Thanks for supporting the Sordoni Art Gallery as we celebrate our milestone year!
After the devastating flood that impacted the Wyoming Valley in June 1972, Margaret “Barney” Sordoni (1915-1989) and her son, Andrew J. Sordoni, III worked alongside Dr. Eugene Farley, the first president of Wilkes College, to create a unique resource for the college and community. Since 1973, the Sordoni Art Gallery has continuously played an integral role in bringing high-caliber art and artists to the Wilkes campus and greater Northeast Pennsylvania community.
From its opening exhibition of Wilkes-Barre native George Catlin on River Street to its current location on South Main Street, the gallery has been a constant in the ever-changing landscape of downtown Wilkes-Barre. As a campus and community resource, the Sordoni Art Gallery prides itself on its quality exhibitions, cross-disciplinary programming free all-ages lectures, events and workshops.
From longtime patrons to first-time visitors, there is much to celebrate at the Sordoni Art Gallery, celebrating 50 years of art and culture. To learn more, click here!
