Welcome to our guest artists for OPEN STUDIOS Nov 4 and 5

What would you do with out the creatives in your life? Really. What would you do. At ART UP FRONT STREET we LOVE our creative peers. And this November 4&5, we welcome our fabulous guests... all local.
Sarah Koff Printmaking. You may have seen her at the Portsmouth Farmers' Market or even at 3S Artspace with her HUGE wood block print. Her design eye with her ability to work in reverse is amazing. Plus, she has really strong hands. :-). her website HERE

Dale Atkins Ceramic Vessels. Dale featured her work at our last show in May. Four pieces of incredible work. This time she has a few more pieces of incredible work. All hand built, coil formed, time intensive, beautifully designed vessels. Dale's attention to detail can not be overstated.... her past includes fine art restoration (yikes, the pressure)
Scott Kuckler Photography. Can't quite describe the essence here in words. Mysterious, seductive, somewhat dark, unknown origins? Whatever Scott touches becomes beauty. See his series "flesh and bones" on exhibit at our open studios. We understand he will bring a special camera to describe how he does what he does. Be sure to ask him what "food substance" he uses in creating his photographs. his website HERE 
Elly Labranche Paintings. First time exhibiting with us...So thrilled to be sharing space with her AND her adventurous color. Elly's work is bold and luscious. When you see her paintings, you feel like you are "looking in" or "examining". You will love talking with her.... she gets a workout everyday teaching art to her students. her facebook art is HERE
Jeff Whittum Metal. Jeff is BACK. yay! Old metal found makes new art. Jeff's process is so organic.... he finds the metal (LOVES the hunt) and waits for it to speak to him. At our last show he sold a beautiful heron sculpture made from recycled tools and metal rod that actually moved with the wind. Some of his pieces can be placed in water features... hmmmm....yes... we can hear you thinking.

See you soon....ART UP FRONT STREET studios & gallery OPEN STUDIOS Saturday and Sunday NOV 4 & 5, 10-4 each day.


  1. SO looking forward to meeting new artists and seeing you again! It's energizing to see the beautiful works your fellowship inspires.


Thanks for writing! I will get back to you shortly. Happy Arting!
