Wyoming Seminary junior Ryan Frania of Wyoming will display his creative works in a variety of mediums in an exhibition titled, “Redesigning Reality,” in King’s College Widmann Gallery from Monday, Jan. 7, through Friday, Feb. 15.
Frania has displayed his artwork in galleries at Berwick Hospital, Barnes & Noble Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County Community College, and Citizen's Bank in Forty Fort. He has won “Best of Show” in the annual Rossetti Memorial Art Exhibit and received awards in other exhibitions, including the Cider Painters of America. He also showcased his works in King’s “Emerging Artists” exhibition.
Frania will discuss his craft during a meet-the-artists reception from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18, in the Widmann Gallery, Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets.
“My goal while creating this exhibit was to explore the ways in which images and styles affect observers,” Frania said. “I use a variety of image scales, compositions, and levels of realism. These works exaggerate the variety among them which also serves as a comparison between them.”
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours: Mon. through Fri., 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Sat. and Sun., as arranged. The Gallery is closed on national holidays and during scheduled breaks throughout the academic year.
