ARTIST RECEPTION: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2022 (6 — 9 pm)
COFFEE TALK: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2022 (1 – 5 pm)
Get your bell-bottom jeans ready! The Hazleton Art League proudly presents what will surely turn out to be one of the most memorable Hazleton art events of the year! After a successful run at the Antoine Dutot Museum & Art Gallery in Delaware Water Gap, PA., Jack and Jill Swersie’s retro PEACE & LOVE exhibition will be presented at the Hayden Family Center for the Arts in the heart of downtown Hazleton. Just in time for Hazleton’s 8 th Annual “Peace, Love and Chalk” competition, this month-long exhibit will feature artwork defining the upbeat idealism of the 1960s and early-1970s. Joining Pocono artists Jack and Jill Swersie will be artists Courtney Lauren Natt, Lois Silver Zini, Reenie Kernaghan, Elizabeth Tilley, Laurinda Faye, Sylvia Thompson, and Hazleton’s very own Mark Charles Rooney, Arthur Dworin, Jeremy Petrachonis, Marcy Lanza Oldham, and Danielle Beury.
Opening reception is Friday, September 2, 2022 (6-9 pm). The show will run through the 25th of September. Coffee Talk will be on Sunday, September 4, 2022 (1 pm – 5 pm). The “Peace, Love, Chalk” competition is on September 11 and, of course, the gallery will be open for that event.
1960s/70s attire is suggested for those who attend the opening reception on September 2nd. Food and wine will be served. The Hazleton Art League’s Hayden Family Center for the Arts is located at 31 W. Broad St. in Hazleton, PA.
