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.

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.”

The exhibition presents selected works from 22 nationally and internationally noted printmakers, including Kimberly Anderson Ritchie of the PSU art faculty.

March 25, 2014 - March 8, 2015

In its newest exhibition, Plymouth State University’s Museum of the White Mountains explores connections between geological history and recreation in the White Mountains. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Garlick, a New Hampshire-based writer and science educator.

The exhibition features ultra-high resolution panoramic photographs (Gigapans) of Cannon Cliff, the Franconia Ridge and the east side of Mt. Washington. These panoramas span nearly entire walls of the gallery and are featured in a touch-screen digital exhibit.

The exhibition includes topics like the connection of a geologic event such as a landslide and how that event precipitates activities such as backcountry skiing and ice climbing. It also explains the impact of the Ice Age on the region, and the science behind the formation and eventual destruction of the Old Man of the Mountain.

The museum, located at 34 Highland Street in Plymouth, is open for regular hours Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; Wednesday 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public for self-guided tours. Contact Libby Griffiths at (603) 535-3210 or egriffiths@plymouth.edu to discuss and schedule group visits.

Silver Center for the Arts -  Graphic Design
Karl Drerup Art Gallery - Studio Art

Sponsored by the Karl Drerup Art Gallery


The BFA degrees in studio art and graphic design are intense, highly focused professional programs. Throughout the year, studio art majors delve into personal themes, motifs, and media to achieve a mature body of work, culminating in the selection of work featured in this threshold exhibit at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. Graphic design majors create and define a fictitious company and spend the year producing a broad range of applications including logos, stationery, advertisements, posters, pamphlets, and publications. These materials are displayed in the Silver Center for the Arts atrium. BFA students in both programs are mentored by selected faculty members, although all faculty participate in critiques and individual dialog with the students throughout the experience.

Reception Tuesday, April 22, 4-6pm
