Goffstown Main Street Program’s pop-up gallery will be in place only for a few more weeks. If you haven’t made it to Local Color yet, time is getting short. The gallery is located at 35 Main Street next to Howes Pharmacy, and is open Fridays-Sundays now through August 5th. The gallery is a project of Main Street’s Art Team and has been in place to give local artists a temporary marketplace while showing off what a vacant property could be used for by an investor. “We’re very grateful to the landlord, Henry Demers, for allowing us access to this space,” said Robbie Grady, Executive Director of Goffstown Main Street. “This has given our team the chance to explore what it would be like to open a cooperative gallery, something that has been on our wish-list for several years. Both our in-house team and our guest artists have been great to work with, and they have all had opportunities to learn from each other as well as from the experience” The gallery features original watercolors, oils, acrylics plus pen-and-ink pieces. There are prints, photographs, stained glass, turned wood items, notecards, jewelry, and hand-made children’s clothing. New this month are buttons and pins made from recycled dinnerware as well as prisms filled with seashell collections. “We hope to see many Goffstown residents and guests in the gallery for its final weeks,” said Grady. “Our artists are so creative, we want everyone to explore the shop.” For more information, call 497-9933 or email email@example.com.
