PSU Faculty Art Exhibit opens Wednesday

PLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery and Exhibitions Program at Plymouth State University will present the 2014 Faculty Art Exhibition Wednesday, September 3 through Thursday, October 2 at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery on North Main Street in Plymouth. An opening reception will be held from 4–6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 10 in the gallery.
“The faculty exhibit is a wonderfully popular show with excellent work by our talented faculty—it always has something for everyone in a variety of media including ceramic, photography, mixed media, painting and design,” Robinson said.
Photographer John Anderson is creating an installation in a space newly titled “Karl’s Shoebox” after gallery namesake Karl Drerup who founded the Department of Art at Plymouth State. Robinson describes the Shoebox as “a small, enclosed space in the corner of the main gallery that will be used this year for shorter-term exhibits that are interactive, innovative and invite a closer look.”
In this instance, Anderson will install panoramic photographs on the walls and ceiling of the space that will give the viewer a sense of being inside a New Hampshire covered bridge. Anderson perceives covered bridges in New Hampshire as historic treasures that connect and join the land across a river, allowing families to be joined, commerce and travel to happen and communities to expand.
“The historical importance of bridges, their engineering significance and the their settings among beautiful landscapes all add to their interest to me,” Anderson says.
The Faculty Exhibition will include unique artworks including a large wall drawing by Kimberly Anderson Ritchie, a 16-foot-long sculpture by Philip Lonergan, and large photographs by new PSU art faculty member Scott Bulger. Other contributing faculty artists are Annette Mitchell, Nick Sevigney, Michael Heffernan, Kathi Smith, Pam Anneser, Penny Huynen, Jason Swith, Terry Downs, Tom Driscoll, Bill Haust and Carol Jowdy.
Following a gallery talk led by faculty from 4–5 p.m. on Wednesday, September 17, gallery fellow Hannah Smith will introduce the first Jammin’ at Karl’s music event at 5:30 p.m. in the gallery. PSU senior Melodey Rose Mathews, a songwriter, singer and guitarist (and ukulele) will perform some of her own songs and covers of other artists’ works.
Lights, Camera, KDAG!, a new film series, will premier Saturday, October 11 at noon, in conjunction with the exhibition And Now Behind Curtain #2. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Wednesday 10 a.m.–8 p.m. and Saturday 1–4 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sundays and PSU holidays. Information about the Karl Drerup Art Gallery is online at Plymouth.edu/gallery.
