Sharon Arts Center is proud to present “Coming of Age: New England Artists Under 30” in their Exhibition Gallery, 30 Grove St., which will run from Mar. 2 through Apr. 28. Co-sponsored with the New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA), the exhibit will have an Opening Reception, free and open to the public, on Mar. 2 from 5 to 7 pm.
“This exhibition was designed to introduce young artists under the age of 30 to a new audience, and to also provide the community with an opportunity to experience art in a contemporary context,” said exhibit organizer and curator Kate Lenahan (NHIA ‘08). The show will offer a wide variety of mediums utilizing both traditional and innovative methods and techniques. The exhibited mediums will include video installations, performance art, paintings, photography, glass, ceramics, mixed media, drawings and sculpture.

Jurors for the exhibition are Cathy Sununu, director of the Portsmouth Museum of Art; Craig Stockwell, artist and professor at Keene State College; and Tim Donovan, artist and director of Launch Art Galleries.
“It is a privilege through this exhibit to support the careers of exceptional and innovative young artists at a point in their careers when they need the greatest visibility and impact to advance,” said Executive Director Keri Wiederspahn. “It is a vulnerable time for a young artist working towards both recognition and sustainability in the contemporary art world. Sharon Arts is deeply invested in sharing this vital mix of talent within the scope of New England.”
