Viewers will experience the powerful and dynamic touch of the artist in her presentations of people in their natural, day-to-day moments. Her artistic inspiration is the human form, and the figure in environments, in communities and the self.

Contoocook print collector and curator Parker Potter has invited 26 New Hampshire-based printmakers to present a revisiting of an earlier work to reimage a theme that has held for the artist to this day. The new work may be one that engages that theme while rethinking size, color, a new composition or process, or some other variable.
Reception Friday, October 18, 4-6pm
This art exhibition explores themes of motherhood from the visceral to the emotional to the intellectual, responding to a society that sentimentalizes mothers but does not always respect them. Four New Hampshire artists—Marcia Santore, Laura Morrison, Patricia Schappler, and Annette Mitchell—reflect how artists who are mothers address concepts of nurturing, biology, connection, family, chaos, fear, and loss. Curated by Marcia Santore.
Reception Tuesday, March 4, 4-6pm
The BFA degrees in studio art and graphic design are intense, highly focused professional programs. Throughout the year, studio art majors delve into personal themes, motifs, and media to achieve a mature body of work, culminating in the selection of work featured in this threshold exhibit at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. Graphic design majors create and define a fictitious company and spend the year producing a broad range of applications including logos, stationery, advertisements, posters, pamphlets, and publications. These materials are displayed in the Silver Center for the Arts atrium. BFA students in both programs are mentored by selected faculty members, although all faculty participate in critiques and individual dialog with the students throughout the experience.
Reception Tuesday, April 22, 4-6pm
