June 7 – July 13, 2014
Grant Drumheller / George Lloyd / Scott Schnepf
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 7, 5-7 pm
Grant Drumheller is a prolific painter who has balanced a full artistic career while teaching at the University of New Hampshire. He received his degrees from Boston University where he studied with Reed Kay, Philip Guston and James Weeks.These inventive paintings have the vantage point of “from above” and his figures are drawn from both memory and observation. Interiors of museums, beaches, piazzas, public parks, where the day-to-day gatherings and activities of people take place, these are the experiences Drumheller magnifies.
Paintings and Drawings – A Survey
George Lloyd is a dynamic painter with ties to both New England and the West Coast. After receiving his degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design and Yale University he moved to the San Francisco Bay area where he participated in a drawing group with noted Bay Area artists Elmer Bischoff and Joan Brown. The group was committed to working with the human figure, which has remained a constant theme for Lloyd even while exploring architectural, geometric and other themes. This survey includes works from the 1970’s, several released for the first time, as well as selected paintings, watercolors and drawings through the present.
Read Dan Kany’s review of George Lloyd’s exhibition.
The imagery in Scott Schnepf’s prints is dominated by still life, rooted in the things and places that are most familiar to him. His still life set-ups are arrangements of ordinary objects that are dramatically lit giving the final work an atmosphere of grandeur and spiritualism. Scott received his MFA from Kansas State University. Since 1981 he has been a Professor of printmaking, painting and drawing at the University of New Hampshire while simultaneously pursuing his own work. “Marking Time” may be a reference to the eve of his retirement from teaching but more likely indicating the exactitude and time commitment to creating these exquisite etchings, engravings and woodcuts.
