PLYMOUTH, N.H.-The annual Faculty Exhibition at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery will lead off a fall full of visual arts experiences at Plymouth State University.

This always popular event showcases faculty as artists and opens a dialogue with students and the community.A reception with the artists was held Wednesday, September 10 at the Drerup Gallery.

“The nature of an educational environment makes the membership of an art department an unusually diverse group of artists. The flow of new people and ideas constantly adds to the mix as young faculty arrive and more senior members share their deep experience,” said Gallery Director Catherine Amidon.

“For many of us, there are special works that are dear to us and which we keep in our personal collection. They hold our memories and life stories and more,” said Department Chair Cynthia Vascek.
