Exhibition Details: The Lamont Gallery at Phillips Exeter Academy presents “Neighboring,” a new exhibition that explores — through drawing, painting, fiber arts, photography and mixed media — themes of proximity, distance, the built environment and the natural world. Featuring works by artists and craftspeople living in New Hampshire’s Rockingham County, the exhibition and the gallery’s related, interactive programming invite viewers to meet, talk and linger in the local, as they view the artwork, explore the neighborhood and contemplate what it takes to build community.

Doug Danforth_artist_riverwoods exeter As part of the project, artists were asked to reflect on what makes a good neighborhood and describe the ways that they are involved in their communities. The Lamont Gallery, Frederick R. Mayer Art Center, Phillips Exeter Academy is located just down the road from RiverWoods Exeter at 20 Main Street, Exeter NH.

The Lamont Gallery is not officially a collecting gallery, although they do have a small permanent collection that includes paintings, prints, and outdoor sculptures. The collection includes several paintings by Diego Rivera, four large-scale metal sculptures by Gerald Laing, John James Audubon prints, a painting by George Inness, work by Maud Morgan, and photographs by Yousuf Karsh. The collection is at the gallery and in buildings across campus. Select pieces from the gallery are on loan to other institutions.

Art Show Date: June 20- July 14, 2017
