Dear HAS member,

We are excited to let you know about a great opportunity right around the corner in Nashua to sell your art to the public. The HAS board of directors has put together a special committee whose sole focus has been to promote our artists in the public sphere.

Now, we need YOU!

The Gallery on Pearl Street will officially open it’s doors on May 19 and we would like to see YOUR art on the walls. And you must act quickly….there is no fee for you to submit your work and there are no strings attached to how long of a commitment you are making by exhibiting there.

All the artwork will be on display for 2 month periods of time and there will be a Featured Artist bi-monthly as well who gets to celebrate their time as Featured Artist with an Opening Night reception and media attention.

HAS will also be hosting events in the space and we are teaming up with Nashua’s Great American Downtown team as an active participant in their local festivities.

As you can see, it’s going to be an amazing opportunity for you to not only sell your art but also to be active in the art community and meet your fellow working artists.

Of course, there are requirements for you to consider and we have written them all out here:  ARTIST REQUIREMENTS FOR GALLERY

Again, we are moving quickly to make this happen and would like to hear between May 1-10. We will be continually making these Calls for Art as the year goes on and in our monthly newsletter we will start including various opportunities for you to participate in the Gallery as well as be a part of local events. 

Thank you for opening this email and please take the time to peruse our upcoming monthly emails as well.

Also, since this is a MEMBERS ONLY opportunity it’s a fine time to update your membership and invite other artists to join. You can always find info on membership at our website:
