Tunkhannock Chalks Up Another Fourth Friday

Those walking to and from eateries and driving through downtown Tunkhannock on Friday evening were treated to an amalgamation of arts and crafts, from sidewalk art created by (top, from left) Erin Burke, Roger Staron and Aiden Learn to a blend of folk and country songs rendered by popular local guitarist Jessica Illuzzi (above, right). It was all part of the borough’s Fourth Friday celebration, during which specialty shops and eateries stay open until 8 pm.

Sue Palackas (above) describes her painting style as “kaleidescope.” She starts with water colors, dabs them with plastic wrap before drying, then paints geometric shapes on the blotches until she sees something begin to emerge.
