Eight Regional Painters
the Painting Faculty of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania


September 4 - October 2, 2011

Interviews with the artists: Malcolm Christhilf / Terrence McKelvey / Michelle Vitali / Benedict Gibson


Though using long established forms and materials that are centuries old, these figurative artists are anything but old fashioned. Color, painting techniques, design, and psychological insight are wedded to traditional artistic values, placing these eight painters firmly in the art of our time. The Crary Art Gallery is pleased to present the work of this dynamic group of artists.

n a region loosely conforming to the borders of Erie County, there is an unexpected collection of figurative painters. These artists were brought into the area to teach in Edinboro University's Art Department, the recognized leader in arts education among Pennsylvania's fourteen State System Universities. The artists that comprise this group are John Bavaro, Geoffrey Beadle, Rachael Burke, Malcolm Christhilf, Benedict Gibson, Terrence McKelvey, Michelle Vitali and David Warner.
