AN ARTIST"S CIRCLE: A quick tour

A Salon of Artists , An Artist's Circle
Peterborough, New Hampshire

We were asked to put a show up. Without enough work to fill the space, we made a list of artist's we knew and who's work we respected. Next , we made phone calls and sent emails and the result is this exhibition.
Here is a preview.

The Sharon Arts Gallery is located in Depot Square, Peterborough , NH.
We have provided a quick preview of the exhibit here, but to really get a sense of the quality and depth of the show a visit is necessary. Most of the exhibiting artists have been working in their studios for decades often quietly gaining a national audience. One is a MacArthur Foundation prize recipient, three are now or formerly NH Artist Laureates. Works by artists in this show can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The Currier Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Portland Museum of Art, just to name drop a few.
For additional information on the artists and exhibition contact the Sharon Arts center, Peterborough, NH
