The McIninch Art Gallery at Southern New Hampshire University will present “Interpretations: Jeanne Lachance and Mark Hudon” from Feb. 24 through March 22. A public opening reception will be held Friday, Feb. 23, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.  

Lachance, a well-known New Hampshire artist and teacher, will interpret in oil paintings the digital photographs of her son, Mark Hudon. Hudon, who lives in Oregon, creates sweeping, often semi-abstract images of the western landscape. An expert rock climber, Hudon is particularly interested in geological formations and their often spectacular colors. He also creates dramatic images of the West’s vast open spaces. 

Lachance is a member of the East Colony Art group in Manchester. Like Hudon, she loves both form and color. In this case, she has allowed herself to respond intuitively to her son’s images. 

“I want to just have fun with this,” she said, “and show my joy over interpreting my son’s photographs.” 

The pairs of images will be hung side by side in the gallery, said the gallery’s director, Dr. Robert Craven. 

“It’s a privilege to work with such a respected figure as Jeanne Lachance. When I saw the clarity and power of Hudon’s photographs I knew that her interpretations would be stunning,” Craven said. “Next to one another they take on a whole new dimension.”

The gallery, which was made possible by a generous gift from the McIninch Foundation, is open Monday through Saturday 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. All gallery events are free and open to the public.
