"GRAPHIC DESIGN EXHIBIT"
2000-01-24 until 2000-02-29
KEENE STATE ARTS CENTER
USA United States of America
Some of the finest work produced last year by
graphic design professionals and students throughout northern New England
will be exhibited Jan. 24 through Feb. 29 at Keene State College in the
lobby of the Redfern Arts Center on Brickyard Pond. The New Hampshire
Creative Club's 11th annual exhibition showcases the talents of creative
directors, graphic designers, copywriters, illustrators, photographers, web
designers, and typographers working in northern New England.
This is an opportunity for people in the Monadnock Region to see
the annual exhibition, which is usually displayed only in the
Manchester/Nashua areas, says Nancy Haggarty, a Keene State graphic
designer and Creative Club member.
In past years, the annual juried exhibition has included works by
Keene businesses such as Church & Main Advertising and Al Karevy
Photography along with works by Keene State students. This year's
exhibition includes 35 pieces that range from posters to desk calendars as
well as advertising and packaging designs. Most are works designed for
clients looking to promote specific products or businesses, such as a
portrait brochure designed for a photography studio and a series of
customer testimonial ads created for a bank.
These works highlight the creative process involved when
professionals and students do their jobs so well that their designs become
works of art, explains Haggarty.
She adds that the Redfern Arts Center is a very appropriate place
for the exhibition since the building is home to Keene State's art
department, which this year was expanded to include graphic design majors.
The New Hampshire Creative Club gives design students the
opportunity to meet, learn, and interact with seasoned professionals
outside the walls of academia. The group meets monthly for a social
networking hour, followed by presentations relating to the creative arts
The exhibition is free and open to the public. The Redfern Arts
Center, located off Wyman Way, is open from 8 a.m. to midnight Monday
through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and
6 p.m. to midnight Sunday. For information about the Creative Club and its
exhibition, call Nancy Haggarty at 603-358-2120.
