Scranton Notorious

From the collections of Nick Petula, a Show curated by Bernie Andreoli

Curator’s Statement:

The spark for this show began three years ago when my friend Nick Petula asked me to scan part of his collection of 100-year-old Scranton Police Department mug shots.  They intrigued me.   I couldn’t get the images, descriptions of the criminals and description of crimes out of my head.  The images are wonderful examples of basic informational portraits yet they appear to have been made by a true photographic artist.  The frontal image with an expressionless stare and piercing eyes and the casual profile belie the reason for the images to be made.  A meld of art, history and the foibles of man.
The show will open on Friday, November 4th with an artists reception from 6 pm – 8:15 pm and will run until December 30, 2016.

The Camerawork Gallery is located in the lower level of Marquis Art and Frame at 515 Center St. Scranton, PA.
Hours are Monday through Saturday 10 am – 6 pm. 570-344-3313
