"Spheres & Lines" exhibit by Rose Bryant explores abstract shapes and bold color.
Bryant's vivid color has always been a reflection of happiness, tranquility, and energy.

In this series she explores her color in themes of circles, orbs, spheres, lines and soft straight edges.
Most of the work featured in this exhibit is of larger format such of 24x24" to 40x40" plus combinations of other sizes.

Her abstract work in this series is reminiscent of landscape, space, and atmosphere ... remaining largely untitled to allow the viewer's interpretation to form freely.

Deb Wheeler-Bean offers the third in a series of "reclaiming your creative self"

The SPRING session starts April 3! 


Reclaiming your Creative Self
By Deb Wheeler-Bean, Educator, Artist
spring (April/May)

Do you think you’re not artistic? Do you feel anxious when asked to participate in an art activity? You’re not alone – I estimate 85% of the adults I know (& that’s a conservative estimate) believe they suck at art.
This is not true! Art making is taken away from us by a culture that promotes perfectionism and competition. And that happens early in our lives – often by the time we enter 3rd grade.
This course is designed to address these misconceptions while
learning the value of play in creating art.
I will use my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade lesson plans to open up the child inside – rediscovering the joy in art making and reclaiming your creative self!

Spring Session will include relief printing, hand casting & Blue Dog pastel paintings.
Dates: WEDNESDAYS April 3, 10, 17, May 2 (2019)

Each session will meet at Art Up Front Street/120 Front Street/Exeter, NH 03833
$200/4 week session (materials included)
WEDNESDAYS 6:30pm – 8:30pm 

come play with me!

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." -Picasso

Contact Deb Wheeler-Bean directly by email to sign up. 

Happy New Year and happy creating.

Art Up Front Street... Anne Kenny Reception. Thank you for coming!

What a great night for Anne Kenny's "Industrial Quilts" reception! So many lovely conversations. Anne displayed past show histories and numerous publications in which her work has been featured. Her exhibit looked amazing and will be up until December 22. If you couldn't make it out last night, drop by during regular hours. We would love to show you her work and describe her process to you. 
We are a very easy stop on your way to downtown.... just look for the gray building with the poppy murals on the side. Enjoy the pics!
