Art Galleries

Michele L'heureux

New Hampshire is known for its natural beauty, and this is certainly the perfect time of year to enjoy it, but equally enticing are the artistic vistas on view at the many museums and galleries located throughout the state.  What could be better on a hot (or rainy) day than an hour or so of tempered air and a glimpse into another world, real or imagined? 

Here are five summer exhibits to mark on your calendar.  Visit the NHPR Community Calendar for more events.

An Artist's Roundtable

Sep 18, 2017

What does it take to "make it" as an artist in New Hampshire?  Without big-city galleries and crowds of well-heeled patrons, we find out how Granite State artists innovate, especially with social media transforming artistic outreach.  We also explore how our education system views the arts, when the STEM fields, science, technology, engineering and math, get top billing.     

The show originally aired on August 22, 2017.

For a small state, New Hampshire has a plethora of private schools, each with a rich academic and cultural heritage.  Although the schools are private, many have art galleries that are open to the public.  Student and faculty art shows are on regular offer, but there is also compelling and unique work from both national and international artists.
