Putting the “Trego” in the Trego Arts Center: November 6

Did you know that North Wales was the home of a late 19th century artist who created more than 200 historical paintings — causing writer to Edwin Augustus Peeples  to say, “There is probably not an American History book which doesn’t have a Trego picture in it.”

Outside of the history books, the new Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia has recreated Trego’s March to Valley Forge on pillows, mugs and more.

Find out more about the life and work of this North Wales neighbor in a talk by Joseph Eckhardt, author of So Bravely and So Well: The Life and Art of William T. Trego, on Wednesday, November 2, 7 p.m., at the Trego Arts Center at St. Luke’s, 125 N. Main St. in North Wales.
