This Spring,however, the Institute’s studentpresence in downtown Manchesterwill be redefined when senior RyanHaywood’s expressive illustrationswill display high upon thestreetlamps of Elm, Hanover andCommercial streets.The opportunity arose whenIntown Manchester, a non-profitmanagement company that focuseson business, maintenance, activityRYAN HAYWOOD / at work in the studiosponsored by local business, whichin return receive a name placementon a banner, thus fulfilling furtherbeautification efforts developed byIntown. “The Banner Program hasseen many different designs andthemes throughout the years,ranging from simple photography tolast year’s pop-art theme,” saidSamantha DePrima, director ofmarketing and public relations forIntown. “Partnering with theInstitute is something we havewanted to do for some time. TheInstitute has a significant presenceand is a major contributor to ourdowntown community.

4FEATURE STORYDOWNTOWN BANNERS...continued from page 3“We have an incredibly talented studentbody and I’m enthusiastic to have themcollaborating with Intown and the City ofManchester.”Jim presented the project challenge tothe students of the illustration program as anopen competition, complete with a cashprize, at the beginning of the Fall 2010semester. By December, five final campaignswere produced by participating studentsbefore the winner was selected. “I had apreliminary meeting in December withIntown [Stephanie Lewry and SamDePrima] to review the progress of thestudents’ work. When they viewed the works,they stated that Ryan Haywood’s work wasexactly what they were looking for,” said Jim.The banners will depict scenes evocativeof the downtown community and culture: ayoung violin player, reminiscent ofManchester’s rich educational music venues;an attentive waiter, bringing to mind themyriad of the city’s street-lining eateries.Seven of Ryan’s illustrations will hang for afull year and will be seen by nearly 110,000people, including Manchester residents andpeople who work in and visit the downtownarea. Such exposure is no doubt a greatprospect for an established artist, butcertainly a dream for a working student.“It was definitely a huge firstprofessional project and a great learningexperience,” said Ryan, whose images for thebanners began as gouache paintings onpaper, a medium that has helped to identifyhis illustrative works.“I started working ingouache after struggling to get fluid, opaquebrush lines with acrylic paint. I had MarkHoffman for graphic design my sophomoreyear and he turned me on to it after hearingmy frustration. Ever since then it has blendednicely into my drawing style of painting.”Ryan refines his paintings through mediatechnology, mainly on his iPad.“But thecomputer is really just another tool in myRYAN HAYWOOD / Two of his designsthat will be featured downtown.work box,”he told The Union Leader’sJohn Clayton in a January interview forthe paper.As any professional illustrator orartist can testify, not every major projectruns as smoothly as anticipated, but theresult is often very satisfying andrewarding. “There were kinks in thebeginning,” Ryan said of his overallexperience, “but I began to get a hang ofthe flow of the project, also workingwith Jim to manage timelines for thepeople at Intown Manchester.” As forthe final banners, importance resided inconsistency, something Intownspecifically expressed as an importantfactor for the project. Looking at theimages it’s evident that Ryan understoodthis and worked diligently to achieve.“They are all very cohesive and relatenaturally to one another,” he said. “I amvery proud of the banners as a series —to me they are seamless.”In many cases, the experience ofproducing such a large, professionalproject at the rise of an artist’s careersurpasses the monetary perks. Althoughhe is grateful to have won a $1,000 cashprize for his banner illustrations, Ryanseems more focused on the value of theexperience, especially with hisapproaching graduation from theInstitute this coming May. “My goal asan illustrator has always been editorialprojects with very tight deadlines,” hesaid. “The banner project gave me ahuge jumping off point both exposurewiseand [with] confidence. I could notthink of a better way to leave schoolthan with this in my portfolio.”The installation of the banners isscheduled for early April.

