Call for Art Winter 2017

For thousands of years fantastic creatures have been depicted in works of art. From the soaring phoenix to the roaring dragon, from the magical unicorn to the mischievous elves and fairies …these creatures continue to thrill, delight, entertain and inspire our own imaginations to new heights. Some bring joy, some bring luck, some even send a shiver down your spine, but they always capture our attention!

This winter Gallery 6 invites artists to share their own creations in an Exhibition: Creatures From the Imaginary Realm. There will also be a section where visitors can discover some of the living animals or fossils that may have inspired artists and legends in the past. Entry deadline is October 28, 2017.

This juried show will give burgeoning new talent an opportunity to share their fresh vision and display work in a professional gallery setting to be seen by thousands of visitors of all ages.

Gallery 6 Mission

Gallery 6 exhibitions celebrate and promote the arts in New Hampshire and beyond. The gallery space is designed to blend into the Children's museum of New Hampshire Studio space where children's artwork hangs, connecting the playful creativity of children to the serious investigations of artists. Our high-caliber exhibitions are often based on a theme that has relevance to other Children's Museum of New Hampshire exhibits, that promotes creativity or is of particular interest to families.

The Children's Museum of New Hampshire schedules 4-6 exhibits a year and has these exhibitions planned many months in advance.

Gallery 6 is open during regular Children's Museum of New Hampshire hours and there is no charge to view the exhibit. (Those wishing to visit the rest of the Children's Museum of New Hampshire as well must pay regular admission.)

Gallery 6 is supported by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, and Georgia-Pacific.
