SHOW EXTENDED: Mark Loughney: All The Things

Published: April 29, 2024

Due to popular demand Scranton Shakes is holding over the Mark Loughney Show, “All the Things” for First Friday May 3rd and the show will be on display until May 18th. New prints have been added to the show. If you missed this amazing show you have another chance to see this not to be missed exhibit.

Mark Loughney is a draftsman, painter, and Dunmore native. His series of unconventional drawings were initiated during late-night hours within the confines of a prison cell. The spontaneous flow of thoughts during these challenging periods resulted in compelling outcomes that continue to influence both his drawings and paintings.

Mark’s portrait project, titled Pyrrhic Defeat: A Visual Study Of Mass Incarceration, was first shown in its early stage at The Wonderstone Gallery, then went on to be a major part of the award winning exhibition Marking Time: Art In The Age Of Mass Incarceration, which debuted at MoMA PS1 in 2020. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, Forbes, Artforum, The Paris Review, Hyperallergic, and NPR, among many other media outlets.