LIFEafterSCHOOLJAMES CHASEALUMNI CORNERJames Chase, BFAInterdisciplinary, 2010, is notafraid of taking chances orworking hard, two attributesthat have helped him achieveremarkable growth during histime as a student and now as aprofessional working artist.Starting in high school, Jamesunderstood his need to createart and to be proactive in orderto fuel his passion, even if itwasn’t going to be easy. Hebegan an internship at the Institute helping out around campusin exchange for a class per semester. This was in 1999, when theBFA program was in its infancy. It wasn’t until 2003, and afterjoining the workforce for several years, that he made a personalcommitment to pursue his BFA.Since that time, he has worked dutifully to hone his artisticvoice and skills to create work that can be described as eclectic,independent and unmistakably, “James Chase.”He creates densework out of metal, wood and found objects. “The creation of mywork is the result of stitching together aspects of sculpture,painting, printmaking and photography,” he says. “My work usuallybegins with a solitary idea and evolves into a matrix once a sense ofambiguity and form is achieved. Materials scavenged from fleamarkets, junkyards, discount stores, dumpsters and alleys make upmy sculptures. Rarely do I map out a work before construction.”James worked diligently to balance study and working longhours in retail during the nearly eight-year timeframe in whichhe pursued his degree as a part-time student, a timeframe thatmay appear nontraditional to many, but something that Jamessays was the best path he could have chosen. “I feel that takingthe nontraditional route has been an advantage to me as anartist. I built great artistic relationships with the faculty, and theyhave helped me hone my voice because of this,” he says. Thistime also put James in a unique position as a student at theJAMES CHASE / at the Annual Student Exhibition, 2010Institute during a rapid growthperiod. “An advantage of beinga part-time student for anextended period of time, wasthe ability to see the quality offaculty and facilities increase,”he says, speaking fondly of theappearance of the Institute’sfirst digital labs to thesubstantial growth of theprintmaking facilities.During his time as astudent, James receivedseveral scholarships as a resultof his artistic and academicsuccess, and worked as theprintmaking studio assistant,helping to lead classes,manage studio maintenanceand inventory, and serve as anonsite advisor to students. Hecredits his interest inprintmaking to his time– JAMES CHASE, ‘10interacting with faculty andpeers, particularly through studio critiques. “I was asked todefend my work a lot,” he says, “and not use it as a formula, andthat’s how the printmaking aspect of my work came about.”Since graduating from the Institute, James has chosen tofocus largely on printmaking, and has already made greatstrides in advancing his career as a printmaker. He took achance on reaching out to well-known printmaker Tom Huck,owner of Evil Prints Studio in St. Louis, MI. After several emailinteractions, Huck invited James to work alongside him at hisannually organized, weeklong Woodcut Boot Camp, whereJames and the nine other participants immersed themselves inprintmaking and Huck’s expertise. The prints James created“I believe my job as anartist is to createworks which evokeemotional connections,to articulate apersonal vision, anddevelop ideas bytaking chances.”continued on page 65866-241-4918 • WWW.NHIA.EDU


6ALUMNI CORNERJAMES CHASE... continued from page 5while at the camp were well-received and this past fall theywere exhibited in a group print show at the Slocumb Galleriesat East Tennessee State University.Immediately upon returning home from WoodcutBootcamp, James honed his networking skills even further bycontacting Sean StarWars, another renowned printmaker whosework he admired. “I emailed Sean and mentioned I had justbeen to Tom Huck’s Woodcut Bootcamp and offered to helpSean at any upcoming events,” said James. StarWars took Jamesup on his offer to assist him at Prints Gone Wild, a printmakingfair at which he was exhibiting in New York City. James assistedStarWars with every aspect of the fair, including setting up thebooth and selling prints. His experience at Prints Gone Wild ledJames to even more opportunities and admired artists, and hecontinues to keep reaching out to those he looks up to. “I justkeep plugging away,” he says, “and networking myself into theprint community.” James will continue his relationship with bothHuck and StarWars when he attends the Southern GraphicsCouncil