Although a native to Pennsylvania, Neil Dreibelbis’s work belongs to private and corporate collections nationwide, including Lebanon Valley College, Pennsylvania State University, Armstrong Industries, and Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner & Smith.
Dreibelbis received his Bachelor’s degree from Kutztown University in Art Education and a Masters degree from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. His teaching positions in the townships of Exeter and Muhlenberg, gave him the experience necessary to become Art Coordinator for Manheim Township’s School District. In 1999, he was invited as a guest artist at the University of Alaska, and in 2001 he served as a Cultural Exchange Instructor at the Quinghai Normal University in China.
Since Dreibelbis retired from teaching, he is devoted to becoming a full-time artist. Sensing how a new environment may influence new direction, he is creating within a studio outside of home for the first time in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. Undeniably, a teacher, however, Dreibelbis continues to teach musical theater workshops at the Kimmel Center of Performing Arts and volunteers there as a tour guide.
