Opening reception: Friday, Jan. 26, noon to 1 p.m.
Patricia Elliott Schappler, Between Us (acrylic on canvas, 2006), McIninch Gallery Collection
This exhibition features works the gallery has collected since its inauguration in February 2002. The growing collection, supported by the generosity of the Friends of the McIninch Art Gallery, features works by New Hampshire artists. Its goal is to support university curricula and to provide a source of enjoyment, enlightenment and beauty for all who visit.
The collection from which the exhibition will be selected includes works by Gerald Auten, Rick Ayotte, Judith Cassell, Michael Eastman, Lotti Jacobi, Dustan Knight, Jeanne Lachance, Omer T. Lassonde, Peter Milton, Melissa Miller, Annette Mitchell, Richard Morin, Frank Moulton, Jules Olitski, Lauren Olitski, Doug Prince, Rebecca Robinson, Clifford Smith, Gail Smuda, Carol Summers, Gerry Williams, and others.
A highlight of the exhibition will be the first showing of a recently acquired work by New Hampshire artist Patricia Elliot Schappler, entitled Between Us. It was the first-prize winner in the New Hampshire Art Association’s 2006 Omer Lassonde Juried Exhibition.
