March 7 – April 26, 2014
Sharon Arts Center, Main Gallery
Opening Reception: March 7, 2014
Sabbaticals are a period of rest from work and for those who devote their life to providing fine arts education to others, a period of time often dedicated to their own research and practice. The exhibition features the sabbatical work by four NHIA faculty members, Marcus Greene, Painting Faculty, Patrick McCay, Painting Chair, Maureen Mills, Ceramics Chair, and Gary Samson, Photography Chair.
Masters Class: Dan Thompson
This workshop will serve as a practical guide to portrait painting from life, from beginning to end. Through application, students will layer aspects of the painting language in long pose, as they learn how to use the grisaille to examine action, constructive anatomy, and elemental planar surfaces of the head and upper body. Color statements will form a critical foundation to an adaptable, effective approach to the human figure in oil.

Masters of Fine Arts Program
Held at New Hampshire Institute of Arts Sharon Art's campus in Sharon and Peterborough NH — The goal of the Masters of Fine Arts in Visual Arts, Photography, Creative Writing and Writing for Stage and Screen is to cultivate artists who understand, engage and evolve the professional field in which they are interested. 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 conceptual, creative, professional and intellectual artistic goals; and to identify the support mechanisms, skills, and expertise to complete and exceed these goals.
