ACA Welcomes New Studio Artist: Photographer Paul Marotta

ACA is delighted to announce that Arlington photographer Paul Marotta has joined ACA’s community of studio artists.

Paul has exhibited his photographs at Arlington Open Studios for the past several years, and when a rare studio space opened up at ACA this fall, Paul jumped on the opportunity to bring his studio to the Arts Center.

“I’m delighted to be a part of the extremely creative collection of artists in Arlington and part of this community at the Arlington Center for the Arts,” said Marotta. “I grew up in the area and worked at performing arts institutions across the country for so many years and to be back here in Arlington is terrific. It is my goal to offer creative and artistic photography at very reasonable prices to the entire community, including families, businesses, pet owners, visual and performing artists and more. I work with performing artists and major arts institutions throughout the New England region and hope to bring that creative energy to the Arlington community.”
