Portfolio Exchange Exhibition: The Average Path Length at PSU Lamson Learning Commons March 7-April 25

PLYMOUTH — The Average Path Length 2013 portfolio exchange exhibition will be presented under the aegis of the Lamson Learning Commons Print Series at Plymouth State University March 7 through April 25.

An opening reception and artist talk by portfolio curator Fawn Atencio will be held at 4 p.m. March 10 at Lamson Learning Commons on Highland Street in Plymouth.

The exhibition presents selected works from 22 nationally and internationally noted printmakers, including Kimberly Anderson Ritchie of the PSU art faculty.
In this portfolio exchange, artists were asked to consider how they interpret path, pattern and the idea of collaboration and building new and positive print relations.
Atencio says, "Small world experiments designed by Stanley Milgrim and other researchers in the 1960s examined the size and connectedness of social networks in the US. The research offered that human interactions can be represented as paths (relationships) connecting nodes (individuals). Thus the idea of six degrees of separation; the average path length between any two people in the world is six relationships from each other."
Fawn Atencio graduated with honors from the University of Northern Colorado School of Art and Design, earning a bachelor's degree in art with a minor in environmental science. She continued her education in printmaking and drawing at Washington University in Missouri where she assisted master printer Maryanne Ellison-Simmons at the Washington University's Island Press from 1998-2000. She completed her MFA degree in 2000 and works as a full-time studio artist in Denver. Atencio's work has been shown and is in private collections internationally and nationally.

Story of Belmont postmaster's thwarting of JFK assassination to be aired beginning tonight

BELMONT — A nearly forgotten Belmont historical saga will air on a Travel Channel "Mysteries at the Museum" episode premiering Thursday, February 27 at 9 p.m. The story is about the heroism of former Postmaster and community leader Thomas Murphy – widely credited as thwarting a 1960 assassination attempt on then President-elect John F. Kennedy. Pauline "Polly" Murphy, his widow, provided family files and memorabilia for the filming, shot on site last summer at the Belmont Public Library. The segment also interviews veteran political journalist and author Jeff Greenfield, whose book "Then Everything Changed", brought the incident to light.

MetroCast Travel Channel 70 and TravelHD 770 schedules show the segment running nearly 20 times through March 7. Program promotion is featured on www.travelchannel.com/tv-shows/mysteries-at-the-museum
