Peter Milton (b. 1930) is a renowned New Hampshire artist and internationally recognized printmaker who currently resides in the Monadnock region. His etchings and engravings display an extraordinary degree of photo-realistic themes that incorporate architecture, history, myth and memory. His career works also include paintings and sculptures; this exhibition features many of his early paintings. Milton held teaching, visiting and artist-in-residence positions at major U.S. colleges and universities, and he has received numerous achievement awards throughout his career. Milton’s work is in most major museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Gallery of Art, The Tate Gallery in London, and the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.
Varujan Boghosian (1926-2020) was a revered New Hampshire artist known for his sculptures, assemblages and collages. His approach incorporated unexpected juxtapositions of found objects and ephemera into his works, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources including literature, art history and music. Boghosian was a former professor of art at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. His artwork is widely acclaimed and can be viewed in museums across the country, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Currier Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art and Philadelphia Museum of Art. Both Boghosian and Milton studied at Yale University under the pioneering color-theory artist Joseph Albers.
Robert Hughes (1915-2004), a distinguished New Hampshire artist and honored Rhode Island School of Design alumnus, devoted his 43-year teaching career to New Hampshire’s public schools. In 1991, Hughes was honored with the Living Treasure Award from the State of New Hampshire as he continued to sculpt in stone, plaster and wood as well as inspire and teach thousands of public school students. His work can be found in many public and private collections, including the New Hampshire State Library and the Currier Museum of Art.
