Misericordia University

The Art Gallery in The Sandy & Marlene Insalaco Hall

Misericordia University is fortunate to showcase the fascinating glass sculptures of legendary glass artist Christopher Ries for the inaugural exhibition of the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery inside Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall.  The installation, "Guiding Light," unites a world-class sculptor with a world-class gallery.  This is a fitting opening exhibition for the region's newest arts arena, as it dramatically launches the visual arts at Misericordia to a campus and community-wide audience.

"Glass is the essential material which gathers, focuses, reflects, refracts, amplifies, filters, and transmits light.  I use these special light altering abilities to create a kind of optical poetry."
