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. 

Do you know your neighbors? What defines a neighbor, anyway? And what makes a vital neighborhood, from the local to the international?

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.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, you are welcome to drop by for the artwork and also for the “everything else” of what it means to be actively engaged in a community. Enjoy your lunch at one of our bistro tables, participate in ongoing art activities, stroll through Swasey Park with an ice cream, stumble upon spontaneous artistic displays, and join impromptu conversations. You’ll never know who—or what—you’ll find! Visit the Lamont Gallery website to learn more about additional programs in conjunction with this exhibition.
