Two new art shows will premier Dec. 4 at the Lycoming College Art Gallery, located at 25 West Fourth Street. An artists’ reception will be held that evening from 5 to 9 p.m. with a gallery talk about both exhibits at 5:30 p.m. The shows and reception are free and open to the public.

One show is a national juried exhibition titled “Waging Life,” which runs through Feb. 19. The artwork explores and challenges definitions of the working class based on individual views and experiences of people from various racial, socio-economic, generational and geographical areas. The pieces depict the contract between the happiness found in life and among family that many people experience and disappointment from falling short of the gilded concept of the American dream by failing to reach career and life goals.

The show is the college’s first national juried exhibition and features thirteen artists from as far away as the West Coast including: Harry Longstreet, Jesse Hazel, Elsie Hill, Mark Zimmerman, Dan Rule, Jeremy Kiracofe, Lino Azevedo, Ann Mansolino, Brian Gaither, Daniel Johnson, Aaron Turner, Ashley Hoffman, Susan Smith. The show is juried by Lycoming College’s Contemporary Curatorial Methods class, taught by assistant professor Seth Goodman.

The Art Faculty Show, which runs through Jan. 9, features new works from Lycoming College art faculty members: professor Lynn Estomin, associate professor Howard Tran, assistant professor Seth Goodman, assistant professor Ceaphas Stubbs, and adjunct faculty members: David Burke, Antonia Crook, Jeremiah Johnson, Lawrence Miller, Katherine Sterngold and Andrea McDonough Varner.

The Lycoming College Art Gallery, located at 25 W. Fourth Street in Williamsport, is open Wednesday-Friday, 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. For more information about hours during the holiday break, please visit the Lycoming College Art Gallery webpage at https://www.lycoming.edu/art/gallery.html or send an email to dirocco@lycoming.edu.
