The NHIA Curatorial Class presents “The Wandering Mind: An Exploration of the Subconscious” at the Sharon Arts Center, 30 Grove St., Peterborough, NH. The exhibition runs from May 1 to May 11 and an Opening Reception will be held on Friday May 3, from 5-7 pm. The show features both 2D and 3D works of 14 artists from around the country. Each artist was chosen by The Institute’s Curatorial Class, taught by Alison Williams, for the dream-like quality and use of the subconscious in the work.
Artists represented in this exhibit include: Kim Bernard, Jesse Cloutier, Jennifer Ellwood, Sarah Hutt, Greg Kitterle, Sarah Ann Loreth, Michael J. Palladino, Stacy Latt Savage, Joyce Silverstone, Erin Sweeney, Joann Tarlin, and Adelaide Tyrol.
“In some form or another, many artists find themselves inspired by the peculiarity of dreams and dreaming. From one artist’s desire to visually emulate the imagery of a vivid dream, to another’s dreamlike moment of inspiration in which they place the perfect brushstroke, dreams can affect art in minuscule to significant ways.
When people dream they are in a strange, uncontrolled state of mind. Many artists seek out a similar, semi-unconscious state within themselves while working. A dream-like state is a unique mindset that artists often find themselves in during artistic creation and many may deliberately enter this state to feature or highlight the individualistic intuitive process itself.
This exhibition attempts to showcase the various and peculiar ways in which artwork so often correlates to that strange process we call dreaming.”

Artist Nancy Lefko will offer a one-day workshop titled “Vintage Vignettes” on Sat., Mar. 16 from 10 am to 2 pm. This workshop will explore ways in which collage and mixed media can transform a canvas into a tribute to a special someone, to a life well-lived. Using ephemera, photos, and a variety of art media, a personal story will be told. Techniques that instantly “age” pieces to create a time-worn effect will be demonstrated, and there will be a focus on texture, design, color, and composition.
From Mar. 20 to April 3 Lefko will teach a 3-week class in “Mixed Media Art Journals,” to be held on Wednesdays from 10 am to 1 pm. Students will venture into the world of visual journaling, an expressive outlet and playground for creativity, and explore a variety of techniques and materials while creating art for art’s sake–art that is uniquely “you.” Participants will keep an artful record of special events or travels as they explore journaling “on the go.” All levels of experience are welcome.
On Sat., May 4, Lefko will lead another one-day workshop titled “Found Object Mixed Media,” which will be held from 10 am to 2 pm. Students will explore the richness of design, dimension, found objects, and textural elements to create interest and intrigue, while learning how a subdued palette imbues a sense of calm and serenity. Vintage items and ephemera, tea-stained cheesecloth, buttons, hardware, string or whatever the participants desire will add to the rich background created with acrylic paints, inks, and papers. There is no prerequisite for this workshop.

Peterborough, NH — The Sharon Arts Center will hold a series of informational Open Houses in February and March at their Exhibition Gallery, 30 Grove St., Peterborough, to answer questions about their new Masters of Fine Arts degree programs held in conjunction with the New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA), Manchester.
Degrees will be available in Visual Arts, Photography, Creative Writing, and Writing for Stage and Screen. All of the degree programs will be offered in a “low-residency” plan, which means that students will meet in June and January for
five 10-day intensive gatherings with faculty and various guest artists,
while returning to their homes and maintaining contact with artistic “mentors” throughout the four semesters of the 2-year program. All of the 10-day residencies
will be held in Peterborough

Upcoming Open House informational sessions will be held on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 10 am to noon; Tuesday, Feb. 19 from 6 to 8 pm; Saturday, Mar. 16 from 10 am to noon; and Tuesday, Mar. 19 from 6 to 8 pm.
“We’re very excited about this new opportunity for artists in this area and nationally,” said Sharon Arts Center Executive Director Keri Wiederspahn. “The low-residency MFA program is a direct outgrowth of our recent merger with the New Hampshire Institute of Art.”
The goal of the low-residency MFA programs, Wiederspahn said, is to “cultivate artists who understand, engage, and evolve into the professional field they have embraced. Each student will graduate from NHIA’s MFA program with a comprehensive awareness of the world of art; an understanding of their role in that world; life-long artistic conceptual, creative, professional and intellectual goals; and the skills, expertise, and support mechanisms required to complete and exceed these goals.”
According to information on the NHIA website, in each 10-day residency “students will spend time in groups as well as individually, discussing, critiquing and exploring the meaning behind their work with faculty, visiting artists and other professionals. This discussion will be supported by historical and contemporary theoretical and cultural study as well as rigorous personal research. Students will leave each residency inspired by critique and discussion, with an individual, measured yet challenging direction designed for the semester ahead. The residencies are student based; faculty and other professionals are dedicated to assisting students in the theoretical and technical development of their work. Throughout the degree program, students are given personal, individual care and guidance”
The objective of each faculty member, Wiederspahn said, is to help students “dig deep into the meaning of their work and create a passionate work ethic that will sustain them through each semester and on into their professional life.”

