Reception: Thursday, June 22, 4-6 pm


*Please Note:

The Lamont Gallery on the Phillips Exeter Academy campus will be closed this summer for repairs. All programs in conjunction with Neighboring will be held at 225 Water Street in downtown Exeter, NH, right next to Swasey Parkway.

Neighboring features work from our neighbors—artists and craftspeople living in Rockingham County. The word ‘neighboring’ is an active one: it is an invitation to meet, to talk, and to linger in the local: to become aware of the rich resources around us, and to see how we participate in ways small and large in building diverse and thriving communities. Through drawing, painting, fiber arts, photography, and mixed media, Neighboring explores themes of locality, proximity, distance, self/other, the built environment, and the natural world.

Ongoing Programs:

June 20 – July 14
Bag Lunch at Lamont on Water

Stroll down to our temporary location on Water street this summer and join us for lunch at our bistro tables. Bring your bag lunch, your coffee from D2, your treats from St. Anthony’s Bakery, or some fresh goodness from Laney and Lu’s. Then see the Neighboring exhibition with works created by artists in our community, or participate in one of our ongoing workshops.

June 20 – July 14
Paper Houses: Building Communities

Stop by Lamont on Water and participate in this ongoing, drop-in workshop. Create a building to add to our paper neighborhood or create a community to take home with you. This workshop is free and open to all. Materials provided, but feel free to bring items from home to embellish your creations.

June 27 – July 14
Chalk Art Mural: How Does Your Garden Grow?

Add your flowering creation to the public chalk art mural adorning the Lamont on Water’s porch. Come back often to see how this garden grows and changes over the summer.
