art up front street open studios AND nh open doors statewide event together... NOVEMBER 4&5, 10-4

Our first annual fall open studios in conjunction with NH Open Doors. Studios, local shops, artisans, craftsmen and makers all over New Hampshire will open their doors to the public Saturday and Sunday, November 4 and 5. Twelve local artisan shops, makers, galleries and artist studios are participating in the Exeter area SEACOAST FINE ART AND SUGAR TOUR as a part of this huge yearly statewide touring and shopping event. Here at ART UP FRONT STREET we will have our resident artists plus four fabulous guest artists for the weekend. Come in, take a tour of the artists' work and space... see where we "create". Contemporary art, abstract, color, design, assemblage, and re-purposing found objects excite us.... come and see why. See you soon.

art up front street.... what a party

Thank you for coming to our first open studios EVER at Art Up Front Street. It was our trial run and it can only get better. We had so many well wishes and great conversations... AND art was sold.... which keeps the wheels turning here. If you missed the show, there is a little time left to visit all the art (including the guest artists work). This Friday pm, the guest artists will be recovering their work... so if you had your eye on a piece at the show, come back this Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday 10-4. A studio attendant will be here... and we have wrapping for safe carrying. Thank you again! See you soon.

art up front street..... THE decorating committee - Nicole Couillard

Every little step forward is monumental when organizing something "new". When you can finally get to the finishing touches, the feelings of accomplishment are wonderful. Dawn Amey figured a glitch with technology... and now she is on the home stretch with her designs for this weekend. Wo Schiffman has culled and handpicked her favorite pieces to show. Gaby Grossman has the "home team" in good hands.... so she is in the studio with her "heart" and her "smile" doing last set-up details. Of course, there's more. And .... then when you see the outside ... street side ... flowing with flowers and ribbons, it feels like the dreams are near. Thank you, Nicole... THE decorating committee. :-)
See you all soon. Friday 1-7. Saturday 10-4. Happy Mother's Day....
