Join us for the opening reception for the locally historical exhibition, “Wood on Glass.” The exhibition consists of a body of photographs by little known and long forgotten itinerant photographer William T. Clarke (1859-1930)—a Rochester, NY native who chronicled the lumber industry and its dramatic impact on north central Pennsylvania during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Clarke’s evocative legacy is showcased in “Wood on Glass” with custom prints made from glass plate negatives, now housed at the Pennsylvania State Archives and in private hands.

The opening reception will take place on Friday, November 6th 6-9pm in the Factory Works Gallery, studio 10, on the 2nd floor of the Pajama Factory. At 7pm there will be a gallery talk by Mike Wennin (Executive Director, Lumber Heritage Region).

This exhibition is sponsored by the Northcentral Pennsylvania Conservancy, Pennsylvania Lumber Heritage Region, Pajama Factory, and Factory Works.
