PSU art faculty Tom Driscoll’s explorations of the sense of place: geographically, temporally and psychologically. There are two parallel bodies of work in this show: the highly textured, gestural pieces explore non-verbal creative impulses leading to self-discovery, while the collage/map pieces merge more formal and conceptual approaches to image making. Driscoll recognizes and embraces a variety of intersections between these two methodologies.
Monday, March 10, 7pm - Who Does She Think She Is?

In addition, a fifth level, one of completely independent work, is juried by itself. This category is in keeping with the tradition in the art department of encouraging and nurturing independent, self-directed creativity. Exhibiting March 25-April 13 at Karl Drerup
Exhibiting through April 11 at Silver Center - MOMMA
Four progressive New Hampshire women artists reveal their insights into the concept of mother and motherhood, exploring themes from the visceral to the emotional to the intellectual, responding to a society that sentimentalizes mothers but does not always respect them.
