A Gift from Artist Jan Clayton Pagratis

Artist Jan Clayton Pagratis has made a gift to CSM of one of the paintings from her show:  "The Yellow School Bus" 14"x11"  Encaustic, Pencil Shavings, Rusty Metal and Wood, on Canvas.

Ms. Pagratis expressed her warm gratitude for the opportunity to show her work at CSM and a special appreciation for the interest expressed by the students. The painting she donated relates to students, and education in particular, and she felt CSM to be an appropriate home for the painting. CSM, the Division of Communication, Arts and Humanities and the Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery would like to thank Ms. Pagratis for her gift and show our appreciation for her work.


 Juniper II, 2004
" Juniper II, 2004" Larry Chappelear

A Gift from the Chappelear Family

The family of painter and avid sportsman Professor Larry Chappelear has made a wonderful gift to CSM of one of his abstract paintings, Juniper II, 2004, mixed media on panel, now hanging in the FA Theatre Lobby. From 1973 to his retirement in 2011, Mr. Chappelear was an advocate and coordinator for the Studio Arts program, promoted exhibits of visiting artists that led to the founding of the Tony Hungerford Art Gallery, became a  popular professor who helped thousands of students acquire a greater appreciation of the arts and more skill in expressing their own artistry, and married potter and fellow faculty member Susan Chappelear. We missed Mr. Chappelear when he retired from the college family and came to miss him even more when he passed away in the early months of his retirement. Juniper II is all the more treasured as an addition to the college's art collection, for his work will serve as a lasting memory of his contributions to the college and his skill and creativity as a painter.
