Annual Juried PSU Student Exhibition

March 14th, 2014 by Lynn

PLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery and Exhibitions Program at Plymouth State University will present the 2014 Juried Student Exhibition March 25-April 13 at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. A reception will be held from 4-6 p.m. March 25 in the gallery.

The exhibition showcases selected works in all media by students from across the campus. Students from all art department levels and disciplines share the outcomes of their progress in education and refinement in art making in this show. Students may each submit up to three pieces of exhibition-ready art made within the last year. Only 15 pieces will be accepted for each level in the exhibition, and awards will be made for “Best in Level” works and one for overall “Best in Show.”

Interim Gallery Director Cynthia Robinson says, “The format for this exhibition is unusual in that art work in each level is judged in relation only to other students’ submissions within that level.”

There are four levels, from introductory or foundation level through to capstone projects, approximating the traditional levels of a four-year degree. In addition, a fifth level, one of completely independent works, is judged by itself. This category is in keeping with the department’s tradition of encouraging and nurturing independent, self-directed creativity according to Robinson.

This year’s jurors are Adam Blue, education director of AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, and Suzanne Canali, chair of the art education department at the NH Institute of Art in Manchester. Blue is also art editor of “The Whitefish Review,” a nationally acclaimed literary and arts journal, and serves on the board of the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vt. He graduated Dartmouth College, studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, and holds an MFA from the California College of the Arts.

Canali graduated from New England College with a BA in painting and public relations, and earned an MA in liberal arts from New York University. She also holds K-12 art educator certification from Franklin Pierce University and is pursuing a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies at Plymouth State University. As a juror, Canali says she will be looking for compositions that illustrate progress in quality and creativity in both the subject and handling of media.

A new interactive way to experience the gallery will be launched for this exhibition. Students will record comments about their work, and the recordings will be paired with images of their work to create an audio tour of the exhibition both online, and as a walking tour.

Karl Drerup Art Gallery Hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.;  Wednesday 10 a.m.-8 p.m.;  Saturday and Sunday 1-4 p.m. during the academic year. The gallery is closed PSU holidays.

    MOMMA at the Silver

    February 27th, 2014 by Heather

      MOMMA at the Silver

      Four artist-mothers, Marcia Santore and Annette Mitchell of Plymouth, Laura Morrison of Concord and Patricia Schappler of Bedford will reveal their insights into the concepts of mother and motherhood in a new exhibition, MOMMA, opening at the Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University March 3.

      A public reception will be held from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, March 4 at Silver.

      The show runs through April 11.

      Motherhood is a profoundly feminist subject for Santore, who curated MOMMA, choosing the artists and art works for the exhibition. MOMMA 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, according to the curator.

      Santore says the exhibition is about showing something important about artist-mothers, “how being mothers affects the work we do as artists — we are who we are and where we are in large part because of our roles as mothers. How we see the world, what we notice, what we make art about is strongly affected by our roles as mothers.”

      But she adds emphatically that MOMMA is not a polemical motherhood manifesto.

      “It is not about mothers being better or worse than other women, or advocating any particular way of being a mother, nor is it about defining women as mothers first and anything else second.”

      Each artist was chosen because she addresses aspects of motherhood in her work, but each from a different perspective. Laura Morrison’s sculptural yarn work addresses the generative properties of nature, while her delicate assemblages are ruminations about family and connections between people. Morrison learned how to sew from her mother, playing with the materials in the sewing room. The memories generated by their working together represent a large part of Morrison’s childhood. Patti Schappler’s drawings and paintings create lifesize and more-than-lifesize, closely observed portraits of her children over time, individually and as a family. She says that since her teenage years she has used drawing as a way of quickly looking at and talking about the relationships she observes in the world. Annette Mitchell is bringing her perspective as a mother, a grandmother and a daughter to the show. Her paintings, prints and quilts reflect the fact that life with children can be both humorous and exhausting. The first of her own paintings Santore selected for the show is “Lupa,” a painting of the wolf who raised Romulus and Remus. In further exploring the topic, however, Santore ended up creating an en- tire new series of works, the “Minivan Series,” which is based on things seen and imagined from different perspectives inside a vehicle associated with motherhood.

      Karl Drerup Art Gallery and Exhibitions Director Cynthia Robinson says the artwork will be “fabulous, a visual feast that will lure us in and invite us to reflect on our own experience in today’s culture.” How working female artists who are also mothers in rural areas like New Hampshire are undervalued in the art world, is an underlying concept in MOMMA.

