At each of these ARTbreaks, KIA guests will hear from the KNAS residents about their experiences and artistic pursuits. Attend one or all three.

Painting/Drawing resident Libby Bergeon is a graduate of Western Michigan University, where she earned a BFA with an emphasis in Painting. Bergeon is a figurative painter working in acrylic and oil paint. Her current body of work focuses on body image and identity.

Printmaker Sydney Rotigel-Finegan graduated from Kalamazoo College with a BA in English and Studio Art.

Rotigel-Finegan is interested in asking herself the question, “Why did I pick that up and bring it home?”
