Photography Through the Trees
An Exhibit Featuring Photographs by John Anderson
June 27 – September 7, 2018
On View at Silver Center for the Arts lobby

Opening Reception: July 12, at 6:30pm

Trees define the state of New Hampshire. What was once a great old growth forest fueled the industrial revolution, and has now regrown to one of the most beautiful forests in the world. New Hampshire is also home to one of the largest collections of covered bridges. Made of the very forests they are nestled within. These relics of a past era stand as a testament to the builders, and the forests from which they are created. Photography Through The Trees illustrates both the covered bridges, and the White Mountain National Forest.

Opening Reception: September 25, from 5-7pm

Celebrating the local artist’s life with a selection of the meditative, and vibrant paintings by Christopher Kressy (1936-2016). A color-filled feast that will enrich and inspire. An active faculty member at PSC/PSU from 1968 to his retirement in 1998, Kressy coordinated the painting program, served as department chair and was instrumental in the creation of the BFA studio degree. He was admired and respected by his students for his quiet demeanor and thoughtful guidance. He viewed his studio work, teaching, spiritual practice and life in general as opportunities for creative expression and did not draw distinctions between them as separate components of his being.
