Drawings by faculty and lecturers in the Department of Art and Art History are on view in the Visual Resource Center in the Paul Creative Arts Center through the end of this academic year. The exhibition is part of the department’s “Year of Drawing,” which explores the importance and impact of drawing as part of artistic process. Drawing in its various forms is displayed, from conceptual designs for 3D art pieces to stand alone pieces, such as an etching.
Drawing is an integral part of teaching art at UNH, with around two hundred students from various majors taking drawing courses each semester. Drawing classes range from Introduction to Drawing, where students tackle the basics of observational perspective problems, to Intermediate Drawing, which moves on to the human figure and mixed media, and Life Drawing, with its more intensive focus on drawing the human form.
Participating faculty and lecturers include Brian Chu, Grant Drumheller, Rick Fox, Craig Hood, Jennifer Moses, Scott Schnepf, Don Williams, and Leah Woods. Also included are two works from faculty members’ personal collections: Stacy Mohammed by Lennart Anderson and Subway by Alexi Worth.
Student work from drawing classes are always on view in the hallways of the Paul Creative Arts Center.
The Visual Resource Center is located in A-205E in the Paul Creative Arts Center, and is open Monday-Friday 8 am – 5 pm.
