Printmaking Students Organize Exhibition
KEENE, N.H. 11/22/02 hOURS, an exhibition by students from the advanced printmaking course at Keene State College, will open on Monday, Dec. 9, at 5 p.m., in the former Amer Electric storefront at 2 Eagle Court, behind Good Fortune off Main Street in Keene.
According to Rosemarie Bernardi, associate professor of art and the course instructor, the works exhibited will be non-traditional styles of printmaking including installation-oriented pieces, monotypes, and paintings that incorporate printed elements.
This exhibition gives the students a chance to have some control and professional responsibility for the display of their work, said Bernardi. Its also exciting that these young artists are able to present their work to the Keene community.
The artists from the Alternative Methods in Printmaking course are Kate Airey, Tara Cram, Jamie Crockett, Alison Davis, Charles Langille, Greg Ponte, Brian Paquette, Kathy Mullen, and Stephanie Wright.
Part of the students course work was to plan and organize the exhibition, Bernardi said. The students began by renting commercial space from Krista McKenna, owner of the 2 Eagle Court space. The students have also created display space in the building, designed announcements, negotiated wall space, organized the opening reception and secured insurance for the exhibition.
For the past three weeks, theyve taken time away from other jobs to come to the space and work on preparations, Bernardi said. And, a lot of time has been spent completing art works for the exhibition.
The public is invited to see the work and meet the artists at their opening reception on Monday. Hours runs through Friday, Dec. 13, from 5 to 8 p.m.
