Rose Bryant | Original Paintings

" A powerful wave of abstract mark making has taken me over.  I love the organic process of large loose movement with a slight dose of a landscape, trees, or sky. Most of my work is large...sometimes in the form of diptychs or triptychs. The process of painting is rewarding ...providing space for meditation and pure exploration.

Anne Marie Kenny | Industrial Quilts 

" My Industrial Quilts ™ are influenced by the Industrial Revolution, the Mill Girls, and technology. They are conceptual art quilts made with layers of wire cloth and hand stitching with wire. The contrast of machine-made versus hand-made is part of the aesthetic. I incorporate salvaged computer parts and patinated copper as well as other industrial objects in a standardizedrepetitive format alluding to factory made products while at the same time maintaining the intimate, personal, and innovative aspects of quilt making. My art quilts combine traditional and non-traditional quilt making"

Shannon Hays | Design and Illustration


I'm Shannon Hays—designer, illustrator, surface pattern designer and doodler. I began my design career more than twenty years ago as an art director for a publishing company. After many years of designing layouts, logos, stationery and brochures,
I discovered a new passion for illustration.

I now happily spend my days drawing cute characters and creating playful patterns. It's been such a joy to see my designs come to life on books, stationery, puzzles, wall art and fabric.

Gaby Grossman returns

Gaby was one of our very first artists at Art Up Front Street Studios and Gallery in early 2017. After a couple of years, she left on a brief hiatus (still making art and still committed to her community and state as a New Hampshire State Representative).  

We are thrilled she is returning because we love her passion for color, art, and all things creative.

Her "move-in" will be March 2024. Join us in welcoming her back.

More details to follow, but for now... we say yay!
