HUB-Robeson Galleries to showcase watercolors, photographs and other works

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The HUB-Robeson Galleries at Penn State will hold the following spring/summer exhibitions:

Marlee Erwin
HUB Gallery
May 14 to July 28
Free and open to the public
Public reception: 5 to 7 p.m. June 7

A member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Marlee has been painting since she was very young and describes her process as an intense experience that takes her "to a different dimension."

"I've always been in love with color," Marlee said. "When I paint flowers, I want to feel their color, not just see it."

The display will feature 12 of her large-scale watercolor paintings of flowers. 

Photography by Abby and Jeremy Drey
Art Alley in the HUB-Robeson Center
May 23 to Sept. 4
Free and open to the public

The sibling photographers will be displaying 24 prints together.

Abby, a 2010 Penn State graduate and staff photographer for the Centre Daily Times, enjoys creating images that are “completely different from (her) photojournalism work.”

“Wondering through overgrown fields and woods throughout Pennsylvania, I’ve found beauty in things that some people see as junk, things of the past left to decay,” Abby said.

Abby’s 12 color photographs being displayed in Art Alley were captured over the last several years at various locations.

Jeremy, a 2006 Penn State graduate and staff photographer for the Reading Eagle, will be displaying a collection 12 photographs captured on traditional black and white film.

“Making images with an out-of-date process seemed only appropriate when capturing old mechanical items that have also become out of date,” he said of the collection. “The relaxing approach to this photography has allowed me to hone an artistic style in all aspects of my photography life.”
