NEWMARKET, New Hampshire — Lamprey Arts and Culture Alliance (LACA) will launch the Millspace Gallery, a nonprofit community art gallery in the Newmarket Mills, with its inaugural exhibit: Forward, Anew.
An opening reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, October 7. The event is free and open to the public. Following the reception, the exhibit will be on display until Saturday, October 30 on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 2pm.
According to gallery coordinators, artists were encouraged to submit pieces that introduce or reintroduce themselves to the community. “These are people of different ages, skill sets, and places in their careers,” shared gallery co-coordinator Val Toukatly. “These are defining pieces from local artists ranging from ages 18 to 75.”
“In many ways, ‘Forward, Anew’ is a mantra for us all,” added Millspace Gallery founder and co-coordinator John Herman. “We are all learning who we are moving forward after an unprecedented year and a half.”
Throughout the opening reception, attendees will have an opportunity to meet the participating artists and there will be light refreshments as well as a cash bar.
Since 2013 LACA has overseen the Newmarket Millspace, a nonprofit, volunteer-run venue boasting 5400 square feet of civic space, including a performance stage. Further details on Millspace Gallery exhibits and other Millspace events at www.Millspace.org
