PLYMOUTH, N.H.—The Plymouth State University Department of Art will present an exhibition by New York-based artist Lee Misenheimer March 6–April 7 at the Silver Center for the Arts on Main Street in Plymouth.An opening reception for Lee Misenheimer: Redeemers will be held from 4–6 p.m. March 6.

Misenheimer creates visually intense drawings, sometimes under the pseudonym, “Destroy Rock City.”

Using simple materials such as lead pencil or ballpoint pen, he creates complex drawings with intense detail. Misenheimer told one blogger that he is “soothed by the repetitive line technique he uses to create his drawings.” He is inspired by Japanese imagery and, in his own words, “organic/floral/natural textures…mushrooms…plus many ideas about air/wind/breath.”

Misenheimer earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at East Carolina University School of the arts. He has participated in both solo and group exhibitions and has contributed to numerous magazines, creating works such as the cover art for American Short Fiction, Issue 47.

Misenheimer will also make a Visiting Artist presentation at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 3 in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center.

Silver Center hours are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. –5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, noon–6 p.m.; closed most PSU holidays.
