    PRESS ADVISORY AND INVITATION TO ATTEND:  

     

    ‘Looking Beyond”

    Featuring the Work of Alternately Abled Artists    

     

    A public reception, hosted by the NHAA and One Sky Family Support Advisory Council, will be held at the gallery on Saturday, Jan.12, from 1 to 3 p.m.

    • Exeter Hospital is the key sponsor of this exhibition
    • The work of these talented artists will be on display from Jan. 9 through Jan. 27, 2018 at the NHAA’s Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery at 136 State Street.

    • The New Hampshire Art Association and One Sky Community Services are collaborating on a second special exhibition of art created by individuals with developmental disabilities and acquired brain disorders – which are today considered “alternate abilities.”  

    • Both organizations hope this exhibition will continue to help represent those artists in our community who are all too often underestimated and would not otherwise be featured in a professional art gallery.

    • This is a joint effort by both organizations to foster better inclusion and understanding of those with developmental disabilities.

    • The artists featured represent all ages and a variety of art media.
