We are so excited to be announcing our 5th Annual November Open Studios!
TWO DAYS: November 6 & 7, Saturday & Sunday, 10-4 each day.
It has been a wild ride over the last year (as you well know), but we have a special reason to celebrate. We are FIVE years old! FIVE YEARS of being in the community sharing, making, and honoring creativity.
Art Up Front Street LLC was formed August 2016. The building was purchased September 2016. After clean-out and fix-up, the first artists moved into their studios January 2017. Since then, the growth has been very organic ... feeling our way through changes as Exeter's first art studio collective.
Now, we have a milestone to celebrate and we would love for you to be a part of it over the next few months. Our supportive community has meant so much to us. We are here because you found us, you came, and you continued to be present by visiting, purchasing, attending special events, and sending well wishes and congratulations as we have grown. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
The artists who have studios here and who been represented in the past have been the most wonderful inspirations to our growing collective. This process only floats because artists do what they do, they find their creative passions, and they freely share that knowledge and support with the other artists around them. We are "in it" for all of us.
For our 5th November OPEN STUDIOS we have: 8 studios open to the public, an art demo in studio 6, specials, a free drawing, plus treats and bevs on the front deck.
The types of art exhibited and for sale are: Collage, large and small original paintings, digital art, "Industrial Quilts", prints, cards, journals, photography, tiny paintings, framed and unframed works, watercolor.
Our wonderful regular studio artists are: Artsy Barsi, Industrial Quilts, Artful Harper Studios, Deb Wheeler-Bean, Natalie Marquis Art, Ree Katrak, & Rose Bryant. We have 2 of our favorite guest artists - Jeff Whittum Metal Art and Dale Atkins ceramic vessels. Plus... we currently have an artist residency program going on and Tracy Hines Home is the artist who is sharing space with us for the month.
Great fun ahead.
We hope you will spend the day in Exeter and join us.
All windows will be open. Plenty of free on-street parking. Look for the bright yellow front, the large flower murals, and the big dot on the exterior wall that says "art".
