ethan murrow: hauling

Through April 2019, the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, presents the installation Hauling by Ethan Murrow. The exhibition, which came about after talks with the museum’s curator Samantha Cataldo, features a Sharpie pen drawing on a 150-foot wall, a 52-foot long scrolling drawing animated by a kinetic sculpture and two large-scale drawings. It is a reflection of Manchester’s history and its people.Murrow says, “Each of these elements has been built with an immense cast of artists, collaborators, assistants and Manchester and Currier community members lending a hand.

jeffrey hein: growth and fulfillment

Born in Windsor, New York, Jeffrey Hein took his first drawing class when he was 17 at Ricks College under Gerald Griffin. After taking four years off to serve a mission and treatment for cancer, Hein resumed his studies in painting and drawing in Utah. In 2002, he dropped out of college to establish himself as a full-time artist. About six years later, he was feeling like he wasn’t being challenged enough mentally and concerned that he had plateaued in his growth. With a desire to be a better artist, he believed that to move to the next level he needed to make his work harder and more challenging. Hein says, “My end goal was to become a better artist, so I had to increase my weight mentally getting rid…
