Call for Art:

Lamont Gallery on Water
225 Water Street, Exeter, NH


Submission Deadline: May 16, 2017


The Lamont Gallery is seeking entries from Exeter area artists for a special pop-up exhibition entitled Neighboring, which will be held in downtown Exeter in June. Please submit 1-4 works (any media, including drawing, painting, quilting, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and mixed media). Works addressing one or more of the themes (interpreted broadly) are especially encouraged: neighbors, neighborhood, locality, proximity, distance, self/other, individual/community/family, house and home, built environment, and natural environment.


Please note: 
This exhibition will not be at the Lamont Gallery on the Phillips Exeter Academy campus. The Lamont Gallery will be closed this summer for repairs, so we are opening a short-term pop-up gallery space at 225 Water Street in downtown Exeter, NH (in the former Seacoast Artists space (right next to the Swasey Parkway).



Artists who live in Rockingham County, NH.

No entry fee.
