Plymouth Artist’s Work Currently on Exhibit in “Foam is Where the Art Is: Prints Created from Polystyrene Foam Plates” at New Hampton School’s Galletly Gallery

NEW HAMPTON, NH. – The work of Annette Mitchell is currently on display through January 31. The public (AND FACULTY AND STAFF!) is most cordially invited to meet the artist at the opening reception on Friday, January 12, 2001, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Annette Mitchell, Professor of Art, is head of the drawing program at Plymouth State College. She is known for her creative exploration in the areas of printmaking, painting, and art quilting. Her workshop topics include “Alternative Drawing Tools”, “Anti-Stress Art Techniques for Young Mothers” ( so would any of you young mothers at NHS be interested in having her give this workshop?!) , and “Introduction to Foam Plate Printing”. Annette has recently written a book about her polystyrene foam plate printing technique which will be published this year. Her book, Foam is Where the Art Is, outlines the process of her newly pioneered medium. Annette writes reviews for Art New England Magazine and was honored in 1990 with New Hampshire’s Art Educator of the Year Award.

Mitchell believes that plate printing with polystyrene foam has many advantages over more traditional plates. Foam plates are lightweight, receptive to many surface treatments, and do not require the use of a press for the printing process. Time formerly spent on plate/stone preparation and tending a press can now be used for the exploration of ideas and the artwork itself. Best of all, this method encourages the expression of the spontaneous rhythms of one’s personal drawing style.

The Galletly Gallery is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, please contact Amy Curry, Director of Fine Arts at New Hampton School, at (603) 744-5401 . 238.
