First Friday November Highlights

Published: October 30, 2018

We have over 20 artists, musicians, and venues participating in First Friday November! Here are a few highlights for Friday:

Artworks Gallery & Studio

Please join us for an opening reception of two Keystone College Alumni, Tristan Hatfield and Ryan Maraquin, who are excited to exhibit works side by side at ArtWorks Gallery & Studio.
Hatfield, a Pennsylvania native, works in visual media and uses drawings, digital, painting and sculpting to convey his ideas and visions. This collection is an observation of life’s psychology and its relationship to the world and universe.
Maraquin, a ceramicist from the Poconos, is proud to be working with clay for over a third of his life. He is currently employed at a local pottery studio MudWorks located in the Poconos


Scranton Cultural Center

The Black Scranton Project is pleased to announce the launch of a new art venture with a pop-up show. This debut art exhibition will feature the works of emerging local Artists of Color among whom are talented contemporary painters, mixed media, and digital artists. Shoutout: Black Art Exhibition will take place at 6:00pm at the Scranton Cultural Center. The Shoutout continues at 9:00pm with a reception complete with a live musical performance at POSH at the Scranton Club.


The Ritz Theater & Performing Arts Center

You won’t want to miss the works of artist GENEVIEVE KIRBY, “Details in the Fabric” at The Black Box Cafe. Light refreshments and wine will be offered while you meet the artist.
“Getting outside is good for the soul. Through my artwork, I try to bring the outside in. I want my creations to look like they could have lived or grown somewhere. Living with beautiful objects that pay tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down and helps us reconnect with nature. I focus on the details and colors seen in nature while bringing a sense of playfulness to my pieces as well”.





Also, the Scranton Police and Fire Departments will be collecting new and gently used coats for school children in need at the Hilton Downtown Scranton during First Friday.
