WOLFEBORO — The Art Place on Main Street Wolfeboro will celebrate the beginning of their featured and guest artist's series with local artist Valerie Schurer Christle which will run from Friday, April 24 through Wednesday, May 13.
Christle, originally from England, immigrated to the states and settled in the Lakes Region in 1980. Her varied and multimedia work embodies her intensely focused interest in color, patterns, textures, layers, transparencies and reflections. She is a self-taught artist with a distinctive perspective. The viewer is sure to discover abstractions within her realism or realism within her abstractions. This layered quality is her intent, she enjoys hearing from her audience what they themselves discover in the work, as well as sharing her own experience.
In Valerie's own words, "It was fascinating to be on hand at the gallery to discuss peoples reactions to different pieces, to see what attracted them to certain works. People were surprised at the diversity of media used and the variety of subject matter."
Most recently her images have appeared on the cover of the GWAC current issue and the program cover for the Friends of Music 2015. For more information, call The Art Place at 603-569-6159.

PLYMOUTH — More than 160 Plymouth State University students will present original research in the sciences, arts and humanities on Friday, April 24 from 2-7 p.m. at the fourth annual Student Showcase of Excellence event.
Thad Guldbrandsen, PSU vice provost for research and engagement, says the Showcase is a great reflection of those who support students in their work: faculty mentors, support staff at PSU, external funders, committed community partners, and students' families. "Hands-on learning and engaged research is a hallmark of a PSU education," Guldbrandsen said. "During this event, you'll see a wide array of our students' scholarly pursuits, and much of that is leading-edge research–a clear example of our students in action."
Some of the projects are offered in connection with the National Institute of Health's IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) grant to increase opportunities for faculty and student research. Community members are invited to attend this free event at the Hartman Union Building (HUB) on PSU's main campus.
