Manchester, N.H. (Oct. 2, 2006) - The McIninch Art Gallery at Southern New Hampshire University will present “Winslow Homer Wood Engravings from the Collection of Dr. and Mrs. James Grace.” The show will run from Nov. 3 through Dec.14 and is free and open to the public. A public opening reception will be held Friday, Nov. 3, from noon to 1 p.m.  

These images by one of America’s foremost artists shed light on the Civil War and on daily life in the mid-19th century. They present scenes, themes and techniques that Homer would use in some of his most important paintings. Printed in popular magazines of the day, they were the common person’s art gallery. 

Dr. Grace is a retired SNHU business law professor.

The McIninch Art Gallery at SNHU, which was made possible by a generous gift from the McIninch Foundation, is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Thursday evenings from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sundays and university holidays, as well as from Sunday, Nov. 19, through Sunday, Nov. 30. All gallery events are free and open to the public.

Please call Dr. Robert Craven at 603.629.4622, e-mail m.gallery@snhu.edu or visit http://www.snhu.edu/908.asp  online for additional information.
