Through December 11—2010 Faculty Exhibition. Karl Drerup Art Gallery. An important connection between faculty and students occurs when faculty exhibit their own work. This annual exhibition presents an opportunity for students and members of the PSU community to become better acquainted with art department faculty outside the classroom, as artists working in a variety of media. Faculty welcome viewers into the private realm of the teacher as artist.

The Drerup Gallery is open Monday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. and Wednesday, 10 a.m.–8 p.m., closed most PSU holidays.

Gallery talk: Panel discussion December 1,5 p.m. Draper and Maynard BuildingRoom 314. Discussion of questions submitted by guests to the show, moderated by Department of English Chair, Liz Ahl.

Through December 5—Old Wives’ Tales: What Women Know. Silver Center for the Arts. The Women’s Caucus for Art–New Hampshire Chapter presents a juried exhibition that includes a wide range of approaches to the theme of women’s knowledge, knowledge that is passed through the generations, from woman to woman, or gained through experience. Not limited to old wives, this exhibition provides a forum for each artist to bring her own unique perspective and response to the title, Old Wives’ Tales: What Women Know.
