New Visions Studio & Gallery is moving to downtown Scranton! New Visions opened last September in Taylor, renovating an old car wash bay into a unique gallery and studios set-up. They recently decided to move to downtown Scranton, to participate in First Friday and to be closer and more easily accessible to its patrons. Their Grand re-Opening is scheduled for May 6th 6-9pm at their new location at 201 Vine Street, at the north corner of downtown. This site was once the Penn Furniture Warehouse, whose painted name will remain on the building. New Visions made its staple in an industrial area is now moving onto a more open and inviting ware-house environment. Staff Melanie Boisseau and Adam Weitzenkorn are excited for the move and are ready to serve the art community better from this location. Everything that artists love about New Visions will remain the same: monthly art exhibit with receptions, monthly music shows, drawing and painting classes and a community darkroom for classes and membership use. They hope to offer new and exciting things as well, like open-mic nights, poetry readings, comedy shows and performances.
New Visions currently has an Open Call for Art, a juried group exhibit scheduled for the month of June. Any artist working in any medium is encouraged to apply. The deadline for submissions is May 8th. This exhibit is titled “Family Ties”, and is based on artwork dealing with family and father-figures (in honor of Father’s Day). Interpretation of this subject matter is open to artists how they see fit.
