MANCHESTER, NH – The public is invited to the First Anniversary Showing at ARGH Gallery, 416 Chestnut St., on Thursday, June 20. The opening will be from 5 to 8 p.m.
ARGH opened its doors on a very rainy June 28, 2018 and it has been a wonderful adventure since. Over 20 different artists have shown their work at our gallery and we hope to continue bringing wonderful contemporary art to downtown Manchester. Kevin Kintner, owner of the gallery, is finishing up several pieces for display on the evening of the opening. If you’ve been to the gallery, many thanks, if not please stop by and help celebrate our anniversary.
Over the past two months, a lot has happened in and around ARGH Gallery. Thanks first to the Rochester Museum of Fine Art for hosting the Robert Indiana Greenpeace LOVE print display on May 4. Being able to reach a wider audience for the gallery is always a plus and if you get a chance you should check out the great collection and exhibits on hand at one of the three sites the Museum has in Rochester. Currently they have a great exhibit of Warhol Marilyn Monroe prints at their Opera House location.
Next, thank you to the Gafney Library in Sanbornville. Every year as their chief fundraiser they have an art show where this year 60 artists submitted two pieces each, one for sale and one for donation to the library. they were kind enough to invite Kevin to be the judge of the show. it was a great experience and was only difficult because there was so much good work on the walls.
And thank you to the William B. Cashin Senior Activity Center in Manchester. The painting class at the Center was able to show their works at ARGH Gallery the week of June 6. we had a great time and were delighted to exhibit their work and encourage all people to continue to create art!
