From the Center: Tom Driscoll opens March 28

March 6th, 2007 by Adam

Associate Professor Tom Driscoll’s art work is about personal insights gained from living and making art. During a recent sabbatical leave, he explored new ideas, forms and types of spaces. The tangible results of that exploration will be exhibited at PSU’s Karl Drerup Art Gallery March 28 – April 7, beginning with an opening reception from 4 – 6 p.m. March 28.

Driscoll said this body of work represents a period of artistic growth and evolution. “My journey as an artist is one of self-discovery; with each new piece I gain a little more insight into who I am and what I believe,” he said. abstract painting

“There are many experiments with surface, with light and with relationships between forms contained within the layers of paint. I have faith that maintaining a sense of play, awareness of what is happening in front of me, and openness to possibilities will lead me to the next level of my development.”

As a working artist, Driscoll has participated in numerous refereed, nonrefereed and one-person exhibitions and has served as a juror for Lakes Region High School, the Laconia Art Association and Plymouth Friends of the Arts.

In addition to teaching at PSU, Driscoll has taught at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, White Mountain School in Littleton, and Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Plymouth State University and a Master of Fine Arts at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. He is represented by the McGowan Fine Art Gallery in Concord.
