This fall, the walls of Gallery 6 at the Children’s Museum of NH will take visitors on a visual flight of fancy. The work of twelve regional artists is being shared in a new exhibition titled Flight. This exhibition will be on display from September 19 to December 1, 2015.
Flight gives guests a glimpse into the soaring, gliding, riding-high theme of flying. Whether it’s a bird soaring free, a silvery flying saucer pausing to inspect Earth, or a dive-bombing insect resting before flight, these works of art all tackle the theme with creativity and humor. The exhibition is made possible with the generous support of the NH State Council on the Arts and Optima Bank.
Forty works of art have been selected for the Flight exhibition, ranging from simple abstract forms, to detailed scientific illustrations. These paintings, prints and mixed media pieces are mostly available for purchase and a portion of the proceeds goes directly to supporting the programs at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire.
Featured artists in this show include: Barbara Albert, Cori Caputo, Gordon Carlisle, Brian Cartier, Judith Cassell, Neva Cole, Larry Elbroch, Tess Feltes, Kate Higley, Taylore Kelly, Sue Pretty and Susan Schwake. The public (adults only please) are invited to join the artists at an opening reception on Tuesday, October 6 from 5:30-7pm.
The Flight exhibition can be viewed in Gallery 6 during regular business hours at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire: Tuesday – Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday noon-5pm. No admission fee is required to view the gallery only. Regular admission applies for families who wish to also explore the rest of the museum.
