The Artists’ Studio: First Friday Weekend


First Friday Weekend

Extending this month’s First Friday Scranton thrills into Saturday, the Slingluffs’ gallery at 527 Bogart Court in Scranton will introduce The Electric City to the work of Providence, Rhode Island-based artist Jenny Brown (far left and top half of page). Titled Lavender Lily Sea, this new exhibition features selections from her new Blossoming Creatures collection and opens Saturday, March 8 with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Visit for more information (and one of the most deliciously poetic artist’s statements we’ve ever read.)
Among the highlights of Friday night’s art walk are an exhibit of recent works by painter Allison LaRussa (bottom left) at The Vintage Theater on Spruce Street and “Couples Therapy” by Paul Venditti (bottom right) and Kelsey Renninger on The Bog Art Wall at The Bog on Adams Avenue. The exhibit is expected to include floral spray paint works and large-scale, abstract “mountainscapes” and small, intimate watercolors. First Friday Scranton runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Visit for more information.
