Gerda Peterich (1906-1974), a German-trained photographer, established a studio in New York City in 1939 and after decades of teaching retired to New Hampshire in 1968. The black and white photographs on view from the permanent collection include tightly structured, often abstract, landscapes and images of architectural ornamentation that echo the spirit of German realist photography of the 1920s and ‘30s.

The English Department and UNH Museum in Dimond Library will host “Conflict Zone: Photojournalism from the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” from Jan. 26 to March 6.
The exhibition includes images from 30 photojournalists, including the work of three Pulitzer Prize winners. Comprised of photography both large and small, the images will provide a more dramatic and visual representation of the recent wars than can be given from a small computer screen, or quickly glanced on the TV news.
The University of New Hampshire Department of Music Faculty Concert Series presents Johannes Brahms Rediscovered: Christopher Kies, piano and Paul MacDowell, violin. The program will include Brahms' Three Intermezzos Op. 117, arranged for violin and piano by Christopher Kies; Mozart's Sonata in E Minor K.304; and Brahms' Eight Piano Pieces, Op. 76, also arranged for violin and piano by Kies, with Paul MacDowell providing valuable editing assistance in these violin arrangements for technical fine points such as fingering and bowing for the violinist.
