Admissions FAQ's

Gallery Events

Book Talk

In the early nineteenth century, the American commercial marketplace was a chaotic, unregulated environment in which knock-offs and outright frauds thrived. Appearances could be deceiving, and entrepreneurs often relied on their personal reputations to close deals and make sales. Rapid industrialization and expanding trade routes opened new markets with enormous potential, but how could distant merchants convince potential customers, whom they had never met, that they could be trusted? Through wide-ranging visual and textual evidence, including a robust selection of early advertisements, Branding Trust tells the story of how advertising evolved to meet these challenges, tracing the themes of character and class as they intertwined with and influenced graphic design, trademark law, and ideas about ethical business practice in the United States. Author and Misericordia History Professor Jennifer M. Black will give a book talk and signing. Light refreshments served. Free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase.

Women's History Month 2024 Events

Artist-led Pysanky Egg-Decorating Workshop

Friday, March 22, 2-4pm, Pauly Friedman Art Gallery

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we are offering a free egg decorating workshop with local artist Marianne Bump Lurie. Inspired by this Ukranian art form that initially was only practiced by adult women, Lurie will demonstrate basic techniques of applying wax and dye to a hollowed-out egg. In premodern Ukraine, eggs painted in bright colors and intricate patterns were part of life and rebirth rituals. Today pysanky accompany Easter celebrations as well as humanitarian efforts to aid Ukraine in its ongoing resistance against Russian forces.

Support for this workshop was provided through a 2023-24 Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Creative Sector Flex Fund Grant.

Space is limited. To reserve your seat please contact Laine Little, Gallery Director, ArtGallery@misericordia.edu, (570) 674-6250.

Due to limited space, 6 seats will be allocated to students and 6 seats for community. After March 18 all seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
