Austin Burke is a product of the region and of proud, hard-working immigrant ancestors. Burke has worked to record the pride of the populace, their creations and their celebrations through a series of paintings he produced over the past two decades. Now retired after a forty-year career as former president of the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, Burke is making his work available to friends and admirers who have requested it and to the residents, visitors and alumni who share a love for this Northeastern Pennsylvania community.

Part of the proceeds will benefit the Albright Memorial Library. Michael Melcher, theatre director for CaPAA, will be the event’s auctioneer.
