The SNHU Graphic Design: 8th Annual Student Exhibit

Linda Bond
Shadow War

Shadow War

February 27 through April 5, 2014 (closed March 3 to March 8)

Opening Reception: Rescheduled for Thursday, March 20th from 5 to 7pm

With recent drawings and installation work, Linda Bond examines the use of drones as agents of war. Her exhibition, Shadow War, is comprised of projects derived from the printed news. Scanning, reprinting, and transferring information, content is blurred and reformed. This process of transformation and assembly becomes a means of clarification.  Abstraction becomes concrete. Individual elements collect in improvised or deliberate formations to create site specific installations.

Composites: Painting through Photography

January 16 through February 22, 2014

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 16, 2014 5-7 pm

This exhibit examines the dependence on the photographic image to frame how we see things as well as the way in which painting can transform those observations through the labor of investigation and raises the question “what is more ‘authentic’ in the age of Photoshop in both mass and digital media?” This new body of work calls into question what viewers bring to an image and how they visualize their experiences.

Merrill Comeau
Remains of the Day

Remains of the Day

October 24 through December 14, 2013 (closed Nov. 25 through Nov. 30, 2013)

Opening Reception: October 24, 2013 5-7 pm

Merill Comeau will inhabit the McIninch Art Gallery as a working studio to create a site-specific installation. Comeau will enlist participation from students, staff, and faculty to identify and to collect seemingly useless materials regularly discarded in the course of campus life. These materials will be altered, arranged, and installed on the gallery walls consistent with Comeau’s practice of creating something beautiful out of discarded and unwanted objects.

Leslie Fry
Archaeology Through the Looking Glass

Archaeology Through the Looking Glass

September 12 through October 19, 2013

Opening Reception: September 12, 2013 5-6:30 pm

Leslie Fry sees everyday objects as artifacts from another world. Her sculpture incorporates imaginary ruins created with these artifacts. Although ruins are most often thought of as  the remains of past civilizations, souvenirs of former lives, memento mori, Fry is also interested in the ruins created by natural disasters, real estate schemes, and the ravages of war. Her archaeological perspective on resurrection from destruction of civilizations reflects ongoing natural cycles of decay and new growth.
