The McLaughlin-Hills Gallery

There’s a new gallery in town (on State Street across from Agave and Dos Amigos)…and I had the pleasure of stopping in to explore some of the work from Latin artists featured in the gallery.  Visit WireNH for a great article on the new establishment and its founder, Catherine McLaughlin-Hills (who was very kind and helpful as I meandered around).  It only took a matter of seconds upon walking in to realize that this wasn’t your typical seacoast gallery, which was a welcomed surprise.  As someone who has very clearly made his practice photographing the beauty that surrounds us here on the New Hampshire seacoast, I most certainly appreciate more diversity in our art scene.  Also, as someone who is marrying into a Cuban and Colombian family, I think I’ve developed a greater appreciation for art outside what I’m typically seeing/enjoying.

I strongly encourage you to stop in and explore for yourself.  The gallery is full of fascinating and vibrant pieces of work…well worth a few minutes of your day on a stroll towards Prescott Park.

Save The Date | Friday February 5th

Exciting news! This coming Friday, February 5th – I will be featured as part of the Art ‘Round Town evening gallery walk at the newly opened Portsmouth Art Exchange (220 State Street), which is taking place from 5pm-8pm. This represents the first show that myself or The Daily Portsmouth has had, and I couldn’t be much more excited (especially since it’s the first time I’ve seen my stuff printed/framed in a large format!).

Mark Dearborn, a very talented local graphic designer, reached out to me and we collaborated on putting together some slick save the date cards and some posters to try and increase awareness throughout the area.  Check them out above and below!

I’d love it if you stopped by to say hello so I can thank you for visiting and supporting The Daily Portsmouth! I’ll be signing whatever posters and save the date cards that we have left for those who make the voyage over to Portsmouth Art Exchange.

Below are all of the prints that arrived in time for Friday’s event! This is all you’ll get to see for now, you’ll have to visit the gallery for the full experience… (It was like Christmas in January opening all of the boxes)
