Graduate Painters Present New Work At The Art Gallery

May 2, 2007

An exhibition showcasing the artistic talents of two graduate students receiving a Masters of Fine Arts degree in painting from UNH’s department of art and art history will be on view at The Art Gallery beginning Tuesday, May 8.

The “2007 M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition II” showcases the works of artists Michelle Arnold of Wheaton, Ill., and Jamie Bowman of Dannemora, N.Y. A preview reception with the artists will take place on Monday, May 7, from 5 – 7 p.m.

Arnold’s oil paintings capture the scale and grandeur of the art and architecture she encountered while living and working in Italy. Her shadowy depictions evoke a sense of quiet solitude that emerges from once-crowded spaces.

Bowman’s drawings and paintings reflect the fleeting quality of memories. Her landscapes, portraits, and still-life images are based on observation, but, like memories, they hover between clarity and fading obscurity.

Arnold and Bowman will present a gallery talk on Wednesday, May 9, at noon in The Art Gallery, offered as part of the weekly ArtBreak series. The “2007 M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition II” will be on view through May 19 and is funded in part by the Department of Art and Art History.

Running concurrently is the “2007 Senior B.A. and B.F.A. Exhibition,” featuring the work of five candidates for the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, including: Jason Bombaci of Concord, N.H. (painting); Maggie Cedarstrom of Meredith, N.H. (painting); Christopher Hobbs of Hampstead, N.H. (drawing and painting); Ryan Murphy of Cambridge, Mass. (painting); and Nathaniel Raymond of Exeter, N.H. (printmaking).

Both graduate and undergraduate exhibitions are funded in part by the Friends of The Art Gallery.

The Art Gallery presents exhibitions and programs open to the public free of charge and is open during the academic year, Monday-Wednesday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 1-5 p.m.; closed Fridays.
