RAW LENSE THERAPY
Andrea Regalbuto is from a small town in Tioga County, PA, called Elkland. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Visual Art Studies at Penn State Altoona in May 2020. Growing up surrounded by farmland inspired Regalbuto to push her boundaries. Through her work, she strives to conjure up uncomfortable conversations. Regalbuto’s work dives into emotions and what is discovered when you go deep enough. She utilizes sculpture, photomontage and photography to convey complex subjects. Her work often includes motion and familiarity to convey the dream-like state she often finds herself in. Additionally, she uses her work to expose her inner thoughts in their most raw form in order for them to be acknowledged. During her time at Penn State Altoona, Regalbuto displayed both solo and group exhibitions in the Sheetz and McLanahan galleries. In the summer of 2019, she had a solo exhibition in the Schlow Centre Region Library in State College. She was awarded Penn State Altoona's Kenneth M. Kuhn Memorial Award for the Visual Arts in 2019. In 2020, she was awarded second place in the Penn State Undergraduate Research Fair oral presentation category for her senior exhibition, Flap/Flutter.
