An Invitation to Share Your Passionate Pursuits

PassionatePursuitsWireTreeAre you passionate about something you’d like to share with others? The Thorne Art Gallery is inviting Friends of the Thorne, KSC faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the Keene State community to submit items they’ve created or collected for its summer Passionate Pursuits exhibit. In the past, this non-juried show has included paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, wooden objects, jewelry, quilts, and collectibles of all kinds.

Passionate Pursuits will open June 6–July 24 and reopen August 25–September 18. There will be a public reception to kick off the exhibit, but the date has not yet been chosen. Check the Thorne website for that info.

As space is limited, the Thorne welcomes participants on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to allow as many participants as possible, the gallery may limit the amount of work that can be accepted from each participant.

If you’d like to participate, please fill out our online form by Friday, April 18. For additional information on participating contact Maureen Ahern, director, 603-358-2721, or Paul Knowlton, exhibit technician, 603-358-2240.

The exhibit is not meant to promote a business or product, so nothing may be offered for sale. Everything must be ready to hang on the wall or display safely in an exhibit case at the time of drop off. Exhibitors will be asked to drop off their items on Thursday, May 15, or Friday, May 16, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and pick up their items on Friday, September 19, or Saturday, September 20, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
