Past Exhibits

Roxanne Naydan in the Sieg Gallery


Artist’s statement: Roxy’s paintings typically begin on location in the form of color notations and phrases that evoke the spirit, atmosphere, and light effects before her. These later serve as a basis for studio works. Processes grounded in classical training soon evolve into explorations of the poetic potential inherent in the subject matter. In seeing her subject matter - skies, waters, roads, forests, and fields, she visualizes their essence. These interpretations mirror her inner life and imagination and chart the flow of time.

Seeing and painting honestly and accurately has been important to Roxanne, but it is not her passion or primary goal. Rather, the process of editing the visual aspects of her subject matter and revealing their inherent secrets and narratives is what inspires her and seizes her imagination.

Bio: Roxanne Naydan holds a BA in art with a focus on painting and printmaking from Kean University, an MA in Art with a focus on painting from William Paterson University, and a teaching certificate in Art from Penn State University. Her paintings have appeared locally in individual, group, and juried shows in the State College area, where she worked as a guest art teacher, as well as in Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. Her graphic designs appear in Selected Poetry of Lina Kostenko: Wanderings of the Heart (Garland Publishers, 1990), which she illustrated.

BAM Photography Exhibit: 'Path of Exploration - Something Old, Something New' The overview of the exhibit is to display a wide range of different applications of my current photography and digital artwork. To me, they intermingle but are also separated into their own forms of art and expression. This exhibit includes the 3 major categories …. 1. Traditional photography 2. A combination of photography and digital painting 3. Total digital painting. I believe in exploring old and new techniques to achieve these very different end results. There is a sense of creative accomplishment when you can bridge these different applications to achieve a result in which viewers can appreciate the image but are also curious to know more about the process.
I view creativity as a way to explore our inner selves … to push our abilities to the limit. For me, pushing the limits is about grasping old and new techniques and finding ways to apply both of them to my craft.

Brittanny Handiboe in the Sieg Gallery


Brittanny Handiboe was born and raised just south of Baltimore Maryland. She doodled in her picture books as a child because her dream was to simply add her own pictures to the words. That dream hasn't changed much besides, well, doodling in other picture books... sorry Dr. Seuss.

​As an aspiring children’s book illustrator, Brittanny is constantly working on the best way to remember and share the nostalgic feeling of listening to someone read a good book before bedtime. Her writings, memories, and even the media she uses all work towards creating that feeling. Most of her pictures are either digital paint or watercolor, like in this particular series of images titled, “Findings in the Foliage,” which represents that magical, often mysterious, and of course adventurous, atmosphere of a childhood story.

Brittanny graduated from Montserrat College of Art with a dual major in illustration and painting, was a children's book reviewer from April of 2015 to April 2016, and she is also a fairly active member of the extremely supportive Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators.