Dinotopia: The Fantastical Art of James Gurney has been organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, proudly exhibited by the New Hampshire Institute of Art
NHIA – MANCHESTER, NH—
Breathe deep, seek peace, Dinotopia fans, and don’t miss Norman Rockwell Museum’s traveling exhibition Dinotopia: The Fantastical Art of James Gurney exhibited by the New Hampshire Institute of Art. The exhibition will run from Wednesday, Feb. 20 through Wednesday, Mar. 13, 2013.
Celebrate the opening of this exciting exhibit on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at 5 pm followed by James Gurney’s lecture: Worldbuilding: How to Develop a Fantasy Universe at 6:30 pm. The opening is free and open to the public. Gurney’s lecture is part of the Institute’s Distinguished American Artists Discussing Art lecture series and the cost to attend is $20.
From the soothing, restorative environment of Waterfall City to the hidden wonders of Chandara, acclaimed author and illustrator James Gurney’s magical Dinotopian world comes to life in this enchanting exhibition that features 22 original paintings from the best-selling illustrated books Dinotopia: A Land Apart From Time (1992), Dinotopia: The World Beneath (1995), and Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara (2007), and presents fascinating examples of the illustrator’s creative process, including reference materials, and a handmade scale-model.
Inspired by archaeology, lost civilizations, and the art of illustration, Gurney’s Dinotopia, an extraordinary place where humans and dinosaurs live in harmony, fuses fantasy with realism and scientific accuracy. “The thing I love about dinosaurs is that they are on that balance point between fantasy and reality,” says Gurney. “It might be hard to believe that mermaids and dragons really existed, but we know that dinosaurs did―we can see their footprints and skeletons but we can’t photograph them or see them, except in our imagination.”
The Dinotopia storyline chronicles the adventures and remarkable experiences of Professor Arthur Denison and his son Will on Dinotopia, a mysterious “lost” island inhabited by dinosaurs and shipwrecked travelers. The faraway land of Dinotopia― wholly the product of Gurney’s fertile imagination, scientific knowledge and meticulous artistic ability―is a civilization like no other. The society has its own language, alphabet (dinosaur footprints that correspond to each letter of the Roman alphabet), colorful festivals and parades. The lively cast of characters includes the inquisitive Professor Denison; Will and Sylvia, the adventurous young Skybax riders-in-training; the devious curmudgeon Lee Crabb; the beautiful musician Oriana Nascava; and a multilingual, diplomatic Protoceratops named Bix.
“We are honored to present this exciting collection of original works by James Gurney,” said New Hampshire Institute of Art Illustration Chair Jim Burke. “This is t the first of what we hope will be many collaborations with the Norman Rockwell Museum.”
THE MAN BEHIND DINOTOPIA
James Gurney lives with his family in New York State’s Hudson Valley. He was born on June 14, 1958, in Glendale, California. As a young boy, he found it difficult to find books on dinosaurs, a subject that always captivated him. A childhood museum visit provided his first encounter with the skeleton of a formidable Allosaurus, leading him to imagine the dinosaur skeletons “stepping off of their platforms and tip-toeing through the hallways at night,” returning to their post by daybreak.
Gurney’s youthful daydreams inspired an interest in archaeology and lost civilizations. The artist recalls many hours spent excavating his suburban backyard for arrowheads and “even a lost temple.” During college he majored in anthropology at the University of California at Berkeley, where he received a B.A. in 1979 with Phi Beta Kappa honors. From there he went on to pursue his lifelong interest in art, studying illustration at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where he met his wife Jeanette, also an artist, who shared his love for sketching outdoors.
A cross-country trip with friend and fellow artist Thomas Kinkade resulted in The Artist’s Guide to Sketching (1982). During his early career he painted jungle and volcano backdrops for animator Ralph Bakshi’s Fire and Ice (1983) and became interested in the fantasy genre. His art soon appeared on the covers of science fiction and fantasy novels but his big break as an illustrator came from National Geographic magazine with a series of challenging assignments working with scientists and historians to recreate ancient worlds. Gurney’s secret dream was to discover a lost city as significant as Troy or Machu Picchu and so, in his spare time, he envisioned and painted Waterfall City and Dinosaur Parade, which inspired the conceptual framework for Dinotopia.
His first Dinotopia book, the New York Times bestseller Dinotopia: A Land Apart From Time, appeared in 18 languages in more than 30 countries and sold two million copies. Gurney has written and illustrated three other volumes in the series, Dinotopia: The World Beneath, Dinotopia: First Flight, and Dinotopia: Journey To Chandara. In 2002, Hallmark Entertainment produced a lavish $86 million television miniseries for ABC-TV based on the Dinotopia books that received record-setting ratings and an Emmy award for best visual effects.
Founded in 1969, Norman Rockwell Museum is dedicated to education and art appreciation inspired by the enduring legacy of one of America’s greatest artists. The Museum houses the world’s largest and most significant collection of original Rockwell art, and presents the works of contemporary and past masters of illustration. The Norman Rockwell Archive contains more than 200,000 photographs, letters, and other ephemera. In 2008, the Museum was awarded the National Humanities Medal, which honors individuals or institutions whose work has deepened the nation’s understanding of the humanities.
The Museum is located in Stockbridge, MA, where Rockwell spent the last 25 years of his life. In 1993, the Museum moved from its original home at the Old Corner House on Stockbridge’s Main Street to its present location, a 36-acre site overlooking the Housatonic River Valley. Architect Robert A. M. Stern designed the Museum gallery building.
