                 The University of Scranton’s Hope Horn Gallery will host a reception featuring its current exhibit, “John Willard Raught: Beauty Lies Close at Home,” as part of downtown Scranton’s First Fridays on Oct. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is free of charge and open to the public. The gallery is located on the fourth floor of Hyland Hall on the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Linden Street.

                The exhibit, which opened earlier this month, features the work of local impressioninst landscape artist John Willard Raught. Born in Scranton, Raught studied and traveled in New York City and Paris before returning in his later years to live and work in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The work includes many landscape paintings of areas in NEPA from private collections, including works from the private collection of Scranton native Richard Stanislaus, guest curator for the exhibit.

                The exhibit runs through Nov. 8 and can be seen, free of charge, during regular Gallery hours, which are Sunday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Hope Horn Gallery also has available for sale a three-volume catalogue of Raught’s work.

    For more information about the gallery exhibit and catalog, contact Dr. Miller-Lanning at 570-941-4214 or darlene.miller-lanning@scranton.edu, or visit the Hope Horn Gallery website at scranton.edu/gallery.
