The Farmland Preservation Artists of Central Pennsylvania (FPA) formed in late 2005. We are a joint enterprise of the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania and the Centre County Farmland Trust.

Our mission is to promote the preservation and appreciation of farmland through the visual arts.

Our artists work in a variety of media and focus upon the following goals:

  • To portray the beauty of the rural landscape, the local farms and the agricultural products they yield
  • 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
  • To promote the goals of the co-sponsoring organizations, the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania and the Centre County Farmland Trust
