FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For one night only, both local and national artists come together to present their final works.
Please join us for the culmination of the Pajama Factory’s 8-week Artist-in-Residence program. The artists, who hail from Las Vegas, New York City, State College, Bloomsburg and our very own Williamsport, will be presenting readings and performances in PJF Community Room at the top of every hour while visual and fine artists will be on display in the Factory Works Gallery (@FactoryWorksGallery) located on the 2nd floor, Studio 9-210N.
Chosen to participate in this year’s program through a curated process, each artist was asked to provide one outreach component for the public and state what they hoped to accomplish during their time at the Factory. They have created works in mediums as varied as painting, fiber arts, printmaking, digital and new media, photography, writing and performance. They represent a diverse array of practices emblematic of the spirit the Pajama Factory Artist-in-Residence has embodied since it inception in 2009.
This year’s artists are: Rachel Cualedare, Kay Leigh Farley, Rowan Shaffer, Sigfried Aragona, Sarah Foster, Sophie Najjar, and Sheilagh Weymouth. The artists themselves will be in attendance to discuss their work. Light refreshments will be served.
We hope you’ll join us, Friday, August 2nd from 6 to 9 pm, for this final closing exhibition. To find statements regarding their work as well as biographical information, please visit the 2019 Final Exhibition page on the air.pajamafactory.net website.

The Pajama Factory started out in the 1880s, as a rubber company. Later on, hundreds worked here making Keds sneakers. In the 1930s, the Weldons Pajama Company moved in. The eight-building complex would grow to become the largest pajama factory in the world.
A set is on display inside Todd Foresman’s Coffee shop on the ground floor, where he takes pride in his work. “When you are cooking for people that you care about, you make a better meal. It’s the same with the coffee. I really love what I do. I really do believe I have the best coffee in the state,” said Todd Foresman, Owner, Way Cool Beans Coffee Shop
Todd’s landlord is property owner Mark Winkelman, an architect from New York. He’s renovating the Pajama Factory and turned part of the building into his home away from home. “We’ve owned it for twelve years. It’s been a continuous renovation effort. And we will continue for many more years. I like the slow growth, the organic growth aspect of that,” said Mark Winkelman, Owner of the Pajama Factory.
