KEENE, NH- The Art Department at Keene State College is pleased to present two exhibitions, one entitled “Daytime Television” by Snowmass, CO, artist John Lloyd, and one entitled “Imagined Space” by Whitingham, VT artist Aysha Peltz, in the Carroll House Gallery through March 29.

Lloyd will be on site at the Carroll House Gallery to install his sculptural wood and metal works. His artwork deals with the basic physical elements of art including line and implied volume. Lloyd earned a BA in studio art from the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR, and an MFA in sculpture from Alfred University in Alfred, NY. Lloyd is currently the sculpture coordinator at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass CO. He has poured iron and worked at the Kolher Arts/Industry Program in Sheboygan WI and done residencies both nationally and internationally, including Vienna, Austria, and Dubrovnik, Croatia. See Anderson Ranch webpage, www.andersonranch.org

Peltz will also be on site to install her ceramic pieces. Peltz’s thrown porcelain pieces use function as a basis to investigate landscape and beauty. Peltz says “I alter freshly thrown forms to achieve the look of an action that has just occurred, a moment frozen in time.” Peltz earned a BFA in ceramics and a MFA in ceramics from Alfred University, Alfred, NY. Peltz currently teaches ceramics at Bennington College in Bennington,VT. She has taught at many schools and craft centers including the Kansas City Art Institute, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Her recent exhibitions include the Huntington Museum of Art, Huntington, WV, and the Artisan Gallery, Northampton, MA. See her webpage, www.ayshapeltz.com.

This event would not be possible without the support of the Roberta F. Roos Annual Art and Theater Arts Lecture Endowment.

The Carroll House Gallery at Keene State College is located on Main Street, beside the Alumni Center. Hours: Wednesday through Saturday, 12 to 5 pm. All Carroll House Gallery events are free, open to the public, and wheelchair accessible. Get directions at http://www.keene.edu/aboutksc/campusmap.cfm.
