Where to show art? - local galleries and more!

There are many opportunities to show work in the Monadnock Region. These galleries support local and New England artists to sell their work.

If you don't find what you're looking for here, try thinking out of the box! How could a partnership with your doctor or dentists' office work? Does your local coffee shop have some wall space? Is there a Bank in town that would consider sharing your work in a conference room? Does a hotel's lobby space need some spicing up? Any of these venues could be a place to hang and reach a new audience. If  you're set up for online sales, or if you provide a price sheet and contact information, this could be an alternative to your standard gallery route.
