Plymouth, N.H.— The Plymouth State University Department of Art Visiting Artist Series will present a public talk by New York painter, printmaker and artist-educator Gaetano LaRoche at 4 p.m. November 1 in Draper and Maynard Building Room 314.

LaRoche has exhibited broadly and his prints and drawings have been published in Lilies and Cannonballs Review.

LaRoche earned an MAT in art education from Rhode Island College and a BFA from The Cooper Union in New York. He has taught in New York City and Wisconsin. His work is in public collections at the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C, Columbia University, N.Y., Teachers College, N.Y., Alexander Mitchell Elementary School, Milwaukee, Wis. and Bristol Public Schools, Bristol, R.I.

The visiting artist initiative expands the Department of Art tradition of bringing fine artists and graphic designers to PSU during the academic year, and for extended summer workshops at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Cynthia Vascak, chair of the department, says the program cultivates relationships between artists and designers of national repute or with specialized areas of expertise, within the PSU and regional communities. “The emphasis is to build a network of professional relationships for our students that will enrich our programs, curriculum and mission, and provide deepened cultural access to the regional community,” Vascak said.
