The National Canal Museum will debut an exhibition of the works of folk artist Frank "WYSO" Wysochansky (1915-1994) on Saturday, November 10 as part of Show More...its participation in the regionwide 250th anniversary celebration of the first documented use of anthracite coal in America.

On Saturday, Nov. 10, at 1:00 p.m., Steven Lichak of the WYSO Foundation will give a talk on the eccentric life and innovative works of WYSO at the National Canal Museum to celebrate the exhibition's opening.

The National Canal Museum will debut an exhibition of the works of folk artist Frank "WYSO" Wysochansky (1915-1994) on Saturday, November 10 as part of Show More...its participation in the regionwide 250th anniversary celebration of the first documented use of anthracite coal in America.

The exhibition Frank Wyso: The Coal Connection will showcase some of the Blakely, PA native's compelling work depicting the lives of coal miners. Having lost his father in a mining accident, WYSO was familiar with the harsh realities of coal miners' lives, as well as the strong community ties these dangerous conditions fostered. It was this intimate knowledge which would influence his art throughout his life. His evocative paintings and sculptures document the tools and working conditions of the anthracite coal mines of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the modest means and lifestyles of the coal miners' families.

On Saturday, Nov. 10, at 1:00 p.m., Steven Lichak of the WYSO Foundation will give a talk on the eccentric life and innovative works of WYSO at the National Canal Museum to celebrate the exhibition's opening. Family-friendly art activities held in the museum's Welcome Center will also allow children and adults to explore WYSO's artistic techniques. The talk and activities are free as part of museum admission.
Other upcoming events include a book signing and talk by Vince Hydro, author of the Mauch Chunk Switchback, on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 3:00 pm and a holiday swag-making workshop with Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor Executive Director Elissa Garofalo on Sunday, Nov. 18 from 1:00-3:30 p.m. The museum's other special exhibition, Powering America: Pennyslvania's Anthracite Railroads, also continues through Dec. 23. This exhibition features a working model railroad platform with a coal mine and patch town as its centerpiece. Powering America and the National Canal Museum's extended opening in November and December this year are generously supported by a grant from the County of Northampton's Hotel Tax Program.. ...Show Less
