MISSION: Educate, Enrich, Inspire

The mission of the Sordoni Art Gallery is to educate the Wilkes University family of students, faculty and staff through the collection, care, display, and interpretation of works of art; to enrich and deepen the understanding of human cultures, values, and traditions for this constituency; and to inspire the creative, intellectual and artistic life of the University and the community.

VISION: A different kind of classroom

To be a recognized and respected center for the creation of innovative learning environments and programs for the appreciation and study of visual art benefiting the academic and cultural community of Wilkes University and the surrounding Region.

To achieve this vision the Sordoni Art Gallery is committed to being a place:

  • Where education and exhibition is central to the Gallery's public service mission;
  • Where a vital and ambitious year-round exhibition schedule features artists of regional, national, and international reputation;
  • Where multiple and diverse audiences are comfortable and welcome;
  • And that collaborates, supports, and serves arts and cultural initiatives in the region.

Please feel free to stop by during Gallery hours:

Our normal hours are 12-4:30 pm Tuesday - Sunday or call us to arrange a private viewing time. We are closed during University Holidays and breaks.  We especially invite students to see what we have to offer.
