As its residents know, Centre County Pennsylvania is made up of aesthetically unique sights, sounds, tastes and culture. Comprised of vast plains, historic structures and big skies that change with the seasons, there is a wealth of beauty to be found in the community and within our natural surroundings. In “A Place Called Home: Scenes from Central PA”, eight Centre Country artists dedicate their practice to capturing the effervescent spirit of this magnificent landscape. Through varying processes and with unique perspectives, they share with us the essence of what it means to call Centre County “home”.
