Vincent Carducci received a Bachelor of Arts from Penn State and currently resides in Millheim.  Painting from life in each season, he is known for his direct and spontaneous landscapes of Pennsylvania, Maine and the Rocky Mountain states.  A painterly realist, Carducci has extended his early watercolor methods through to his broader style of oil on canvas.  Printmaking has allowed another avenue for reductive and additive processes, playing out transparency with local color, and the union of natural imagery with a fluid, personal handling of pigment. 

His work has had 16 solo exhibitions and is included in a range of private and public collections.  Museums that have invited his work in exhibition include The Palmer Museum of Art, The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, and The Portland Museum of Art.


David Paden is an elementary school music teacher from Bellefonte who is interested in folk music and collecting folk instruments.  Influenced by his artist brother, he took up drawing in 1983.  After much trial and error and "endless frustrations" with oils, markers, oil crayons and charcoal, he turned to pastels and was hooked.  "My interest lay in nuance and atmospheric conditions, and pastels fit in," he says.  In his "Dreamscapes", he is "aiming for a peaceful, relaxing quality; I'm not interested in the torment of nature such as the sky just before a storm."


Michael Theuer is a self-taught artist living in Bellefonte who works as a child therapist.  He also teaches watercolor painting and drawing at Penn State and draws pencil portraits for private and business clients on commission.
