In this exhibition of Wrong Brain artists, a lasting and flourishing Dover institution, we seek to inspire across generations with outlandish, magical, and out-of-the-box artworks in diverse mixed-media.

Some of the artists featured in this exhibition are Dan Beauvais, Darcie Blake, Emma Sophia Cancelada, Alex Keown, Scot McKinnon, Sam Paolini, Joy Pratt, and more.

About Wrong Brain:
Wrong Brain is a rock for artists of the Dover community. Wrong Brain opened their current headquarters in March 2019, located at 66 Third Street. Enter and be greeted by bright murals on the walls, see artists conversing and creating, and feel the inviting vibe. The space includes a community area for workshops and gatherings, individual artists’ studio spaces, and a shop for handmade and upcycled garments by Sam Paolini; Wrong Brain’s founder. The organization’s mission is:
To provide a venue and outlet for unconventional, under-represented and emerging artists, writers, and musicians in the Seacoast, NH area through publications, multimedia events, open markets, exhibitions, discussions, workshops and community projects.
An inclusive incubator for creatives since 2003, Wrong Brain has involved over 1000 artists, and is 100% volunteer-run.
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.
