October 7, 2011 – Collected during various SERVE (Students Engaged in Reflective Volunteer Experiences) service trips, photographs by King’s College students, staff and alumni reflect the faces and atmospheres of a variety of cultures from around the world.

The photographs will be on display in the third annual “The Faces and Places We SERVE” exhibition held in the Widmann Gallery at King’s College from Monday, Oct. 17, through Oct. 28. Artists will discuss their photographs and service experiences during a gallery talk on Friday, Oct. 21, from 6-8 p.m.

“The exhibit is a testament to the pervasive social justice problems that plague our world,” said Kim Fabbri, coordinator of King’s Scholars in Service Program and organizer of the exhibition. “Our pictures represent not only King’s service across the country, but also the hours our volunteers have spent in communion with the poor and oppressed in Wilkes-Barre.”

Artists and service sites include Jason Clark, Wilkes-Barre; Colleen Grosenick, Ridgely, Md.; Christine Guarino, Wilkes-Barre; Leanne Mazurick, Pittsburgh; and Isaac VonRue, Shavertown.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. TheWidmann Gallery is located in the Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets. Gallery hours: Mon. through Fri., 9 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.; Sat. and Sun., as arranged. For more information, visit the Experiencing the Arts Calendar at www.kings.edu or contact Widmann Gallery Coordinator Michelle Leonard at (570) 208-5900, ext. 5328.
