Bloomsburg University to exhibit “Circle in the Round” by alumnus Frank DePietro

BLOOMSBURG—Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania presents “Circle in the Round,” an exhibition by Frank DePietro ’97, now through Thursday, Oct. 24, in the Haas Gallery of Art. A reception and talk will be held on Oct. 24, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and is free to the public.

Inspiring DePietro’s work is his close observations of the natural world and life’s continual cycles of decay and regeneration. His exhibition features thirty medium-sized oil paintings of Lotus plants and flowers.

After graduating from Bloomsburg University, DePietro completed a degree in art education at Moore College of Art and Design. After living in Philadelphia for 12 years, painting and teaching at regional museums, art centers, and schools, he relocated to Chester County, Pa. There he teaches painting classes and workshops at the Delaware Art Museum and Longwood Gardens. DePietro has received numerous awards, and his work is exhibited in many collections, including the permanent collection of the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
