On View Now
January 11 – March 29, 2019
In this exhibition, brown and red toned Utah soil meets pure white and blue Arctic ice. 360-degree “spherescapes” of the Earth are just peculiar enough to reference other worlds. Through missions on the Mars Desert Research Station, to Iceland and the North Pole, to our coastal Maine backyards and beyond, Terrestrial Portals takes us on a journey to both new and familiar places. Through insightful panoramas, Cassandra Klos, Justin Levesque, and Michael James Murray put our imaginations to work. No admission fee is required to view the art in Gallery 6. Regular admission applies for families who wish to also explore the rest of the Museum.
Join us for a free Reception on Friday, February 1st, 5-7pm. The reception corresponds to the Dover Art Walk, and the Museum’s First Friday, $3 After 3pm program, during which any guests wanting to play can visit the museum for only $3/person anytime between 3 and 7pm.
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, Georgia-Pacific and the Fuller Foundation.
