The Founder’s Gallery showcases the life of Museum founder Dr. Isaiah F. Everhart, tracing his life from its beginnings in rural Southeastern Pennsylvania, through his career as a surgeon in the Civil War, to his settling in Scranton and establishment of the Museum that bears his name. Dr. Everhart’s story is told in his own words taken from journal entries; through objects from the Museum’s collection, including the many taxidermy specimens he completed; and through rarely seen photos from the Museum’s archives.

The Founder’s Gallery is made possible through the generous gift of the Munley Family and Munley Law, in memory of Robert W. Munley, Esq.

Women in Art showcases the exceptional artistic legacy of female artists in Northeastern Pennsylvania and beyond, as well as exemplary works depicting women. Bringing together a diverse group of artists, each with their unique style, voice, and vision, the exhibition is a testament to the power of women in art, both as creators and as subjects.

Through painting, sculpture, watercolor, and mixed media, these artists exemplify and portray the many facets of womanhood, from strength and beauty to resilience and vulnerability.  Featured artists include Hope Horn, Priscilla Longshore Garrett, Margaret Oettinger, and more.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with WVIA Public Media.

Featuring selections from the Everhart’s collection, this show highlights Wilkes-Barre, PA native Jon Carsman’s (1944–1987) distinctive silkscreens as well as his acrylic, pen, and watercolor works. Much of his catalog includes pieces inspired by the natural landscape and architecture of Northeastern Pennsylvania, encapsulated in vivid work often described as “super realism” or “new realism.” Carsman became widely renowned, exhibiting alongside fellow silkscreen artist Andy Warhol and Abstract Expressionist Hans Hofmann.
