Student Art Exhibit in Dimond Library

November 21, 2013

Student considers her canvas painting outside in Italy

There is a student art exhibition in the Dimond Library reference area on Level 3: UNH in Italy — Summer Painting Intensive.

This exhibit presents a selection of En Plein Air paintings from the students who participated in the 5 week intensive painting program in the summer of 2013. The works on exhibit range from depictions of the architecture in the cultivated Italian landscape to nighttime views of the old city of Ascoli, to abstract works inspired by the observed landscape.

The exhibition was curated by Jennifer Moses and Rick Fox of the UNH Department of Art and Art History. Professor Moses and Mr. Fox accompanied the 2013 program in Italy. It will remain on display until Spring break.
