Promoting the Arts and Artists in Our Community

Welcome to the Exeter Arts Committee!

Upcoming Call to Artists

EAC's Small Treasures Under $100 is upcoming in October

About the Committee:

We're an all-volunteer Town Office committee in Exeter, New Hampshire. Appointed by the Board of Selectmen to help promote the arts and artists in our region, we sponsor and supervise a number of events and activities. We’re proud to be one of the only municipally-sponsored committees in New England devoted solely to support for local art and artists. 

The committee is responsible for organizing and mounting numerous shows in the Gallery throughout the calendar year. In addition, the EAC is also responsible for the art that is continuously on display in the Town Offices across the street at 10 Front Street. This art is on loan for a period of four months from local artists who participate in a lottery-style drawing for the limited spaces in the office building. We are very happy to be able to offer local talent for all visitors to enjoy. 

About Our Gallery:

The beautiful, recently renovated space is on the second floor of the historic Exeter Town Hall. The gallery is a large, open space with generous natural light. Being located across from the bandstand makes the gallery a welcoming and perfect place to host events for the arts.

Becoming a Member:

If you would like to explore the possibilities of becoming a friend or a member of the Committee, please contact us at We invite you to attend two or three of our brief meetings which are held on the fourth Thursday of the month at 6:30 in the Gallery.  After attending your first meetings, if you so choose to become a member, please feel free fill out an application with the Town of Exeter.  You will then be contacted by the Town Offices to come in for a brief interview. 

Visual artists, performing artists, gallery volunteers and people with a vision of art in public life are always welcome. 

Let’s discuss your interest!
