Current Exhibit

New Exhibition from NH Educator and Painter, Marsha Zavez

March 19th - May 9th

The Gateway Gallery at Great Bay Community College is pleased to present the exhibition, “Goings-On”, the work of New Hampshire teacher and painter, Marsha Zavez.  A graduate of UNH, Marsha has taught visual arts at the North Hampton School since 1999.  Marsha explains that she finds beauty in the “goings-on” around her, whether it is visiting neighborhood wildlife, the morning surf, or the creamy filling of a dessert cake.  Her colorful, larger than life paintings welcome in the natural world and the seasons of New Hampshire.  She chooses her subject matter because of the memories they evoke or simply the smile-inducing quality of the scene. This show will break the viewer out of the winter doldrums.

Marsha Zavez’s work has graced the cover of the 2013 Families First Calendar, and she has been represented in several notable shows in New Hampshire and Maine. She won the first place award in the juried 2012 NH Art Association exhibit at Prescott Park in Portsmouth and has illustrated two children’s books.  The exhibition is on view from March 19-May 9, 2014. The public is invited to an opening celebration with the artist on Tuesday evening April 1st, from 5-7 PM. It is sponsored by the GBCC Alumni Association and features appetizers donated by the Green Bean.