      The exhibitions program, in collaboration with the PSU Women’s Studies Council and Lamson Library, will present the film “Who Does She Think She Is?” at 7 p.m. Monday, March 10 in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center.

      This documentary by Academy Award-winning producer Pamela Tanner Boll features five bold women who navigate some of the most problematic intersections of our time: parenting and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art. Through their lives Tanner Boll explores what it means to nurture children and family, and keep the creative fire burning within. The 82- minute film will be followed by a brief discussion.

      There is no charge for admission.

      Silver Center hours are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. Information about the gallery and exhibitions program at Plymouth State University is online at Plymouth.edu/gallery.

      Recent Works by PSU Professor of Art Thomas Driscoll Jr. at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery

      February 6th, 2014 by Lynn

        PLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery at Plymouth State University will present an exhibition of recent works by Professor of Art Thomas Driscoll Jr. February 11–March 8, beginning with an opening reception from 4–6 p.m. February 11.

        Interim Gallery Director Cynthia Robinson says, “The work in this exhibit represents Tom Driscoll’s explorations of the sense of place: geographically, temporally and psychologically.”

        The exhibition includes two parallel bodies of work: the highly textured, gestural pieces explore nonverbal creative impulses leading to self-discovery; while the collage/map pieces merge more formal and conceptual approaches to image making. Robinson says Driscoll recognizes and embraces a variety of intersections between these two methodologies.

        A public gallery talk by Driscoll is scheduled for 4 p.m. Wednesday, February 19.

        Driscoll holds a BFA from Plymouth State and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has been teaching at Plymouth State University since 1989, coordinating the painting program and teaching courses within the drawing, printmaking and foundations programs. In addition, he has offered workshops in stone lithography at a regional cooperative printmaking studio. 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 at the turn of the 21st century.

        Professor Driscoll leads an active studio life and has exhibited in juried competitions both regionally and nationally, winning several awards for his work. He also has had many one- and two-person regional exhibits. He is a member of the Ogunquit Arts Collaborative in Maine and is represented by McGowan Fine Art in Concord, N.H.

        The Karl Drerup Art Gallery is located in the Draper and Maynard Building on No. Main Street in Plymouth. Gallery hours are Mon.–Fri. 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Wed. 10 a.m.–8 p.m., Sat. and Sun. 1 p.m.–4 p.m., and by appointment. Gallery information is online at Plymouth.edu/gallery.

All the sketches share qualities of heart and hand and the incredible capacity to closely observe the world and connect with others that is representative of Guggenheim’s work.

            An event celebrating the opening of the exhibition will be held from 4–6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3.

              PSU’s Karl Drerup gallery hosting exhibit by Chinese painter Yang Jikui

              October 4th, 2013 by Lynn

                PLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery at Plymouth State University will present an exhibition of paintings by Chinese artist Yang Jikui October 1­–November 9. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Tuesday, October 1 from 4-6 p.m. in the Draper and Maynard Building on North Main Street in Plymouth.

                Jikui is a prominent Chinese painter, well known for his elegant and bold ink brush paintings of traditional subjects such as exotic flowers, birds, fish and garden foliage. His masterful technique demonstrates the power and nuances available to an artist with his understanding and experience.

                Guided by his mentor Master Qi Baishi’s advice to his students that “whoever strives to acquire my spirit of innovation will succeed, while those who merely imitate me will fail,” Professor Jikui says he calmly and steadily marched on his own road to success. “I acquired from the works of ancient masters, and I go to nature to observe various life forms for novel ways to depict life, ” he says.

                Jikui explains that a literary background is extremely important to a brush painter. “A main feature of my artwork is its poetic content and depth in artistic dimensions, together to accomplish a fusion of brushwork art with poetry, making a painting is like conveying the culture,” he says.

                Jikui has studied brushwork painting since 1961 and has had solo exhibitions of his work in Japan, New York, Philadelphia and Bridgewater (Mass.). He has published two books. He has also taught at a number of schools and is an executive board member of Shan’xi Society of Fine Art, and vice president of Shan’xi Society of Brushwork. He is a member of the China Research Institute of Fine Art and the Shan’xi Research Institute of Culture and History.

