The work of printmaker Margaret Merritt of Center Sandwich, NH, and an exhibit by the Merrimack River Painters are currently on view at the University of New Hampshire School of Law, Two White St.

The public is welcome to attend a reception for the artists to be held on Thursday, June 16, from 5 to 8 p.m.

On view through Aug. 25, Merritt’s prints are featured in a show titled “Impressions,” which includes Merritt’s most recent work. Merritt makes her prints primarily by intaglio techniques in which the image for the print is incised into the surface of a hard plate. An etching press is used to transfer ink, rubbed into these lines, to paper. Intaglio processes differ primarily in how the image is cut into the printing plates.

The exhibit by the Merrimack River Painters is entitled “New Colors,” and is dedicated to the late Lenita Bofinger of Concord, NH, a founding member of the group. On view through September 9, the show includes works created in oil, watercolors, pastels and mixed media. Participating artists are Dustan Knight, Charmie Curran, Ann Lynch, Susan Levenson, Mary Ruedig, Bonnie Jensen Halsey, Terry Heinzmann, and Kathy Dow Tangney.

For exhibit information, please call (603) 228-1541. The exhibits are open during library hours most weekdays, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Please check library hours at library.law.unh.edu/CalendarAccess.
