Nissley Gallery: September 7-December 10, 2021
The Nissley Gallery will now be featuring a rotation of contemporary local artists. The PMA’s first spotlight is artist Jerome Wright who is known for his figurative and abstract paintings as well as being an accomplished professional cellist. Wright was born in Richmond, Virginia before settling in Washington, D.C. where he graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School and The Workshop for Careers in the Arts. He then moved to Brazil for five years playing as Assistant Principal Cellist with the Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo under Maestro Carvallho before joining the U.S. Army. His Lancaster home has become an art and music studio, where he is surrounded by his instruments, paintings, and eclectic collection of artwork.
