Wayne Bank Supports Scranton Art Events in December

Scranton, PA – Wayne Bank will support two highly anticipated art events in downtown Scranton during the month of December.

On the first weekend in December, Wayne Bank will sponsor the fifth annual ScrantonMade Holiday Market. Hosted by ScrantonMade and Lackawanna County, this festive event will once again be held at the nostalgic Globe Store on December 1 from 5-9 pm, December 2 from 11-7 pm, and December 3 from 11-4 pm. Over 150 artisan vendors and local businesses, live music, food, and more will bring the historic department store to life. Local artists will design the Globe Store window displays and the first 200 shoppers on Saturday, December 2, will receive a free goodie bag filled with an assortment of surprises from vendors.

Wayne Bank will also host a First Friday event in conjunction with Happenings Magazine on December 1. During the month of October, Happenings’ held their first-ever Student Cover Contest. Students in Grades 9-12, from across Northeastern PA, were invited to submit their original artwork with the theme of “Christmas Across Pennsylvania” to be considered for publication on the front cover of the December 2017 issue. The winning piece, along with all of the entries, will be exhibited during Scranton’s First Friday Art Walk at Wayne Bank’s Central Scranton Community Office, located at 216 Adams Avenue in downtown Scranton. Everyone is welcome to attend and refreshments will be available, while supplies last.

“One of our taglines is ‘Wayne Bank Loves Local Artists’, so we’re thrilled to support both of these fantastic art events in downtown Scranton,” stated Matt Swartz, Wayne Bank’s Central Scranton Community Office Manager. “We are fortunate to have so many talented local artists in our area and these events will give everyone an opportunity to see that first hand. From the wide range of artists and artisans featured at ScrantonMade’s Holiday Market to the next generation of emerging artists at the First Friday student exhibit with Happenings, we are so excited to see all of this artistic talent on display in Scranton.”