                The exhibition has inspired a lecture series to coincide with Professor Yang’s visit to Plymouth State University. “Adventures in Chinese Culture,” will feature presentations by distinguished scholars on many topics. All talks will be held in the Drerup Gallery.

                The lecture series includes:

                Tuesday, October 1, 6 p.m.—Art that Transcends Borders: A Personal Cross-Cultural Appreciation of the Painting of Yang Jikui, Roger Dunn. Professor at Bridgewater (Mass.) State University.

                Tuesday, October 8, 5:30 p.m.—A Brief Introduction to Chinese Calligraphy, PSU Professor Zhizhang Shen.

                  Drawings, paintings and woodcuts

                  August 29th, 2013 by Lynn

                   Exhibitions opening in three venues at PSU in September

                  PLYMOUTH — The annual faculty exhibition, the personal and collective drawings and paintings of Jayne Adams, and Frans Masereel and the Woodcut Movement in China will all open at Plymouth State University in September. In addition, an exhibition of Nightscapes by Annette Mitchell will continue through Sept. 27.

                  2013 Faculty Exhibition
                  Karl Drerup Art Gallery,
                  Sept. 3–25
                  Opening Reception,

                  Sept. 10, 4–6 p.m.

                  Each year, PSU art faculty show their finest current work in the opening exhibition of the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. Diversity of approaches, both formal and conceptual, variety of media and their usage, personal and societal thematic statements and fine craftsmanship demonstrate the gamut of faculty involvement in their respective disciplines. This exhibition is especially important to the educational mission of the art department as the work on display sets a standard for the students throughout the year.

                  The faculty of the Department of Art at Plymouth State University are progressive artists who are prominent in New Hampshire. Their work is representative of the best of active artists in New England and they provide outstanding artistic leadership to university art students. Many disciplines are presented in this exhibition, beginning with the traditional works of painting and sculpture and continuing with ceramics, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, digital art and photography. In addition, works shown include alternative media and installation forms.

                  Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Wednesday until 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 1–4 p.m. The Gallery is closed PSU holidays.

                  Jayne Adams, Identity:
                  The Personal and the Collective
                  Drawings and Paintings
                  Silver Center for theArts,
                  Sept. 8 – Oct. 5

                  Opening Reception
                  Sept. 12, 4–6 p.m.

                  Viewers will experience the powerful and dynamic touch of the artist in her presentations of people in their natural, day-to-day moments. Adams’ inspiration is the human form, and the figure in environments, in communities, and the self. Her process involves expressive mark-making through the integration of drawing and painting and the search for just the right note. Adams has received three Currier Gallery of Art Awards from the New Hampshire Art Association and the Currier Museum. She has also received the Lacroix Award for painting, the Holland Sister’s Award and more. The Silver Center for the Arts on Main Street in Plymouth is open 8 a.m.–5 p.m. on weekdays; noon–6 p.m. on weekends and is closed on PSU holidays.

                  Lamson Library,
                  Sept. 30–Dec. 20

                  Dean of the Library David A. Beronä will curate an exhibition of works from Frans Masereel’s visit to China, with selections from his folio “China Memories” (1961), and various Chinese woodcuts from the portfolio “Woodcuts of New China” (1956). Masereel first studied at the Académie des Beaux- Arts in 1907. He started his career as a political cartoonist, where he was expected to read the news, develop a theme and create a drawing quickly, but his lifelong love of woodcut was his predominant mode of expression. Masareel created more than 50 wordless books.

                  Library hours are online at library.plymouth.edu/hours.

                  Annette Mitchell: Nightscapes
                  Lamson Library,
                  through Sept. 27

                  Nightscapes is a series of 12 paintings of sites in and around the Plymouth, New Hampshire area, painted in 2012. Mitchell used acrylic paint on archival paper to interpret local landmarks like Beyond the Bean Bakery in Plymouth, the old high school in Ashland, The Flying Monkey Movie House and Performance Center, and Huckin’s tractor barn in Holderness. The series demonstrates her love of sharp contrasts, a color palette in low natural light and her appreciation for living in New Hampshire.

                  Mitchell is perhaps best known for her printmaking process using foam block prints, but she enjoys working in a variety of media and genres including quilting, painting and drawing. She has been New Hampshire Educator of the Year and has artwork in the permanent collection of Southern New Hampshire University. Artscope Magazine selected Mitchell as one of 13 artists to profile in their March/April issue.
