PLYMOUTH, N.H. Plymouth State University will be hosting a summer long series of arts related events at the Silver Center for the Arts. PSU’s Karl Drerup Art Gallery is pleased to present a juried exhibition of the membership of the New Hampshire Art Association (NHAA). The second annual “Summer at the Silver Center” exhibit will be on display at the Silver Center for the Arts from July 5 through August 16.

The exhibit is coordinated by Katherine Muth, director of NHAA, and the juror is Tom Driscoll. Driscoll is an alumnus of Plymouth State and has been teaching in the art department since 1989. He coordinates the painting program, teaching all levels of painting, and has also taught extensively within the drawing, printmaking, and foundations programs. Driscoll holds a BFA from Plymouth State and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has served as a juror for regional competitions and has curated several exhibits, including a national encaustic show and a survey of New Hampshire painting. He leads an active studio life and has exhibited in juried competitions both regionally and nationally, winning several awards for his work. A member of the Ogunquit Arts Collaborative in Ogunquit, Maine, Driscoll is represented by McGowan Fine Art in Concord.

The NHAA is pairing its exhibition with a summer of musical performances presented by the New Hampshire Music Festival at the Silver Center. Exhibitors are invited to show two pieces of fine art that express their talent and highest level of achievement.

Founded in 1940, the nonprofit NHHA is one of the oldest statewide art associations in the country. It consists of more than 420 painters, photographers, watercolorists, printmakers, sculptors, and other fine artists living and working primarily in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont.

The Karl Drerup Art Gallery (plymouth.edu/gallery) presents year-round exhibitions of the finest art in New Hampshire as an educational service of the art department. It is located on the PSU campus in the Draper Maynard building on North Main Street in Plymouth.
