DURHAM, N.H. — Portsmouth resident and current University of New Hampshire fine arts student K. Lee Mock explores her family heritage in the Seacoast in "Roots," a series of original drawings, paintings, and prints, at Gallery 280 at the Children's Museum of Portsmouth from Sept. 19 through Oct. 31.

Mock's artwork grows from photographs of her grandparents as young adults in Portsmouth, where they raised her, to reflect on family and community past and present and to explore her own identity and the process of growth and change.

Mock is entering her thesis year in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at the University of New Hampshire. She was awarded a Student Undergraduate Research Fellowship from UNH to support her work during the summer months.

Gallery 280 is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. There is no charge to view Gallery 280 exhibits. Regular admission rates apply for families wishing to explore the rest of the museum: $6 for adults and children, $5 seniors. Museum admission is free for members and children under 1.
