An art exhibit at Phillips Exeter Academy of digital images and Chinese art from 1710 to 2007 will include photos by Doug Prince who recently retired from UNH photographic services.

“Then and Now: Chinese Art from 1710 to 2007 and Contemporary Digital Images” opens July 8 at the Lamont Gallery in Exeter and runs through July 30. A reception will be held July 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The Lamont Gallery at Phillips Exeter Academy is located in the Frederick R. Mayer Art Center on Tan Lane and is free and open to the public.

“Then and Now: Chinese Art from 1710 to 2007 and Contemporary Digital Images, Works courtesy of China 2000, New York and Photographer Douglas Prince”

“In this exhibition, photographer Douglas Prince’s elegantly (and digitally) distorted image, ‘Magnolia-14’ is adjacent to the ink and color scroll “Mountain Landscape” created by Shao Yixuan in 1953. We are fortunate to have access to these and the other works in the Lamont Gallery, due to the generosity of noted New York gallery owners and collectors, Karen and Leon Wender, and New Hampshire’s own Douglas Prince,” says Karen Burgess Smith, director of the Lamont Gallery.

A photographer born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, Prince’s images are described as photo-sculptures—blended, visual creations of metaphysical and natural depictions, each evolved from the creative medium of digital imaging. Some of his floral images for this exhibition are a contemporary take on Chinese scrolls and portray a variety of traditional and contemporary approaches to Chinese art.


Summer gallery hours in July are Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; closed Saturday through Monday. For further information, contact the Lamont Gallery at (603) 777-3461.
