About
Local working artists' studios and gallery with art in progress and art for sale. Original paintings, digital art, prints, landscapes, abstracts, jewelry, assemblage, photography, watercolors and drawings. From very large work and to very small. See the works of all 8 artists plus take a peek through the doors to the artists' working studios to see what's on the easel. 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, hold exhibitions, and have two huge open studios each year as well as organize individual artist exhibitions. We are super easy to spot in Uptown Exeter (a rising arts and culture district). Look for the dark gray building with the yellow trim and flower murals. Come in, take a breath and a moment to absorb the energy.

This gallery always has something new to dazzle us. The best part is that the artists are often at the gallery and are eager to share stories about their work. Rose, the owner, is a gem and a truly gifted and generous painter and builder of community. I highly recommend stopping in whenever you are in Exeter.

This was a truly enjoyable spot. The place was filled with local artists work. You can also experience the artist's workspace and the artists are more then happy to explain there artistic process. A must to do while visiting Exeter.

One of the best artist co-ops we have been to on our vacation in New England. Every I e of the artists in this co-op is unique and at the top of their form. It is well worth the visit if you are anywhere newer Exeter NH!

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.

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!

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.

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.
