The Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery in Schlow Centre Region Library is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Juried Exhibition, July 1st through July 30th, 2013. All new and established artists, ages 16 and up, with a primary residence in Centre County, PA (or within 30 miles of State College), may submit up to two pieces for consideration; artists chosen to participate will be represented by one piece only.
Most of Holly Fritchman's exquisite artwork is inspired by nature. From intricate portraits of a single acorn to gorgeous landscapes of an autumn marsh, her work draws one in with its elegant beauty.
Fritchman describes "each art experience as a gift of time...every time I pick up my brush or pencil, I see something new." Balancing the fine detail of watercolor and pencil with the looseness of oil painting keeps her energized and curious.
Artist Rachel DiAndrea's love for animals is immediately apparent in her colorful, engaging portraits of dogs, horses and even pigs. Particularly passionate about dogs, DiAndrea has established herself as a premier national canine illustrator.
What sets her apart from other canine artists is her ability to capture not only the breed, but the heart and soul of each beloved family pet. As a dog owner and lover herself, her enthusiasm and passion for her subjects is visible in each animal's distinctive personality.
- "One of my greatest pleasures is the act of taking a photograph," says artist and photographer Bob Baumbach. Baumbach's pleasure is fully visible in the exquisite photographs of Yellowstone National Park on display in his exhibit, Geysers and Hot Springs of Yellowstone, at Schlow Centre Region Library's Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery from November 1 to November 30.more info
