Currently Available Art - Centre County Grange Fair

Every year since 2009, I've spent most of Fair week in late August at the Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair in Centre County, Pennsylvania, as the official Artist in Residence. I paint various aspects of the fair on site and also take hundreds of photographs to use as references for later studio paintings through out the year. The pieces shown below are, as much as I am able to keep up, currently available. They are generally at my home gallery, The Green Drake Gallery and Arts Center, in Millheim, Pennsylvania. They can be seen in person there during regular hours or by appointment, and I am also able to ship directly to you. Please get in touch by email <> or phone (814-422-8461) to inquire about a purchase. I also welcome commissions to paint specific subjects to meet your needs. Most of my available work is done in standard sizes to allow easy switching of frames, usually without changing the price. Click on the image for a closeup view. Giclee on canvas prints in very limited editions are available for a few of the large pieces, as noted.

I am also available to speak to your group and do a demo of how I paint the Fair, either at the Green Drake or at your location. Get in touch for details.

The animal barns are manned 24/7 by the families with animals there for judging and sometimes sale. It is truly a family affair, often with a camper parked near the barn.
