ART UP FRONT STREET studios and gallery believes creativity and community are the essence of happiness and personal growth. When we work together to share ideas, build our businesses, or teach others, we create a TON of good energy.... and art.

|Bruce Jones artist and maker building 4 benches for the garden|

Over the years the planting boxes, flower beds and furniture took a hit from the elements. The bottom photo shows the original layout of a stone checkerboard design (which still exists)...hopefully our "renovation" will do that space justice.
Bruce Jones, (top photo) Exeter artist and maker, is working on new benches. Thank you, Bruce. Most of the wood being used in the benches is reclaimed from past teen center projects. In the coming days (and hopefully as the temperatures rise to summer) we will plan art events in a place that so many had a part in creating.
Mark your calendar for our first big spring art show Friday and Saturday, May 12 and 13. Come by and tell us what you think.
