Farmland Preservation Artists

FPA News & Events

Join the Centre County Historical Society for a reception to meet the artists on Sunday, February 24, at 2 p.m.

This exhibition will be in the first floor period rooms of the Centre Furnace Mansion and feature the artwork of The Farmland Preservation Artists of Central Pennsylvania, a group of artists dedicated to promoting the appreciation and preservation of our area’s farmland through the visual arts.

These artists work in a variety of media: acrylic, oil, watercolor, soft pastel, and photography. As one of the artists said, “The joy of experiencing the farm landscapes becomes magnified and continues long after the painting is done”. The Farmland Preservation Artists aspire to awaken the community’s awareness of the visual beauty and agricultural richness that contributes to what is unique about Centre County.

  • To highlight farm life, local food markets and economy
  • To illustrate the issues facing farmers that affect our communities
  • To increase support for farmland preservation through the exhibition and sale of art
