Pacione Studio Gallery
Andrea Pacione is an American contemporary oil painter and poet. She serves as an Adjunct Professor for the Arts and Communication Department at SUNY Orange and a Part-Time Oil Painting Instructor for the Adult and Continuing Education Department at Orange-Ulster BOCES. Her deep background in drawing, painting, research, writing, and public speaking has prepared her for these teaching appointments, and for the establishment of her own art studio and gallery hybrid, Pacione Studio Gallery at 75 Broadway in Newburgh, New York.
Pacione’s recent solo show, “Hot Pink Getaway,” debuted at the Mindy Ross Gallery in Kaplan Hall at the SUNY Orange Newburgh campus. This body of work is autobiographical in that it addresses childhood trauma, chronic illness, the struggle of living with disability; and in the larger sense, hopefully encompassing the psychological and spiritual triumph of self- actualization.
Pacione graduated from SUNY New Paltz summa cum laude, with high honors and a Master of Fine Arts. She also continued her scientific and mathematical passions through membership in the New Paltz Biology club and continues interdisciplinary research in her studio process. Pacione wrote the Randi S. Eisman Memorial Scholarship for SUNY Orange, the only scholarship tailored specifically for visual arts majors.
