Mary Wilson of The Supremes makes a presentation in Lemmond Theater in Walsh Hall at Misericordia University during the opening reception of her exhibit, ‘The Mary Wilson Supremes’ Collection,’ at the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery at Misericordia University on July 22.

The Pauly Friedman Art Gallery at Misericordia University opened the much-anticipated “Mary Wilson Supremes’ Collection” exhibit on July 22 during an opening reception that featured Ms. Wilson and Maxine Powell, who is credited with giving The Supremes style and many other Motown acts grace during the height of their popularity in the late 1960s. 

The gallery is hosting the “Mary Wilson Supremes’ Collection” exhibit on campus from July 23 to October 17. The exhibit features more than 50 distinctive gowns the Motown hit makers wore during their climb to the top and rare memorabilia that spans their colorful career. The collection was last displayed in Royal Albert Hall in London, England.

Ms. Wilson is best known as a founding member of the world’s most famous female trio. With Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Ms. Wilson, the Supremes recorded 12 No. 1 hits from 1964 to 1969, including “Baby Love,” “Stop in the Name of Love,” and “Back in My Arms Again.” The Supremes is also the only group to record five consecutive No. 1 hits.

The gowns exhibit is open free to the public during art gallery hours. Hours are: Tues.-Thurs. 10 a.m to 8 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sat. – Sun. 1 to 5 p.m. For additional information, please go to the Friedman Gallery web page at or call 570.674.6250.
