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.

Chad McKissick Artist Statement: Since a small child, I have always had a fascination with nature. Whether I was turning rocks in a trout stream looking for insect patterns to match for fishing, watching a distant thunderstorm build and move across the plains, or simply listening to songbirds as I napped under a tree on a warm summer day.

My images could be considered by most as an eclectic mix of subject matter. However, more often than not, they do tend to reflect on my fascination and love of the outdoors. They are not of distant far off exotic places only accessible to those of affluent means. Rather, they showcase the beauty afforded to everyone, of our very own public lands and back yards.

While I have no formal training with regards to photography or art in general, I do gravitate towards and draw inspiration from the works of Ansel Adams.

**Barb Pennypacker Artist Statement: **My love of farms, old barns and the beautiful rolling countryside of central Pennsylvania is the inspiration behind my paintings. I strive for realism in my painting. I work in my studio from photos
I've taken of rural central Pennsylvania.

Barb Pennypacker Biography: Barb Pennypacker was a faculty member in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences. A traumatic brain injury, from a collision with a coal train, took her analytical ability, which ended her research career. She held the rank of Professor of Agronomy and Assistant Dean of the Graduate School when she retired in 2005.

She soon realized that the old barns she loved were rapidly disappearing. Barb had a strong desire to paint these barns before they were gone forever. She took a private, month-long, drawing class. The studio was an abandoned farm with a crumbling barn.
She spent the next year plein air sketching old barns. Classes at the Art Alliance of Central PA and subsequent painting partners took her from sketching to watercolor to the oils she now uses.

Barb's paintings are featured in the Bellefonte Art Museum book 'Landscapes of Central Pennsylvania', and have been in numerous juried sh ows. She is a member of the Farmland Preservation Artists, the Art Alliance and the Bellefonte Art Museum's Artist Registry. She is curator of the Print Gallery and a member of the Advisory Board at the Bellefonte Art Museum.
