PLYMOUTH, N.H. — More than 20 New Hampshire printmakers will present works that document the trajectory of their career, March 4–April 15 at the Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University.

Trajectory is curated by Parker Potter, who asked each of the artists to submit three works: a very recent one, one from near the start of his or her career and one from in between.

The resulting trajectories each document a unique combination of continuity and change—in media, in subject matter and in technical approaches to composition, color and texture.

“Implicitly, each of these trajectories also poses the question, ‘What is next?’” Potter said.

A law clerk for the NH Supreme Court, Potter became known on the New Hampshire printmaking scene as a juror, critic and curator in the 1990s.

He has been chair of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s gallery committee and has been a member of the League’s board of trustees.

Each year he organizes a print show at the League’s Annual Craftsmen’s Fair in Sunapee. He has curated shows for the New Hampshire Art Association, the Sharon Arts Center and Franklin Pierce Law Center, and has organized print acquisitions for the Law Center’s art collection.

His personal print collection numbers more than 600 works.

A full list of participants in “Trajectory” is available at www.plymouth.edu/gallery/2008-09/trajectory.html.

Silver Center public area hours are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, noon–6 p.m.
