The 40th annual Suzanne Maria Rossetti Memorial Art Exhibition opened Sunday at the Schulman Gallery, Luzerne County Community College, Nanticoke. Joe and Sue Hand of Dallas have sponsored the Suzanne Maria Rossetti Memorial Juried Art Contest for the past 40 years in memory of the daughter of the late Peter and Louise Rossetti of Saugus, Mass. The works were created by students in grades seven through 12 associated with the Dallas, Lehman, Tunkhannock, or Northwest geographic areas. Entries are judged separately at each grade level in 12 different categories by two panels of three judges each. Additionally, a separate jury of eight professionals awarded over $9,000 in community-sponsored prizes. The exhibition of the winning works continues until Wednesday, April 2 at the Schulman Gallery, LCCC, 521 Trailblazer Drive (Building #14), Nanticoke. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Special Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to noon on March 12 and April 2. For more information, contact Heather Madeira at 570-675-5094.
