Art 3 Gallery’s “Time for a Change” @ Art 3 Gallery

Art 3 Gallery's "Time for a Change" @ Art 3 Gallery | Manchester | New Hampshire | United States

Art 3 Gallery’s autumn/winter exhibit of 2019 titled “Time for a Change” will open on November 1.

November brings about a literal time change when we “fall back” and end daylight savings. It’s also a good time to take a step back and re-evaluate. We asked our artists to change as well, to try a new venue, medium, or even style. Joni Taube, owner of Art 3 Gallery says, “Once again the artists have surprised and amazed us with their ingenuity and inventiveness.”

Art 3 presents the work of over 70 artists in this group show. We are pleased to welcome several new artists to the gallery. “Time for a Change” is on display from November 1-January 31, 2020, during regular gallery hours (Monday-Friday, 9 AM-4 PM), weekends and evenings by appointment.
