PLYMOUTH, N.H. — New Hampshire and Vermont artists represented by Two Rivers Printmaking Studio have works on display at Lamson Library and Learning Commons on the campus of Plymouth State University October 26-January 29.
The studio’s 2008 Portfolio Show comprises works by 26 artist members, each of whom contributed prints or artist’s proofs demonstrating a broad range of old and new printmaking techniques.
Exhibitors in this show are Jennifer Anderson, Ian Baldwin, Lois Masor Beatty, Penelope Bennett, Susan Airris Berry, Amparo Carvajal-Hufschmid, Jennifer Cintron, Betsey Garand, Daniel Gottsegen, Rachel Gross and Louise Hamlin.
Also Ann Audley Holloway, Debra Jayne, Jenevieve Alyssa Johnson, Judy Lampe, Carol Lippman, Nori Lupfer, Elizabeth Mayor, Mary Mead, Josh Melrod, Sue Schiller, Rebekah A.L. Tolley, Sherri Hancock-Tomek, Sheryl Trainor, Nancy Wightman and Bert Yarborough.
“We are really excited to display these remarkable prints,” said David Beronä, dean of the library and academic support services. “Normally our print portfolios are kept in our Special Collections and available for private viewing. The quality and inspiring subject matter of these prints, however, need to be seen by a wider public, which is the reason I wanted the prints framed and on display. What a great opportunity to support the work of living and breathing printmakers in our area.”

Two Rivers Printmaking Studio is a nonprofit teaching and learning workspace located in White River Junction, Vt., that is run cooperatively by its member artists. The studio hosts classes, exhibitions and lectures by artists, curators and collectors to help build interest in the art and history of printmaking.
