Compendium is designed to highlight the thriving artistic community of the Lehigh Valley and region and to showcase the diverse array of multi-disciplinary artists. In addition, the exhibition promotes the Artist Collective program at the Banana Factory Arts Center which offers creative networking, professional development, and career opportunities for visual artists.

This year the exhibition will be juried by Tim Higgins. Higgins is a working artist and freelance writer, arts journalist, editor, reporter, and publisher living and working in the Lehigh Valley for the past 35 years. Higgins, who has interviewed and written about many major artists working on the international, national and regional levels, including Roy Lichtenstein, Jamie Wyeth, Judy Pfaff, Angel Suarez, Roger Dean, Greg Weaver, Mort Kunstler, Adal Maldonado, and a host of others, remains committed to promoting the visual arts in and around the Lehigh Valley.

Juror’s Statement
I would like to thank the staff at the Banana Factory for this opportunity, especially Stacie Brennan, Hillary Harper, Nicole Gencarelli, Nicki Stager and Jeffrey Ludwig-Dicus for their valued assistance.
This exhibition was culled from 411 works of art entered by 138 artists from around the Lehigh Valley. 57 works by 50 artists were eventually chosen. The criteria given to me was to choose ‘the best of the best.’ The selections made were based on that criteria.
My congratulations to all who entered and were chosen to be part of this exhibit which serves as a great reminder of the diverse and exceptional artists residing in the Lehigh Valley.
