"Paintings of Monhegan Island, Maine" by Artist Jeanne McKinney

Monhegan Island itself is located about ten miles off the Maine coast. With no paved roads or airports, the island is only accessible by ferry ride across the open Atlantic Ocean. Monhegan Island is known for its rugged natural beauty - tall headlands, rocks and crashing surf. For the past seven years, artist Jeanne McKinney has traveled to this island to paint and find inspiration. The island has challenged her as an artist to paint a landscape that is not as familiar to her as the streams and woods where she lives in Central Pennsylvania. The island is a treasure and a truly magical place!

Anne Buchanan in the Sieg Gallery


After 30 years of doing research in genetics in the Anthropology department at Penn State, I began to draw. Although visual art is very different from science in many ways, I find that still both are explorations of truth, each a continuing process of experimenting, discovery, successes, and failures. And each requires a way of looking at details that, with luck, eventually make sense to the onlooker. But, while science rejected alchemy long ago, the optical illusion that drawing can be, marks on paper becoming three-dimensional objects, really is a transformation.

I love the moment when the drawing or painting comes alive, when the eyes begin to seem expressive, or when it’s just possible to imagine the animal or object in its environment, and that you are there, observing. The transformation of some marks on a piece of paper into three dimensions is magical to me every time it happens.
