PLYMOUTH — The Silver Center of the Arts at Plymouth State University will host an exhibition of prints by more than 20 New Hampshire-based printmakers October 16-December 13.
Artists who have revisited an earlier work and re-imagined a theme that has held for them to this day will present their new works. "The work will be one that engages that theme while rethinking size, color, new composition or process, or some other variable," according to exhibition curator Parker Potter.
A reception will be held Friday, October 18 from 4–6 p.m. at the Silver Center.
A law clerk for the New Hampshire 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.
Potter and his wife, Nancy Jo Chabot, have collected prints, primarily editioned prints by New Hampshire printmakers, for more than 20 years. Their collection runs the gamut from works by students to works by internationally known artists.
The Silver Center, on Main Street in Plymouth, is open Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m, Friday 8 a.m.–5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, noon–6 p.m. Silver is closed on PSU holidays.

GILFORD — Zoom Fitness in Gilford will be holding a yard sale this Saturday with all of the proceeds to be donated to the Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region.
"I wanted to have a yard sale for charity, the women quickly got on board and the Santa Fund is a great organization to support", said Zoom Fitness Manager Kim Gustafson. "Many area residents aren't aware that the Santa Fund helps people in need year round".
The Santa Fund is perhaps best known for providing new outerwear and boots for local children as winter approaches. They also help children and families with other financial support throughout the year. "Our unofficial slogan is "No matter the season, when there's a reason, the Santa Fund is here to help", said Janet Brough, Santa Fund co-chair.
Zoom Fitness is a circuit training workout club owned, managed and for women. "This is a 30-minute work out designed to fit into the schedules of women who want to be able to zoom in, do their routine and zoom out", said Gustafson.
The charity yard sale is indoor, rain or shine, Saturday October 12 from 8 a.m, to 2 p.m. Located in Paugus Bay Plaza, turn right after China Bistro with plenty of parking in the back. 100% of money raised will be donated to the Santa Fund. For more information call Kim Gustafson at 455-8507.
