Call for entry for art and fine crafts by UNH staff

May 20, 2013

The University Museum in Dimond Library announces its second campus-wide staff arts and fine crafts exhibition, September 13 – December 13, 2013. The exhibit will recognize our creative colleagues for work they do outside their day (or night) jobs at UNH. Original art and fine crafts in any media will be considered.

Eligible staff include all faculty (see exception) and staff, full and part-time, hourly and benefits eligible. The exception is studio arts faculty who have opportunities to exhibit their work in the UNH Museum of Art.

The small size of the University Museum restricts the number of works that can be exhibited. An anonymous jury will make selections using the blind jury process (applicants' names will be removed from the forms for the jury process). For those artists selected for participation, not more than one work will be included in the exhibition.

Applicants may submit up to two entries, must complete the Call for Entry form, and send a photo image of each entry to dale.valena@unh.edu.

All entry forms with photos must be received no later than the deadline of July 29, 2013. If you prefer, you can mail your form and photo to the University Museum, Dimond Library, 18 Library Way, Durham, NH 03824 by the July 29 deadline.

Herbert Ogden Waters exhibit now in Special Collections and Archives

May 9, 2013

UNH Special Collections and the University Museum present a hallway exhibit of the work of Herbert Odgen Waters. The exhibit includes seven prints from Special Collections and examples of the artist’s wood blocks, a loan from the UNH Museum of Art.

Herbert Ogden Waters was born in Shantou, China in 1903 and was the son of Baptist missionaries. Since 1933, except for a brief period of war service in a Providence shipyard, Herbert and his wife Bertha Waters made their home in New Hampshire. Waters lived in Warner, NH as an artist and art teacher from 1936 to 1941 in the Works Progress Administration's Federal Art Project. Later, he taught at the University of New Hampshire, at Holderness School in Plymouth, and at Alderson-Broaddus College in Phillipi, West Virginia.

Throughout a long career, Waters refined his printmaking techniques, especially in wood engraving, and explored the intimate and grand landscapes of New Hampshire from his home in Campton, NH.

The Herbert Ogden Waters exhibit will run through the summer.

Milne Special Collections/Archives/ University Museum is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 4pm during the summer. They are located on Level 1 in Dimond Library. For information call (603) 862-1081.

Traditional Jazz Series presents Michael White and the New Liberty City Jazz Band, April 1

March 21, 2013

The UNH Traditional Jazz Series presents Michael White and the New Liberty City Jazz Band on Monday, April 1 at 8pm in the Johnson Theater at the Paul Creative Arts Center.

Tickets are $8 general admission; $6 students/senior citizens and are available at the PCAC Box Office (603) 862-7222, Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., online at www.unharts.com, and at the door one hour prior to performance.

Michael White is a jazz clarinetist, bandleader, composer, jazz historian, and musical educator. A staunch jazz traditionalist, White can be heard on the 1989 album The Majesty of the Blues by Wynton Marsalis, and his own 1990 album titled Crescent City Serenade. Since 1979 he has played in the Young Tuxedo Brass Band, and during the 1980s he also led a band called The New Orleans Hot Seven.

In 1981, White founded The New Liberty City Jazz Band with the express intent of preserving the musical heritage of New Orleans. The group has performed an end-of-year concert at the Village Vanguard every year since the early 1990s.

The Traditional Jazz Concert Series is co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Library of Traditional Jazz. The library, established in 1978 by Dorothy Prescott, comprises books, recordings, and memorabilia and is housed in Dimond Library. Prescott’s generous endowment funds its activities including the Traditional Jazz Series concerts.

For more information on the Traditional Jazz Series, call the UNH Music Department at (603) 862-2404.

New Geospatial Services Center open in Dimond Library

March 7, 2013

We are happy to announce the opening of the Geospatial Services Center (GSC) in Room 337 of Dimond Library.

The GSG is available to help novice users of geographic information system (GIS) and related software, such as Google Earth. Students, as well as faculty and staff, can use the GSC to get started on a new project or, if already working on a project, to get basic level help in completing it. You do not need to be enrolled in a course to use the GSC.

Non-UNH patrons may also bring in a laptop with software preloaded and GSC staff will try to assist, though help for personal laptops is limited.

Users can seek assistance with the following:

  • Locating and downloading geospatial datasets
  • Integrating data into an existing GIS project
  • Helping manage files
  • Answering questions on basic software functionality:
    • ESRI ArcInfo GIS & plug-ins (available to UNH users)
    • Many open source GIS programs
    • Google Earth
    • ERDAS Imagine (available for UNH users)
    • Multispec
  • Making referrals for more in-depth help

A UNH ID is required to use center workstations. Computers are available during hours when the GSC is open, though users may bring their own laptops. Books in the GSC may be browsed when it is open.

Two advanced undergraduate peer tutors are available part time.

Peer tutors are scheduled for the following hours during spring semester:

  • Tuesday: 9-11 AM; 3:30-4:30 PM
  • Thursday: 9-11 AM; 1-2 PM
  • Friday: 9 AM-12 PM

Although appointments are not required, there will be sign-up sheet posted outside of 337 to reserve a time slot.

Peer tutors have been sponsored by the NHView program, a federally funded program designed to make satellite imagery more available to researchers and the public.
