Joseph Marchetti, graduate of Central High School in Philadelphia and Tyler School of Art, Temple University presents “Places I Remember". The exhibit includes paintings that represent over two years of work in Bucks, Lancaster and Lehigh Counties. The body of work started with a painting of the Scholfield-Ford Covered Bridge in Tyler State Park and now includes covered bridges, farms, barns and castles in Pennsylvania.

“These farms were the back bone of Pennsylvania and sadly many are being lost to modernization and housing development. These paintings document some of them. They remind me of my childhood in up-state Pennsylvania where my family resides from Carbon County through Luzerne County. That is why I title the work, “Places I Remember.” The farms and barns are links to the past, many seem so familiar and their stories are slowly disappearing.” – Marchetti

Artist Reception: Saturday, September 18 from noon - 4:00 pm
