August First Friday: Meet Local Photographer Ted Scarpino
Gallery 30, celebrating 39 years as a historic and literary landmark in Historic Downtown Gettysburg, will host local photographer Ted Scarpino during the First Friday reception on August 3.

Scarpino enjoys photographing subjects of all kinds, but he’s found exceptional interest in the local area. He is fascinated by the “graphic landscapes” in the orchard areas of Adams County.  The linear elements of the rows of trees on the rolling hills tell a story of the hand of man interacting with nature’s landscape.  

“Downtown Gettysburg is a wonderful mix of past and present,” said Scarpino. Many of the photographic prints on canvas and note cards on display at Gallery 30 exhibit his endeavors to portray his mind’s eye view of the area. Gallery 30 has been representing Ted for over 5 years.

Over the years his work has been selected for juried shows, publications, and private collections.  He was really pleased to receive a master of photography designation from the Professional Photographers of America.  Ted currently enjoys teaching classes at the Adams County Arts Council.

Come meet Ted Scarpino, explore local art, and enjoy a wine and cheese reception at Gallery 30 from 5:30-8:30 PM on Friday, August 3, 2018. Gallery 30 is located at 26 York Street. For more information visit or call 717-334-0335.
