light, our thoughts cast shadows of who we are. Three collections make up a body of work that touches on depression and self harm, defining moments, and suppressed feelings. Conceptual and self-portraits are combined with historic photographic processes to explore the causes, manifestations and coping methods that come out of our darkest moments and deepest secrets.
