An Eye on Alumni: Elise Freda, Betsey Garand, and Martha Groome
From among our art alumni, three accomplished artists were invited to show their recent work—Elise Freda (BFA ’81), Betsey Garand (BFA ’81), and Martha Groome (BA ‘67). As professional artists, each has developed a unique artistic vision. Their work is linked by their use of an abstract language to reveal the minimal, essential qualities of their subjects.
The Art of Samuel Bak: Memory and Metaphor
Throughout his prolific artistic career, Samuel Bak has developed a rich body of work based on his early childhood memories of the Holocaust. His paintings and drawings utilize the power of symbols and metaphors to relate the pain caused by war and human destruction, the loss of childhood, traditions, and loved ones.
The exhibition, The Art of Samuel Bak: Memory and Metaphor, was organized in conjunction with the Pucker Gallery, Boston. The exhibition was funded in part by grants from the FEDCO Charitable Foundation, the UNH Center for the Humanities, and the Greater Seacoast United Jewish Appeal, with additional support from the UNH Endowed Fund for Holocaust Education, the Friends of the Museum of Art, the Dean’s Office of the UNH College of Liberal Arts, and the S. Melvin and Mary Jo Rines Art Exhibition Fund.
An illustrated catalogue of the exhibition is available for purchase.

Four artists were featured: sculptor and installation artist Elizabeth Duffy, print, drawing, and pastel artist Louise Hamlin, sculptor Duncan Johnson, and painter Esmé Thompson. Collectively, their works involve patterned visual systems—webs of line, repetition of marks, woven grids.
