About
Local working artists' studios and gallery. Original paintings, digital art, prints, landscapes, abstracts, jewelry, assemblage, watercolors and drawings. Very large work and very small. See the works of 8 artists plus take a peek through the doors to the artists' working studios. We are proud to be the first working artists' studio collective in Exeter's growing art scene. We have been featured on New Hampshire Chronicle, Creative Guts Podcast, New England art publications and in local newspapers. We are open on a regular basis to the public, offer opportunities for artist advancement, hold exhibitions, teach private lessons, host youth art month once a year, and have two huge open studios each year as well as organize individual artist exhibitions. We are easy to spot in Uptown Exeter (a rising arts and culture district). Look for the gray building with the yellow flowers. Come in, take a moment to absorb the energy.

A gem of an art gallery
Oct 2020
This small local art gallery is a gem of southern NH. The events are always interesting and artists represented are varied and very talented! I've attended drawing sessions occasionally and find the energy and subjects terrific. A must visit if you are in the area.

Loved this place: welcoming and Interesting
Sep 2019
A friend and I stopped by an open house they were having at Art Up Front Street. The building, with its big white flowers painted on the outside walls, was easy to spot and very inviting and had plenty of on-street parking.

We walked in the front door into a small gallery featuring some local artists. Past the gallery, there was a corridor with eight individual artist studios, each with its door open and work setup to view. There was a lot of wonderful work to see in this artist collaborative, and everyone was very welcoming. We very much appreciated that Rose, the woman who founded the collaborative, went out of her way to greet us and answer our questions.

This inviting studio/gallery space is definitely worth a trip for both locals and visitors to see the work of many fine local artists. We look forward to going back soon.

Enriching and inspiring

As a self proclaimed art snob, I LOVED everything about this multiple studio and gallery. The owner (and brilliant artist) Rose has curated a collection of unique and gifted artists. All works are contemporary and fresh. Art Up Front St is a collector’s dream.

Fun Art Gallery

Fun local art gallery, but small. Unusual art and great way to meet and talk with the artists. Good variety of mediums. Reasonably priced art.

Come for the Art - Stay for the Artists!
Mar 2019 • Solo
There is no shortage of historic architecture and expansive seascapes in the south east corner of New Hampshire. But if you are searching for something a little different on your visit, look no further than Art Up Front Street in Exeter. This gallery brings together artistic influences from throughout the state: iron-melding, industrial weaving inspired by Manchester's riverside mills, and doll-making. Visitors may come away with a piece invoking a multi-dimensional New England nightscape, or a new take on a collage, inspired by the work of Joseph Cornell. Not necessarily looking to purchase? The gallery has a line up activities for visitors and locals alike, such as regular classes (including an "I Suck at Art" intro for beginners!) and charity evenings with organizations like Womenade. If you're particularly lucky, you will have time to stop in on a Friday evening, where the owner of the gallery herself can usually be found with wine and cheese. There is no better introduction to New England community spirit and creativity.

Great Local Art Space!

This is a great spot to check out. The front is a gallery and if you walk towards to back of the building there are artists studios. Everyone is friendly and welcoming.

Great Art Studio and Gallery
Sep 2017 • Friends
Amazing community art studio founded by local artist Rose Bryant. The building has about ten separate studios for artists. The gallery is open daily and special shows and events are held several times a year. On Friday nights you can join artists and friends on the front veranda for drinks and conversation!