print conference’s Printmakers Ball this March in St.Louis. He will sit alongside both artists at his own booth wherehe will display his body of work.His goal for the future is to attend graduate school andmajor in printmaking, and he is currently applying to severalschools throughout the country. Beyond that, he expresses hisdesire to work both in academia and as an artist as long as he canmake a body of work and inspire others. While still in hishometown, however, he continues to contribute to the local artscommunity. He was recently elected to the Manchester ArtsCommission (MAC) by Mayor Ted Gatsas. As an artcommissioner, James' duties will include promoting, fosteringand building the local arts community. Since becoming acommissioner, Chase has been put in charge of web developmentand online content as well as the creation of MAC’s new logo.Chase has also assisted in press releases and graphic design forletterhead and business cards.James attributes much of his early professional success tohis years at the Institute, “The Institute gave me the ability to findmy way and push me and enabled me to have a well-roundedfoundation by offering a great exhibiting artist roster,” he says.He also credits his friends and fellow students for their help.“I’ve been inspired by so many of my fellow classmates andlooked up to them,” he says. In addition, James’ motivation andnetworking skills have also contributed to his growth, and headvises students to do the same. “Reaching out to professionalartists has been extremely beneficial to my own growth as anartist,” he says. That first-hand experience of working with otherartists has also been helpful in learning how to install aprofessional looking show.As James moves forward with his artistic endeavors, heexudes a simple self-confidence around his role as an artist thathas clearly come from his years of hard work and risk taking. “Myart making process comes from the basic need to tell a story orevoke emotion. It’s as basic and as complicated as that,” he says.To students who are discovering their own artistic voices, Jamesoffers this sage advice: “There is so much merging and slicing ofstyles of art, it’s easy to get caught up in all the conceptual andmultiple techniques. Be truthful to yourself and make lots ofmistakes. Your voice will come through with that.”An installation by James ChaseNEW HAMPSHIRE INSTITUTE OF ART

AROUND CAMPUS12THOMAS ADAMS / Presents a gallery talkThomas Adams Fine ArtPhotography Collectionat the InstituteThe walls of the Emma Blood French Building set an examplefor some of the most revered fine art and contemporaryphotography when the fine art photography collection of Mr.Thomas Adams was exhibited this past October and November.Over 50 works were on display, spanning a diverse range oftalent, age and technical processes. The Fine Art PhotographyCollection of Thomas Adams exhibit included a generous spread ofsubject matter and was thoughtfully composed to include worksby both famous and established artists, such as Annie Lebovizand George Daniell, as well as lesser known artists and up-andcomers,like Douglas Prince, Rolf Koppel, and Institute alumnaLindsey Vladyka.Mr. Adams, who is currently in his junior year at the Institute,began collecting fine art photography in 1990 after purchasing animage of Georgia O’Keefe photographed by Todd Webb, and anOlympic rower in Hanover, NH, taken by Annie Leibovitz. Afterworking for 28 years as the executive director of the NewHampshire Chapter of the National Education Association, Mr.Adams enrolled in a photography course at Maine College of Art,Portland. It was there that he opened a photography gallery,Radiant Light Gallery, which featured mainly figurative andphotojournalistic photographs.In addition to Mr. Adams’ exhibition at the Institute, he alsoheld many lunchtime gallery talks for students during theduration of the show. These gallery talks heightened andcomplemented the curriculum for many photography classes, aswell as art history and liberal arts courses. “Discussing, showingand studying the works of fine art photographers is essential tothe learning process of future photographers,”said Mr. Adams. Apanel discussion on collecting fine art photography was also heldin October and featured Mr. Adams and three other collectors: Dr.Roland Bryan, Mr. Steve Duprey, and Mr. Bob Rogers, all of whomare also avid photographers.SPEND YOUR SUMMERAT THE INSTITUTE!Check out these upcoming programs designed specifically forart educators and high school students.2011 ART EDUCATORSSUMMER INSTITUTEJune 26 – July 1, 2011.
